Machining of profiles

Coated or uncoated – each material brings new challenges

Thin or thick, coated or sheathed. The types of aluminium profiles are many and varied and to ensure the optimum machining of workpieces, the requirements on the tool solutions are just as varied.


Processing of block & plate material of aluminium

Dry or wet – a philosophical question

In order to keep the heat development (the friction of the cutting edge on the material) as low as possible, manufacturers have a choice. Either additional coolants and lubricants are needed, or tool designs with corresponding geometry, construction and cutting material are required. Leitz has specialized in so-called ‘dry machining’ and offers efficient and economically interesting tool solutions for sawing and cutting non-ferrous metals without coolant.
