1 Flute Down Cut

An 1 flute down cut are suitable for both aluminium composite material (a.k.a aluminium composite panel, ACM, alucobond), plastics and wood. Operating in the same manner as the 2 flute down cut, an 1 flute has a single cutting edge and forces chips back down into the material.

Suitable for

  • Plastics (ABS, acrylic, HPDE etc)
  • Aluminium Composite Materials

Adam’s Tips

Depending on the rigidity of your cnc, you can cut aluminium composite panel with 1 or 2 passes. Also, if you find that using a smaller diameter bit (e.g. 2mm) creates a higher than desired clean up time due to plastic chips packing back into the slot, try a 1 flute up cut for aluminium.

    1 Flute for Acrylic

    Posted by Waqas Qureshi on 6th Jan 2021

    Can't say much about the bit itself yet as (due to my own stupidity) I keep breaking them. Sometimes I drill it right down into wasteboard screws, sometimes simply trying to set the Z axis and moving the router way too much). When I manage to get it right, it does what it is supposed to do, however I am still trying to find out the right settings for Acrylic. But, my experience so far has been more than excellent with Adam. Both in terms of speedy delivery, quality of the products and most importantly for me, being extra helpful, answering all my newbie questions and guiding me along. I highly recommend Adam's bits as well as the CNC machines (BlueCarve).

    I know it's my first end mill, but it's great. Tested on MDF and it gives sharp, clean cuts all the way through.

    OK on Aluminium

    Posted by Don on 7th Feb 2020

    Good value. Arrived fast. Works fine on Aluminium with no lube using shallow cuts and multiple passes. 2mm bit chatters if deeper cuts attempted. Probably better with lube, but I didn't want the mess on my hobby CNC Router.

    I have used this end mill on MDF with a fairly high feed rate, the cutter performed well leaving a very clean cut. Highly recommend.
