The new LEUCO trimming cutter head is impressive due to its outstanding smooth milling surfaces and long edge lives.
Regardless of whether leveling, folding or grooving, the LEUCO cutter head can do almost any kind of cutting thanks to its lined arrangement of cutting edges. During an independent customer test, the LEUCO trimming head demonstrated an edge life of up to four times longer than other conventional trimming heads on the market.
The issue of sustainability played a major role in its development. Due to the new cutting geometries in the exchangeable inserts, there is less wear and tear and therefore a considerably higher edge life. Not only are time-consuming setting-up times reduced, but also the exchangeable inserts are used one-quarter less. Furthermore, the chip space geometry consists of an aluminum basic body that is configured for large chip volumes as required by the application.
LEUCO will introduce its innovative trimming head for the first time at LIGNA 2017. This tool is immediately available for timber construction operations and carpentry shops with a well built-up base tool program. Parallel to this, the new geometry can be applied to other milling systems.
All in all, the new LEUCO trimming cutter head presents itself as a powerful cutter head with an excellent price/performance ratio
