Vortex Tools reveals advanced chip breaker tool series

 Thursday, January 5, 2017

voretx-1Vortex Tool Company’s new Series 9000 tooling includes roughers and chipbreakers. Chipbreaker tools break the chip into even smaller chips reducing power consumption and vibration for quieter operation and longer edge life.


Series 9000 & 9100 Three-Flute Low Helix Roughers are designed for high-feed rates on CNC routers and are used when surface finish is not important. Ideal for dense materials such as hardwoods and plywoods, the Series 9000 roughing tools run quieter and leave less of a “rippled” edge.


vortexSeries 9200 & 9300 Two-Flute Chipbreaker Spiral tools feature chipbreakers that are staggered on each flute to produce a smooth cut, but may leave a visual line in some situations.


vortex-2Series 9400 & 9500 Three-Flute Low Helix Chipbreakers are a combination of the low helix and new-style chipbreakers. These tools run quieter and last longer as they break the chips up even smaller. Chipbreakers are staggered on each flute to produce a smooth cut, but may leave visual lines in some situations. Chipbreaker tools are recommended for hardwoods, plywoods and dense materials where higher feed rates are required.
