Leitz Tooling Systems introduces Ripple-Cut technology. Patented for window production, Ripple-Cut technology 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 4-sided moulders the ripple-cut pre-cutter virtually eliminates plucked face grain in difficult to machine woods. When machining hand rails, arches or other curved parts combination finish + ripple knives are used to prevent chipping and increase knife performance by as much as 50 percent.
