Cutting 2.0 AKE Edge Bander Pre-Milling Tools – For Better Cut Quality And Longevity

by Dipak Patil

The challenge for industrial customers is ensuring the very best consistent edge quality in a variety of materials, colours and finishes. Changing tools is expensive, time consuming and can result in machine recalibration – often done by outside contractors.

The patented Cutting 2.0 AKE edge bander pre milling tools will enable better cut quality, longer life, especially on difficult to process materials.

  • New V-Line Chip Space will guide the chips directly behind the teeth!
  • Reduced multiple chipping and improved lifetime!
  • Significantly reduced noise level!

The new V-Line chip space

It’s a direct result of the cutting 2.0 design.
From 2015/16 on, this is the chip space design for all AKE Standard, AKE Harmony versions, as well as for all new CNC jointing and rebating cutters.
It is a basic for our parametric construction!

Tip design and chip flow comparison:

AKE – the chips will be evacuated without multiple chipping.

Here you can see that the chips have no chance to be evacuated, they will be cut more than once.
