Leitz redefines tooling power with extended Diamaster WhisperCut range

Published on :Monday, July 19, 2021

Leitz accelerates productivity from single tool to product family in Diamaster WhisperCut range. Light, quiet and efficient – the three pillars of the WhisperCut programme from Leitz now extends tooling range to advance productivity in a quiet way. WhisperCut programme encompasses specialised technical design of the tools that produces perfect edges and cut surfaces and also makes the jointing cutterhead significantly quieter. More than ten years ago, Leitz developed the pioneering tool solution for this problem that still sets the standard in terms of sustainability, efficiency and quality in edgebanding: the lightweight and quiet Diamaster WhisperCut jointing cutterhead.

The reason for the noise reduction of up to 5 dB(A) is, on the one hand, the closed shape of the light metal tool body, which, with 50 percent less weight, protects the machine and the ears of the user, and, on the other hand, the special machining quality is explained by the proven DFC® technology, with the help of which up to 95 percent of the chips are collected.

The WhisperCut cutterhead also saves time and money. Imitated by many tool manufacturers, the WhisperCut system still sets standards as an original – especially with regard to costs and maintenance. The specially developed diamond cutting edges can be resharpened several times in the tool. Alternatively, the replaceable cutting edges can be replaced directly by the user, which means that the diameter of the tool always remains constant. Set-up and adjustment times are thus significantly reduced compared to conventional systems. A solution that can be described as efficient in all respects. 

The Diamaster WhisperCut jointing cutterhead is available in several versions. One is the basic version, whose cutting edges can be resharpened up to three times, and the WhisperCut PLUS version with an enlarged resharpening area on the cutting edges, which can be resharpened up to ten times. Both versions are available with a bore or shank, depending on the requirements. In addition, the WhisperCut jointing cutterhead is also available with an integrated hydro adaptor or with a fitted HSK 32 R adaptor. Both adaptor variants offer significant advantages in terms of concentricity and axial run-out accuracy, machining quality and tool life extension. 

For users of laser edging systems, Leitz also has the WhisperCut EdgeExpert variant in its product range. Also resharpenable up to three times, it impresses with its special cutting edge arrangement and provides even better machining quality. On request, these jointing cutterheads can also be supplied as a PLUS variant and can therefore be resharpened up to ten times.
