Complete package for die and mould manufacturing
Particularly hard steels or cast-iron types must be processed on machine tools for die and mould manufacturing. At the same time, this process yields extremely accurate moulds with which, in the automobile industry for instance, complex components will later be fabricated – it is therefore hardly any surprise that die and mould manufacturing is setting the pace for modern technologies with new machining methods.
The pace of technological developments has long meant that tougher and tougher demands are made of the tool suppliers working in this field. New machine tools call for higher and higher cutting speeds and greater dimensional accuracy.
Modern machining methods and new materials demand new tool and cutting material technologies, and therefore need a comprehensive range of tools. The range of LMT products extends from roughing and finishing tools through to chucking tools and shrink chucks.
