Evolution Annular Cutters

Evolution offers a full range of annular cutters for a wide variety of drilling applications.

Annular cutters save time and energy when compared to other hole producing methods. While cutting only the periphery of the hole, annular cutters produce a reamed quality, burr-free hole. No step drilling is required and holes are cut quickly and accurately.

Evolution offers two grades of annular cutters to suit different metal cutting requirements;
  • Cyclone M2AL High Speed Steel Annular Cutters
  • Carbide Tipped Annular Cutters

Cyclone M2AL High Speed Steel Annular Cutters:

M2AL cutters have been developed as an alternative to the more common M2, M35 and M42 cutters. M2AL offers many advantages over these traditional cutter types. Tooth hardness is optimized and heat treated to 68HRC to maximize cutter performance. M2AL cutters also include a tapered hardness from the shank, through the cutter body and to the cutter teeth. This makes the cutters more resistant to the torque created while cutting and thus prevent breakage.

Included Pilot Pin:

Evolution recommends that all annular cutters be cooled properly throughout the cut to ensure cutter life is optimized. In order to accomplish this, an included pilot pin is required so coolant can be delivered directly to the cutting surface. The included pilot pin is yet another value added feature that makes Evolution annular cutters the easy choice for industrial drilling applications.

Guaranteed Quality:

Evolution knows that project budgets are tight and you expect the maximum results from the products you purchase. When it comes to annular cutters, Evolution offers an unmatched quality guarantee. If you require any assistance, help us provide you faster and easier support by registering your product with Evolution. Once your product is registered with us you will be eligible to take full advantage of the Evolution Warranty which covers parts and labour.

Cyclone M2AL High Speed Steel Annular Cutters

Evolution Standard Geometry
Evolution standard geometry is sufficient for most drilling applications. Manufactured specifically to maximize hole accuracy while minimizing cutter vibration and extending annular cutter life.

Evolution ID Style Geometry
When drilling through multiple layers of material, Evolution's ID style cutters are recommended. Using this custom geometry enhances accuracy and saves time when compared to the alternative method of stopping after each layer and removing the residual slug. This allows for a single ejection of slugs when drilling through stacked material.

Evolution Metal Cutting Equipment

Mild Steel,
Thin Steel,
& Wood


When cutting metals, Evolution blades leave an instantly workable finish and produce virtually no heat, burrs or sparks. This allows the material cut to be handled quickly instead of having to wait for the metal to cool down, as required with abrasives. Abrasive blades can create excessive dust, fumes, smoke, fire and can even explode.


Evolution blades cut faster than traditional abrasive blade methods. An Evolution mild steel blade can cut through 6" of 1/4" thick mild steel plate, in as little as 12 seconds*.


Abrasive blades tend to flex and "walk" during a cut. Evolution blades are designed for accuracy and precision. The cuts are cleaner, leaving an instantly workable, smooth finish.


Abrasive blades wear down quickly. This reduces both cut quality and cut capacity depth. It also increases the costly replacement of abrasives required to complete the job. Unlike abrasives, Evolution TCT blades maintain quality and capacity throughout, saving time and money!
