Manufacturing processes and materials

  Comparison of TREND's cutter edges using Dnamic technology and competing brands  

Professional TCT router cutters

Professional TCT router cutters are manufactured using D-Namic technology (TREND's specific method of automatic grinding) and feature specially developed micro-granular tungsten carbide tips from the world’s leading carbide manufacturer.

  Softwood, hardwood, plywood, chipboard and MDF  

The tip face is highly ground using advanced automated grinding technology to ensure perfect sharpness, resistance to wear, and a cleaner cut on softwoods, hardwoods, MDF, plywood, and chipboard.


Production is carried out on custom designed and built machines, and continuous laboratory testing during the process aims to give the highest level of accuracy and precision for a woodworking router bit.

They also offer better plunge cutting characteristics and many more re-sharpenings compared with tungsten carbide tipped router cutters.


Furthermore, a harder grade of carbide is used as the tool is not being brazed.
