Easy to handle DIACURVE, the novel nesting cutter from LEUCO perfects cut. The unusual DIACURVE nesting cutter from LEUCO catches the eye immediately. With end-to-end arc-shaped cutting edges and large gullets, the tool delivers high cutting quality without chip congestion. In addition, its diametre is always constant, which makes it uncomplicated and safe to handle.

If woodworking took place on a stage, the DIACURVE nesting cutter from LEUCO would be the star there. Its overall appearance and the design of the diamond tablets underline the innovative and patent-pending construction at first glance.

DIACURV is taking the nesting scene by storm

Everything about it is extraordinary: instead of many small individual cutting edges, the DIACURVE cutter relies on end-to-end cutting edges in the shape of an arc. With fewer diamond tablets and two alternating shear angles per cutting edge, the tool achieves precise and chip-free results without overcuts – which protect the surfaces of the wood materials. The extra-large gullets enable higher feed speeds and at the same time prevent chips from jamming.

Chip breaker grooves additionally reduce the cutting pressure, and their soft design prevents overcuts. Further, its PTFE coating allows the chips to slide off the tool better and lends it a striking appearance to boot. The unique design also allows for a reinforced cutter core, made of low-cost steel instead of the expensive heavy metal commonly used in nesting cutters.

The tool even offers space for more cutting edges

The new nesting cutter is offered in five variants, each designed for panel thicknesses from 12 to 25 millimeters. The filigree tool can also accommodate several cutting edges: four cutting edges are possible with a cutter diameter of 12 millimeters, three cutting edges at 9.5 millimeters.

The choice between two, three or four teeth determines the cutting speed and feed. Depending on the material and speed, feed rates of up to 29 m/min can be achieved with the tool in a four-tooth configuration.

The DIACURVE nesting cutter is suitable for nesting all common wood materials. The tool is designed for one edge life without resharpening. Its constant diameter simplifies use: no changes to the tool database are necessary, which rules out incorrect entries by operating personnel and thus increases process reliability – an advantage for regions without a comprehensive service network or where skilled labor is lacking.
