I route holes in Internal doors made of a sandwich of MDF and chipboard. I am looking to change tooling as my firm is using twin straight flute 16mm cutters at a slow rate of 4m/min. I was wondering of PCD maybe the answer but am concerned about plunging and hitting staples in the door. Or would I be better off with TC three flute upcut chipbreaker?

Also looking for a 90deg V cutter that will provide a good finish at over 10m/min.

1) Any way to control where the staples go?

2) do you have automatic tool change?

3) is top and back finish critical?

4) are you plunging or ramping?

5) is the center of the plug leaving as a solid or dust?

1> Yes but it is subject to human error.

2> Tool changer requires fixing

3>Top & Bottom have to be reasonable.

4>Plunging at present but could ramp.

5> The centre plug is a solid(glass windows)
