Leitz Tooling Systems introduces RipTec technology. Patented for window production, the RipTec system drastically decreases blow-out on end-grain machining and creates a stronger joint, sealed against water and air penetration. Also used in conjunction with finish planers, such as Leitz CentroStar or VariPlan, on four-sided moulders, the RipTec pre-cutter virtually eliminates plucked grain in difficult-to-machine woods.
