INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSERTING TOOL BITS Insert Collet into Cover Nut until it clicks in. Screw Cover Nut to Cone loosely Insert Bit and tighten securely using provided Tool holder and wrenches iSO 30 Cone + Collet Operator Breakage If the router bit is within specification, tool breakage can still occur through incorrect routing techniques. Specifically feeding the router bit into the material must be accomplished in such a manner, that the router bit is permitted to bite or cut its way freely. If the router bit is fed too fast, excessive strain is put upon the tool, conversely if the router bit is fed too slow, excessive friction will be generated, causing destructive heat buildup. In both situations, tool life is significantly shortened or in sustained conditions, tool fracture is a definite. Any router bit can be broken if poor choices are made in the operating of the router. Suggested Procedure Should all of the above examinations be inconclusive, it is important to retain both new and expended sample tools (all pieces if broken). Please contact CAN.CAM and inform them of your issue. The following information should also be provided: router type, material being cut, spindle speed, feed rate and cutting conditions (mist oil) when breakage occurred. This data should provide enough clues for a solution to the tool breakage issue. Collet Maintenance Collet maintenance is one of the most common causes of inadequate tool life or breakage. There are up to six links in the chain that make up this critical tool holding system called a collet. As a chain is only as strong as the weakest link, a router bit can only be as good as the system that holds it properly. The increased productivity and reduction in overall costs is well worth your taking the time to regularly inspect and clean the collet system. The six critical components are as follows: 1. Internal Collet Clamping Surfaces The most important link in the tool holder chain is the inside of the collet. Resin migrates up through the slits in the collet and then deposits itself on the inside of the collet. This resin build up, if not removed, causes the collet to grip inconsistently on the tool shank. By not applying equal pressure throughout the entire gripping range of the collet, the tool holder allows the tool to resonate inside, causing slippage inside the collet. Slippage can cause “fretting”, a condition in which resins are deposited on the shank of the tool. This resin buildup can be easily removed from the inside of the collet with Rust Free and brass tube- type brushes. These brass brushes are non-destructive and in conjunction with Rust Free can adequately remove the deposits. Rust Free should be sprayed on and quickly brushed and wiped completely dry. Do not allow the liquid to sit and air dry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
