Optimum cutting materials for extreme conditions
Choosing the optimum cutting material for each application – this is one of the most important challenges for many kinds of heavy-duty cutting.
LMT has the metallurgical know-how with which indexable inserts can be matched to each particular case. The carbide specialists at LMT's group partner Boehlerit recently achieved a crucial breakthrough for this field in the development of new surfaces: the "Nanolock" coating.
The potential of this new bonding layer is demonstrated by a variety of carbide types with which cutting performance in the heavy-duty cutting sector can now be significantly increased.
