How do you define efficiency in production? What challenges are you facing as a result of changes in materials? Are you fully exploiting the potential of optimized tool logistics? LMT TOOLS combines the expertise of leading specialists and delivers tool solutions that will enable you to achieve sustainable competitive advantages.
COMPLETE PACKAGE FOR DIE AND MOLD 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.
MULTIEDGE DOUBLE 4FEED SETS NEW STANDARD FOR HIGH-FEED MILLING
The MultiEdge Double 4Feed face milling cutter enables you to get the maximum performance out of your machines and processes by setting new standards in high-feed cutting. It achieves significantly higher material removal rates with the same level of energy consumption – and eight usable cutting edges per insert guarantee the very highest efficiency.
GOLDEN AGE FOR DIE AND MOULD
The production of dies and moulds from high-tensile steel is one of the most demanding machining tasks. Cutting tools are subjected to maximum loads during the roughing process. As a result, the industry is constantly seeking to develop innovations that increase productivity. The latest example in this sector is the Nanomold Gold indexable insert coating developed by LMT Kieninger.
Mould and Die construction is to tools what the Champions League is to soccer players: rarely is so much demanded of them. The materials that need to be machined have often already been hardened. At the same time, users demand the greatest accuracy and absolute process reliability – users such as the Italian company Unimolds S.r.l.

Kuka developed jointly with the Fraunhofer Institute in Chemnitz and LMT KIENINGER a new milling cutter system on the basis of a 2-D cutter head. The so-called LMT-Speedlift can be precisely, axially and radially adjusted; precision and machining speed are the result.
CAR BODIES: HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL GAINING GROUND
The largest component offers the largest savings potential: car bodies illustrate just how rapidly the development of lightweight construction is progressing in automotive engineering. In particular, high-strength steels are increasingly being used. Ultimately, that also presents a challenge for the development of precision tools.
