LMT TOOLS MEXICO: TOOLS FOR THE MEXICAN AUTOMOTIVE BOOM

In the past years, Mexico has almost become the "favorite location" of the international automotive industry. This has been made possible by the good training of the specialized personnel, the improved infrastructure and the proximity to the US market. Against this backdrop, the Mexican market is also becoming increasingly important for tool manufacturers. In line with this, LMT Tools founded a new sales company in Mexico last year. Which demands do Mexican customers have and which objectives has the company set? A conversation with Daniel Martinez, Commercial Director LMT Tools Mexico.

Trochoidal milling

OF DIFFICULT-TO-MACHINE MATERIALS CURVES

Engines in aircrafts, exhaust gas turbines in automobiles or knee joints in medical technology: In numerous applications, materials are used which are difficult to process using conventional milling methods. In this case, trochoidal milling is the ideal solution. Users can significantly reduce processing times, while ensuring high quality and process reliability. A machining workshop held by LMT Tools and Coscom has shown which tools are suitable for trochoidal processing and what requirements must be met by the machines.

A world first - copy milling cutters

THE TWO SIDES OF EFFICIENCY

Quite often it is the simple ideas that enable great leaps in efficiency. This also applies to mold and die making. For the high standards required in machining today, the tools supplied by LMT Tools provide geometries and coatings which have already been optimized. That users can now quadruple their tool lives again, almost sounds Utopian. However, this leap has now been achieved by developers at LMT Tools - with the first precision-sintered, double-sided copy milling plate in the world.

ACCURACY TO THE LAST DETAIL - INSIGHTS INTO THE REAMING SEGMENT

When a component is almost finished, they take a closer look: The reaming specialists at LMT Tools take extra care to ensure that every hole has the right geometry. Their attention to detail down to the last micron is now in greater demand than ever. Segment head Florent Mathieu explains in an interview just why this is.

GEAR WHEEL PRODUCTION TRENDS

From small gear wheels for passenger car transmissions to large modules for wind turbines: The global demand for gear wheels is rising. The most important aspect during the production of gears is multi-functionality. Milling tools must be able to fulfill several tasks at the same time to save time on milling processes and to increase production efficiency. Thomas Falk, Head of the Gear Cutting Segment at LMT Tools, gives an overview of the trends in the area of gear cutters.

THE SHORTEST PATH IS ... A CURVE

There are innovations that take a little bit more time to establish themselves. A good example for this is trochoidal milling. This procedure was developed decades ago. But it is only through the combination of modern machine tools with dynamic and fast controls and appropriate CAM software, that manufacturing can benefit from the complete performance potential of this procedure.
