Best services demand finest tooling, and with LEUCO innovations, dreams of offering perfect support to the industry for Holtkamp Möbelteile GmbH & Co. KG turns into a reality. The company Holtkamp Möbelteile GmbH & Co. KG places immense importance on the highest quality standards in its production. This aspiration is supported by a synchronously adjustable jointing cutter from LEUCO. It guarantees Holtkamp a high standard of production and simultaneously reduces setup times to a minimum.
Holtkamp is a successful supplier to the kitchen and office furniture industry based in Melle, near Osnabrück, Germany. “One of Holtkamp’s strengths is its unconditional delivery reliability. Our customers can rely on on-time production and delivery. At the same time, we guarantee a high standard of product and the implementation of all customer requirements,” says Ali Parlak, production manager. “Since our customers have very high quality standards, we routinely change the jointing cutters at defined intervals,” says Parlak. All this together makes setup time and tool costs important criteria in the supplier’s decision.
Best suited for identical panel heights
The milling cutter is ideal when machining large quantities with a constant panel height, where the same point of the cutting edges is stressed all the time. This is because the synchronously adjustable jointing cutter consists of two tool parts whose distance from each other is set by an adjustment function. In this way, new, sharp cutting edge sections are always used and the cutting edge width is utilized to the full. Their diamond tips guarantee a maximum of long edge life.
Holtkamp: “The synchronous milling cutter is worth it”
Compared to a conventional jointing cutter, LEUCO promised an extension in edge life ideally by a factor of 5: “We adjust the tool 4-5 times on average. As a result, the edge life of the synchronous jointing cutter is five times longer,” notes Parlak.
Another advantage is the shortening and significant simplification of the setup process, which conventionally takes between 45 and 60 minutes. With the synchronously adjustable jointing cutter, this means a short machine stop, readjustment with an Allen key in the machine without removing the tool, and no readjustment of the motor as the reference point remains the same as the tool parts move towards each other. All in all, a maximum of 10 minutes for an experienced machine operator.
