Producing router bits since 1972, Amana Tool has become the global leader in its field. In fact, Amana router bits were the first manufactured according to the Holz BG German standard for safety and quality. This standard of rules determines the structure and quality of the router bits’ composition to ensure a safe environment for the user.Amana router bits composed from the highest quality materials, and produced using unique technologies. A majority of the technology used is developed and built by Amana’s in-house engineers following decades of testing and experience.
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.
