Straight Router Cutters

Straight Router Cutters for many applications with a variety of options. For grooving, jointing, rebating and plunge cutting of solid wood, wood composites and laminates. Manufactured with a high quality steel body and brazed tips, or as a Solid Carbide Router.  We have a tool that serves the purpose for all of our customers. As

Solid Carbide Ball Nose Finishing Spiral

Solid Carbide Ball Nose Finishing spirals have cutting geometry specifically designed to cut wood or plastics. A ball nose carbide finishing tool rotates relative to the workpiece to make circular slots and cavities for contoured surfaces, grooving and pocketing, or for complex shapes without sharp corners. Used for 3D modelling, carving, fluting, routing slots with

Solid Carbide Compression Tooling

Solid Carbide Compression Tooling is used when cutting double sided laminates such as melamine, vinyl, high pressure laminates, veneered and painted boards. Prima Tooling’s  Solid Carbide Compression tooling can also be used on natural woods and wood composites where the edge finish is a problem when using standard spiral tools. The design of the tool incorporates

Solid Carbide Chip Breaker Spiral Tooling

Solid Carbide Chip Breaker Spiral Tools are designed to break the cut chips into smaller pieces.  This reduces both vibration and power consumption. Allowing for faster speeds on all materials for a finer finish, although visual lines maybe seen in some situations. The Solid Carbide Chip Breaker slots are staggered on each flute to leave

Solid Carbide Roughing Spiral

Solid Carbide Roughing Spiral tools are designed for fast feed rates on CNC routers when the surface finish is not important on materials such as plywood’s and hardwoods. The Rougher Spiral tool will cut a rippled effect on the material while producing small chips; making it an extremely quiet and smooth cut even at high

Solid Carbide Finishing Spiral Tooling

Solid Carbide Finishing Spiral Tools are a popular choice for most routing applications and board types, when a smooth edge is required. The helical cutting edge reduces material contact. Prima Tooling’s Two flute finishing tools are suitable for cutting materials with no special considerations. The Upcut finishing spiral directs the chips upwards and out whilst

What is PCD?

PCD is polycrystalline diamond which is manufactured by sintering together carefully selected diamond particles. This is done at a very high temperature and pressure in the presence of a solvent/catalyst metal. The results are an extremely tough inter grown mass of randomly orientated diamond crystals.  These are then bonded to a tungsten carbide substrate. This
