V-Grooving router bits for Alucobond®

Alucobond® plus composite panels can be shaped using a very simple method. This technique, called routing and folding, allows the production of multiple shape kinds and sizes. V-shaped grooves are routed on the opposite side of Alucobond® plus composite panels by using a “V” groove router bit. A thin layer of core material should be left at the base on the groove, i.e. inside the outer cover sheet. The untouched outer cover sheet can now be bent manually, giving a precise and clean folding line, which follows the router groove. The outer folded edge radius depends on the shape of the groove and on its depth. We recommend that the routing is done using a CNC machining centre, a portable sheet milling machine or a hand router. The routing and folding method can be used for Alucobond® plus composite planes with all available standard surface finishes.

 

The technique advantages are:
-low investment cost;
-simple fabrication technique;
-folding can be done on site, saving on transportation costs;
-low-cost fabrication of shaped components, wall cladding, roof edging, column cladding, flashing, etc.;
-flexibility in creating shapes;
-very economical;
-shapes are not limited by machine performance.
