Cut Type

  • Clog-Resistant Double CutClog-resistant double cut burs have large flutes and sharp cutting edges which provide high stock removal, efficient chip removal, reduction in chip size, and good operator control. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, double cut burs can run at lower speeds and produce smaller chips than single cut burs, and leave a better finish than both single cut and diamond cut burs.
  • Clog-Resistant Single CutClog-resistant single cut burs have large flutes and sharp cutting edges which provide high stock removal, efficient chip removal, and good operator control. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, single cut burs remove more material per revolution than double cut or diamond cut burs.
  • Diamond CutDiamond cut burs have cutting edges running in both the right- and left-hand directions. With more cross-cut flutes than a double cut bur, diamond cut burs have more teeth on the surface of the tool where the cutting edges intersect. They break up the surface of the workpiece more effectively than a single cut or double cut bur, which reduces the pull on the tool, and provides operator control during cutting. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, diamond cut burs produce powder-like chips and provide more efficient chip removal than single cut or double cut burs.
  • Double CutDouble cut burs, also called 3R burs, have cutting edges running in both the right- and left-hand directions, which creates teeth on the surface of the tool where the cutting edges intersect. The teeth break up the surface of the workpiece more effectively than a single cut bur, which reduces the pull on the tool and provides better operator control during cutting. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, double cut burs can run at lower speeds and produce smaller chips than single cut burs, and leave a better finish than both single cut and diamond cut burs.
  • Fine Double CutFine double cut burs, also called micro cut (MC) burs, provide medium stock removal and a fine surface finish with low tool vibration. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, fine double cut burs can run at lower speeds and produce smaller chips than single cut burs, and leave a better finish than both single cut and diamond cut burs.
  • Fine Single CutFine single cut burs, also called fine cut burs, provide low stock removal and a fine, smooth surface finish. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, fine single cut burs remove more material per revolution than double cut or diamond cut burs.
  • Single CutSingle cut burs have cutting edges running in a right-hand direction. When used on manufacturer recommended materials, single cut burs remove more material per revolution than double cut or diamond cut burs.
