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 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.
