Now make mitre cuts!
Make use of even more options
After introducing the universal tool module and the associated cutter inserts for mechanical machining in the last edition of the Newsletter, today, in the series "ZÜND tool heads", we will be telling you about the advantages of angled cutters.
For simplicity, it is normal practice to cut materials straight and to butt-join them at an angle of 90°. As a result, at least one cut edge of the material is visible and must then be concealed. In modelmaking, for example, where attention to detail is the first commandment, these shortcomings are always a thorn in the flesh of the beholder.
Every craftsman knows how difficult it is to produce a perfect mitre cut. It all comes down to how precisely the cutter is guided. The mat cutting tool specially developed for this purpose, and also the T75-P (tangential and pen module) from ZÜND, will enable you to achieve this precision with ease. Mitre cuts from 5° to 45° can be made in material thicknesses of up to approximately 15 mm.
For example, the material can be cut at an angle of 45° with the angled tool enabling a wedge to be cut out. In turn, this wedge allows the material to be "bent" at a 90° angle. This does not damage the outer coating, resulting in a perfect outside edge.
