BUILDING THE WORLD’S FINEST ROUTER BITS: CMT build on strong foundations - Times have changed and technology has completely altered the way things are done, in this regard CMT is no exception. CMT facilities have been newly renovated and our equipment today represents the most advanced technology available on the market, but we still make and will continue to make routers and boring bits with all the skill and care that we always have. Essentially, the main components of a router bit are just two: steel and carbide. If either of these is less than the best, the tool we make will show it. CMT have researched steel and carbide since the beginning, and found exactly what is needed:
Superior Steel. All our steel comes from right above the border, in Switzerland, where they use an exclusive hot drawing process to forge the solid bar stock we use to manufacture our router bit shanks & bodies. The result is steel that is superior in strength and exceptionally resistant to fatigue and abrasion
High-Grade Tungsten Carbide. The capacity of the carbide tip to cut precisely and to last a long time is critical for the performance of any tool, so at CMT we use only premium micrograin carbide from Luxembourg to make the tips for our router bits.
