Cutting the Curve
LEUCO is expanding its existing DP nesting cutter range to include the DiaCurve family, a patented innovation that is not only interesting in terms of price, but also offers a whole range of advantages in terms of design.1 Mar 2023
LEUCO, headquartered in Horb am Neckar, is one of the leading international suppliers of integrated tool solutions and intelligent services for the woodworking industry. In permanent exchange with the industry, the Black Forest company has been developing ever more advanced carbide and diamond-tipped circular saw blades, hoggers, drilling and shank tools, drills, inserts and clamping devices for almost 70 years. The goal has always remained the same: To optimize the processes of customers in the construction, furniture and panel industries, in sawmills and interior design companies, as well as to open up new opportunities in dealing with the ever-growing variety of materials. However, LEUCO only becomes an all-round carefree partner with its comprehensive range of consulting services, its sharpening service in manufacturer quality and its future-oriented tool management solutions.
In the run-up to LIGNA 2023 in Hanover, LEUCO is now surprising visitors with a DP nesting end mill designed from scratch, the LEUCO DiaCurve end mill. Even at first glance, the special feature of this new type of milling cutter can be recognized: its arc-shaped or curved cutting edge shape and the unusual design of the diamond tablets. The design of the LEUCO DiaCurve cutters thus represents a completely new manufacturing and milling concept. Each individual DP cutting edge has alternating axis angles, which are intended to ensure perfect cutting quality in the surface layers. In contrast to many small individual cutting edges, the continuous cutting edges and the large, continuous chip spaces enable a very good chip flow without large chip compression. Clogging of the peripheral cutting edges can thus be effectively prevented. Currently, LEUCO offers the new DiaCurve nesting cutters in five different dimensions, which are said to be suitable for the most common wood materials. However, it should be noted that each tool is designed for a specific panel thickness range and that low groove or rebate milling cannot be performed with the tools due to the continuous cutting edge shape. On the other hand, the patent-pending design allows more cutting edges on small diameters. For example, three cutting edges are possible with a diameter of nine and a half millimeters, and even four cutting edges with a diameter of twelve millimeters. The tools are also designed as inexpensive disposable cutters, which means that sharpening with all its adversities is no longer necessary.
