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.

    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

    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.

    Have an Openbuilds C-beam DIY mill with a Bosch trim router as a spindle. Runs at 33,000 RPM. When cutting small parts found an uncut bit worked best for roughing and drilling holes. Got a perfect, clean edge when using this down cut bit for finishing.
