Routers for contour routing

RCMB/RCM series, RHM series  Standard diamond-cut type router

RCMB/RCM/RHM routers have diamond-cut geometry and can be used for contour routing on most general printed circuit boards. The design offers good swarf evacuation and long life.

*(RHMFT)

RCMB/RCM series,  up draft type:
The RCMB/RCM routers have a right hand, up draft design with a diamond-cut geometry.  It offers good surface finish due to its up draft swarf evacuation.  It is suitable for CNC routing machines with vacuum extraction.
SIZE:ø0.6-3.175mm *Some models are made to order.

RHM series,  down draft type:
The RHM router has a left hand, down draft design with a diamond cut geometry.  It reduces surface burrs on the boards because of down cut geometry.  It is suitable for manual routing machines.
SIZE:ø0.8-3.175mm *Some models are made to order.

SC series  Chip-breaker flute router

SIZE:ø0.6-3.175mm *Some models are made to order.

The SC router has a right hand, up draft design with a chip-breaker geometry that chops the swarf into smaller parts and helps to reduce the radial load on the spiral flute.
It is suitable for peripheral contour routing.  And this series have a beneficial effect on burr reduction.

SCMB/SCM series  Chip-breaker flute router

SIZE:ø0.8-1.8mm *Some models are made to order.

The SCMB/SCM routers are suitable for general routing and slitting.  It also has higher ability to resist breakage and good dimensional stability.

RLE series  Chip-breaker flute router

SIZE:ø1.0-2.0mm *Some models are made to order.

The RLE router has improved design for good swarf evacuation, and it is made from anti-wear material.  This router keeps good accuracy in long routing distance. This router shows best performance in contour routing.

Routers for slitting

RP series  Up draft 2-flute slitting router

SIZE:ø0.4-3.175mm *Some models are made to order.

The RP router has a right hand, up draft design for slitting.Because swarf is evacuated upwards, this router is suitable for CNC routing machines with vacuum extraction.

RPU series  Up draft 2-flute slitting router with ULF coating

SIZE:ø0.4-3.175mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

UNIONTOOL LUBRICANT FILM

The RPU router is a ULF-coated version of RP series and the coating excels in self-lubricating performance. This series have a beneficial effect on burr reduction, because ULF coating can prevent deposition during routing nonferrous metals such as aluminum and copper.

RS series  Down draft 2-flute slitting router

SIZE:ø0.4-3.175mm *Some models are made to order.

The RS router has a left hand, down draft design for slitting.It is suitable for slitting when dimensional precision is required.  It is also suitable for spot facing work to prevent burr on the board surface.

Routers for soft materials

SF series  DP type single-flute router

SIZE:ø0.8-3.175mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The SF router is an up draft spiral single-flute router with a large chip pocket design. This router prevents a rise of cutting heat and provides excellent routing performance in soft materials such as Teflon and flexible boards.

Cutters for spot facing

SM series  Semilunar type cutter

SIZE:ø1.0-3.0mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The SM cutter is suitable for small spot facing on the surface of printed circuit boards for surface mounted components.Its simple shape is suitable for the finishing of the recess face with appropriate roughness for mounting components.

SI series  Straight 2-flute type cutter

SIZE:ø1.0-3.0mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The SI cutter offers improved quality of the recess surface after spot facing, and prevents surface distortion on the back side of the boards when thin boards are cutting.

IC series  Taper 2-flute type cutter

SIZE:ø1.0-3.0mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The IC cutter is a two-flute cutter with a taper geometry on the tip of cutting edge. It is suitable for the bonded SMT devices. This router is also suitable for spot facing work of IC cards.

Cutters for V-shape grooving

RV series  V-groove cutter

SIZE:ø1.0-3.175mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The RV cutter is a V-groove cutter for standard printed circuit boards.It offers stable V-groove cutting without burr and unevenness.

Routers for nonferrous metals

RA series  Router for nonferrous metals

SIZE:ø0.8-3.0mm *Limited availability ; May require special order

The RA router has a sharp rake angle on peripheral cutting edge. It is suitable for nonferrous metal such as aluminum and copper. Because the top geometry is similar to drill bit, this series can be applied to the board which needs drilling.

RAU series  Router for nonferrous metals with ULF coating

SIZE:ø0.8-3.0mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

UNIONTOOL LUBRICANT FILM

The RAU router is a ULF-coated version of RA series, and the coating excels in self-lubricating. This series have a beneficial effect on burr reduction, because ULF coating can prevent deposition during routing nonferrous metals such as aluminum and copper. In addition, because the top geometry is similar to drill bit, this series can be applied to the board which needs drilling.

Cutters for contour finishing

RI series  Notched straight 3-flute type cutter

SIZE:ø0.8-3.175mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

The RI cutter has notched straight 3-flute design, and allows chips to be divided.  It is suitable for contouring the general glass epoxy boards as well as nonferrous metallic boards and offers an excellent surface finish.

Diamond coated routers

DCE series  Diamond Coated Routers with Chip-breaker flute

SIZE:ø1.5-2.5mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

DIAMOND COAT

Union Tool diamond coating features excellent adhesion on the tools with a very hard surface. It is applied on the routers that are designed for high rigidity and efficient swarf evacuation. The DC routers achieve outstanding tool life and stable dimensional accuracy even on cutting-resistant materials. DCET series have modified base design for further improvement in rigidity.

DCRP series  UP draft 2-flute slitting Diamond Coated Routers

SIZE:ø1.5-2.0mm *Limited availability; May require special order.

DIAMOND COAT

Diamond coating on up draft 2-flute slitting router (DCRP) offers excellent wear resistance. Union Tool diamond coating features excellent adhesion on the tools with a very hard surface. DCRP series are suitable for metal boards with insulating layers (IMS).
