Home Max Life Solid Carbide Bit Onsrud 60-163MW

Why spend tens of thousands of dollars to acquire a CNC machining center fitted to your needs and operate it with bits of dubious quality? Beware of imitations and treat yourself to Onsrud quality and sustainability.


For more than 70 years, LMT Onsrud has manufactured high-performance cutting tools for various industries, ranging from wood to composites and exotic metals.


The 60-163MW (maximum wear) model is a double-flute compression type solid carbide bit specifically designed for cutting melamine and machining double-sided laminated and veneered wood composites. It combines two spiral flutes, one up cut and one down cut, that leads chips to the middle of the board, leaving a smooth finish (no chipping) on the top and the bottom of the board.


Designed for maximum life, its unique geometries and carbides improve the wear characteristics of the tool under abrasive applications with superior part finish.


Total length is 3" x 1/2"dia shank and its cutting edge his 7/8" long x 1/2"dia

A word from the boss 

New decade = many challenges! (20-01-24)

A new year has just started and another decade is beginning full of hopes and challenges. Among these, labour-related issues are likely to be a major challenge for the industry as a whole.

Succession problems have already begun to leave marks to both our suppliers and our customers. Mergers, downsizing and reduced services among suppliers, decreased activity, withdrawal of business and closures to customers.

Normand also has to deal with the same problems. The planned departure of several long-time employees with more than 35 years of experience will leave a void that will not be easy to fill.

All of this will have a significant impact on the quality and quantity of services. Should we continue to offer greater accessibility at the expense of a lower quality of response and service?

Fortunately, the Boss can count on a young and dynamic succession team with remarkable ideals but different from those of the old guard. The stability and continuity of the company remain at the heart of his concerns for the benefit of all his loyal clientele which has supported him for nearly 70 years.
