Ledermann GmbH & Co. KG, better known under the brand name LEUCO, is at LIGNA 2017 in HANNOVER to once again showcase itself as one of the world's leading suppliers of carbide- and diamond-tipped machine tools for wood and plastic processing. Its trade fair presentation this year focuses on new developments designed to increase machining quality and performance and improve the working environment through noise reduction measures. The new developments notably include new versions of the groove shank-type cutter from the LEUCO p system that offer particularly small dimensions and thus can be used to produce chip-free milling grooves in all layers.

On the noise reduction front, the tool researchers from Germany's Black Forest region have embarked on a completely new design strategy and developed an unprecedented aerodynamic design for jointing cutters with diamond cutting edges to set a milestone for the wood processing industry. This innovative technology will guide the air flow around the rotating tool in the future, resulting in significantly reduced noise emissions. Besides the aerodynamic design, the tools offer even more new features, which the international LEUCO trade fair team will be pleased to explain to visitors.
