The new In-Grooveâ„¢ Insert Engraving System features one tool body with 30 unique solid carbide insert knives designed for a variety of applications.
Industrial quality solid carbide insert knives produce crisp, clean cuts and last at least twice as long as comparable solid carbide bits.

This engraving system was engineered to quickly interchange inserts while tool body can remain mounted in CNC machine. This minimizes down-time and helps to maintain consistent cutting accuracy.

CNC Tool bodies are expertly balanced for virtually no vibration to provide superior cutting results.

Ideal for cutting laminated materials, veneers, MDF, plastics, wood, solid surface. and carbon fiber.
V-Tip inserts can also cut aluminum.
