Leitz introduces the MC 33 Coated Planer Knives, an IWF 2012 Challengers Award Entry, designed to provide extended service life and optimized productivity. The Leitz MC 33 coating is a permanent hard shell coating which protects the cutting edge from erosion and corrosion while providing a slick surface which resists the buildup of resin. MC 33 coated high speed steel (HSS) knives and tools last six times longer than standard uncoated knives and may perform as long as carbide knives in many applications, says the company. Coated knives offer a 600% increase in productivity between sharpening cycles, while dramatically reducing knife sharpening and replacement costs, according to the company, and the permanent MC 33 coating is maintained on the critical knife face throughout the sharpening process and service life of the tool. Leitz knives and tools are certified weight balanced. According to the company the new Leitz MC 33 planer knives are 30% more effective than previous MC planer knives and have up to six times the performance time of HS uncoated planer knives.
