Polished o flute router bits or plastic cutting bits are specifically designed for cutting hard and soft plastics. Plastic CNC router bits or polished solid carbide O-Flute prevents plastic build up from occurring during long cuts through material with low melting points such as polycarbonate, nylon, acrylic, ABS, fluoropolymer, and aluminum composite. 

Types of Manufacturing Plastics

Manufacturers use a variety of plastics.  In the automotive parts, and other production industries needing durable, reliable, and affordable precision machined parts.  These include polycarbonate, nylon, acrylic, ABS, fluoropolymer, and aluminum composite and more.  These materials are inexpensive in most cases compared to metals, and alloys.  

Uses of Plastic CNC Router Bits

Industrial parts are often machined from hard plastics due to the durability, affordable price, and ease of machining. This also makes plastic a widely used material for proofing concepts before cutting final materials. Plastic cutting bits have a wide variety built up based on material to cut, shape, depth, and length of cut. Plastics machining and manufacturing spans many industries, including auto parts manufacturing, electronics manufacturing, and aerospace engineering.  Plastics are greatly implicated in the sign making industry as well as for art.  Polished O-Flute bits leave a nice finish as well as make machine cleanup much easier.
