LEUCO: New Finger Joint Cutters

Published on :Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Flexible use with high performance

With a new finger geometry, LEUCO is adding an innovative cutter to its program that can be used with both fiber-containing and fiberless PU glue. The cutter is ideal for companies that make joints with both PU glues, but also provides many advantages for all other companies.

Due to the universal application possibilities, the machine operator will no longer have to change the cutter in the future, i.e. machine downtimes will be reduced. On the other hand, there is no longer any danger of mixing up the previously different cutters, which reduces the reject rate.

In addition, the optimized geometry increases the stability of the fingers and significantly minimizes edge splits, increasing the output quality.

Great cost-effectiveness

Compared to traditional HS finger joint cutters, the edge life of the new finger cutters is up to 5 times as long. LEUCO achieves this through the combination of the cutting material Solid 34 and the LEUCO topcoat coating. The high bending strength of the cutting material reduces the risk of tooth breakage while maintaining the same finger jointing quality compared to standard designs. This is true even at high feed rates thanks to double the number of teeth compared to the standard design. The benefits of the LEUCO topcoat coating are retained in full after resharpening.

The new version ZL 15/15 actually Z4 is available from stock. Other versions are available on request. To achieve optimum strength in finger joints, all influencing factors such as material, glue, machine or tool must be optimally matched. LEUCO tool experts always advise finger jointing operations after taking into account all influencing variables.
