GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Leitz has expanded on the ProfilCut Q profile insert system with the ProfilCut Q Diamond, the first profile polycrystalline diamond (PCD) insert system to accurately maintain diameter and profile.
Due in part to proprietary safety locked inserts which cannot move under centrifugal forces, Leitz says the ProfilCut Q PCD is the fastest diamond insert system with cutting speeds of 120 meters per second.
Precisely located and secured PCD knives offer at least 20 times the service life of carbide inserts, thereby reducing the consumption of the raw material.
Leitz says the enhanced service life provided by ProfilCut Q PCD inserts can improve production efficiency by reducing downtime due to tool changes and can offer significant economic savings.
Available in a lightweight aluminum or steel design, ProfilCut Q Diamond processes high-end and abrasive materials accurately and with repeatability and it can be adapted for use with virtually any machine application.
Leitz is a high-technology engineer and manufacturer of precision tooling and systems for machining wood, plastics, and advanced composites. With corporate headquarters in Oberkochen, Germany, Leitz operates seven service centers across North America to ensure convenient and timely response to customer tooling needs.
