Udo Leiber:Saw blades are the beginning of the LEUCO history and they are a never-ending and quite exciting topic. Last year during LIGNA in Hanover/Germany we introduced our new tungsten carbide tipped panel sizing saw blade families “LEUCO U-Cut” and “LEUCO Q-Cut”. They are tipped with the new tungsten carbide grade “HL Board 04 plus”. This tungsten carbide wasn’t used in our industry before; it’s been especially composed for LEUCO. Our customers benefit from 30% longer edge lives compared to the previous LEUCO panel sizing saw blades. The new saw blade families are a top seller worldwide and we get excellent feedback from our customers.
As well as new tooling innovations, there is an increasing demand for cutting processes consulting, e.g. how to process new materials. As much as possible we try to master it with standard tools, but often we need to go for customized solutions. Here, field expertise is the key. We focus on being the first contact partner for our customers for any tool requirements.
