|For example, Amana router bits are made of carbon alloy steel with vanadium particles. This improves the structural integrity of the steel, preventing corrosion and defects in the internal structure of the material which, can lead to cracks and breaks. In planning and producing the tools, Amana Tool® follows
safety standards that are among the most rigorous in the wood industry — the
EN847 and HOLZ BG standards|
High-tech machines process the carbon alloy steel to manufacture the router bodies in a single clamping. The result is a router bit with superior balance, centricity, precision and symmetry.Carbide used by Amana is supplied by CERATIZIT, the leading carbide producer in Europe. All of the company's carbide grades – many of which are exclusive to Amana Tool – comprise of sub-microscopic grain particles that create a finer edge for long-lasting performance. This is twice that of most standard carbide tools in the market. The carbide tips are then brazed onto the router bits using a 50% silver weld by machines also built especially for Amana.Grinding is done with a sophisticated CNC machine in a single clamping. The result is a higher quality and very precise router bit.
Delicate grain wheels are used to grind a cutting edge in the especially hard grade carbide without causing microscopic cracks or breaks that could weaken the bit. All Amana Tool products are then laser etched with essential information for the tool's use. This includes RPM range and clamping depth. Laser etching ensures that the information can’t be erased with tool use.Each tool that bears the Amana Tool name is created under the sharp scrutiny of the company's inspection department and in accordance with the International Organization of Standardization's (ISO's) 9000 quality management standard. This criterion makes Amana router bits a world leader in quality and value.Browse through our Amana router bit catalogue.
