The carbide cutting tip is brazed to a steel shank specially designed to cut grooves in composite building materials. Routing V-shaped grooves, whereby the aluminum cover and a part of the polyethylene core is removed, allows folding/creasing the remaining material by hand. Special Amana-grade carbide provides much longer tool life especially compared to carbide tipped tooling.

Composite Material Panels Like TCM, CCM, and ACM are widely used for cladding many diverse exterior and interior applications such as office buildings, hospitals, convention centers, airports, and hotels. The long lasting durability of the material makes it an excellent choice for buildings, signage, displays, etc.

Designed for cutting and scoring aluminum sandwich materials including:

  • Acetate
  • Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS)
  • Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, Clay, Zinc & Wood Composite Panels
  • Aluminum 5052
  • Aluminum Composite Materials (ACM)
  • Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP)*
  • ALPOLIC® Copper Composite Material (CCM)
  • Alucobond®
  • Alupanel®
  • Bakelite
  • Dibond®
  • Durabond**
  • e-panel™
  • Etalbond®
  • Lexan™
  • Nylon
  • PE and FR Cores
  • Phenolics
  • Plastic/Acrylic
  • Plexiglas®
  • PVC
  • Stainless Steel Composite Material (SCM)
  • Titanium Composite Material (TCM)
  • Wood

*Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP) is a type of ACM flat panel that consists of two thin aluminum sheets bonded to a non-aluminum core. ACPs are frequently used for external cladding or facades of buildings, insulation, and signage. **Durabond is a polyethylene core with 0.3mm colored aluminum sheet on either side, pre-finished requiring no decoration.

Benefits of Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) Coating

  • Creates a harder and tougher cutting edge, allows for a prolonged cutting edge life and helps to prevent the build-up of material in the flutes while cutting
  • Have the tendency to run/spin much faster than an uncoated tool
  • Optimized flute geometry and low Total Indicated Runout (TIR) guarantees clean cuts, essentially eliminates sanding and reduces chatter (where the machine or work piece vibrates) under high chip loads (when used with low TIR spindles)
  • High flute volume supports high feed rates and chip loads
  • High aspect ratio for single pass deep-reach cutting
  • Flute geometry optimized for cutting sign foam, sign board, hardwoods, thermoplastics and phenolic composites

Product Questions

please advise what is different between this blade and product ID 508400? i understand there are few different such as number of teeth, size of the blade etc. what is the performance different work on ACP?
regards
Kent

Thank you for the question. The 508400 is a 2 piece set that acts like a dado set in achieving a wider flat bottom kerf range from 2mm – 3mm in ACM material. The RC-4300 is an insert V scoring blade that will only produce a 2mm flat bottom kerf. The insert carbide is made from a stronger grade of carbide due to the fact that it is not brazed. You also do not have to mess with the shims, it is ready to use out of the box. Both will give a smooth clean cut.
