In addition to traditional grooves for rear cabinet paneling, grooves and milling grooves for pilaster strips, (connection) fittings, hinges, assembly plates, etc. rank among the most often used milling processes of a groove shank-type cutter.
At the LIGNA 2017, LEUCO will present the new small dimensions offered by the LEUCO p-System shank-type cutter. At the same time, to round out its trade fair exhibits and demos, LEUCO will be showing exciting application samples that were all produced using cutters from the new shank-type cutter product line. At first glance, you wouldn't think that some of the work pieces could be produced by a shank-type cutter. Since grooves are not only cut into the surface, but also on the front and longitudinal edge, this is an interesting area of application for this shank cutter. Thanks to the high shear angle of 70 degrees, the LEUCO p-System does not simply trim the fibers, rather peels them off with minimal cutting pressure. It is possible to produce flat and deep grooves and milling grooves on almost all surfaces without generating chips. The material-conserving process allows oak veneers, for example, to be machined across and along the fibers without chipping, thus meeting the highest quality standards. The outstanding technological performance of this milling system combined with additional new dimensions allow for solutions that will send chills of excitement throughout the industry.
