LMT Tools at the EMO 2019:
Solutions for Industry 4.0 and e-mobility

Industry 4.0 and e-mobility represent particular challenges for the tool sector: connected, fully-automatic manufacturing processes coupled with growing demands on production and quality require increasingly more efficient and more innovative tool solutions which are adapted individually to machining tasks.

At the EMO in Hanover, LMT Tools is presenting solutions for digital transformation to a smart factory and e-mobility. You can also look forward to product highlights ranging from high feed cutting to the newest product extensions of the ChamferCut technology.

Visit us from September 16, 2019 on Stand E68 in Hall 4.

Industry 4.0 und e-mobility:
Innovative tool systems

Digital connectivity for maximum precision

Smart tool systems offer enormous potential for increasing efficiency and process reliability. This is also apparent in the manufacture of drill holes with close tolerances. One feature of fine boring tools from LMT Tools is their fully-automated cutting elements which are adjusted using electronic components. As a result, the edges can be set digitally so that they are absolutely precise and – if so desired – any wear arising can be compensated fully automatically. Apart from smart fine boring tools, LMT Tools also develops smart rolling systems – EVOline tangential rolling heads – for manufacturing external threads.

Custom-fit tool solutions

As a renowned partner to the automotive industry, LMT Tools supports technological development of the sector. Whether boring, milling, threading, rolling, reaming or gear cutting: with its extensive range of tools, LMT Tools covers the changing requirements on precision tools – from roughing applications and processes to finishing. The focus is on high-performance tools which are exactly aligned to the customer’s specific electric engine components and production requirements. This also includes the thin-walled, complex stator housing: among others, this involves the use of high-performance PCD tools, individually-designed reamers and reliable thread formers.

New high feed cutters:
Extended range of application

Faster processes, high process reliability and maximum feasibility: LMT Tools begins a new chapter in the area of high feed cutting and extends its range even further. One of the market’s most extensive ranges of tools for high feed cutting has been created featuring new solid carbide and indexable insert cutters. In terms of tool life and productivity, these new solid carbide high feed cutters are setting standards in machining steel and cast iron (CARBFeed Steel), stainless steel and alloys which are difficult to machine (CARBFeed Inox), as well as hardened materials (CARBFeed Hard).

Thanks to optimal adjustment of macro- and micro-geometry to the tools’ corresponding area of application, new records have been achieved in pocket machining which are significantly higher than the market standard. The modular MultiEdge 2Feed mini cutting system which is used primarily for machining smaller and medium-sized components has also been supplemented. The tried-and-tested indexable insert (WSP) geometry has been extended to include a type for machining high temperature-resistant steel and super alloys (ISO-S), guaranteeing maximum machining volumes.

ChamferCut partnership with Liebherr:
Exclusive agreement for the new tools

LMT Tools and Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH are collaborating to continue the success story of the patented ChamferCut method and signed a cooperation contract for the new ChamferCut-CG (collision gear) and ChamferCut-IG (internal gear). At EMO in Hanover, Daniel Ehmans, CEO LMT Tools, and Dr. Hans Gronbach, Managing Director Technology, Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH, signed a corresponding cooperation agreement recording mutual exclusivity. Liebherr already enjoys by far the largest penetration of the market for ChamferCuts offered by LMT Fette. Now, thanks to the new agreement, these latest extensions also enable users to benefit from the high degree of process and application competence as well as long-term expertise offered by these technology partners.

A perfect match

“We have already been linked to Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH for several years by means of a very close and agile cooperation which goes well beyond a basic supplier-customer relationship”, emphasizes Ehmans, adding: “This strong partnership is also the result of similar values and goals which we share as companies and premium manufacturers driven by innovation. We are, therefore, particularly delighted that Liebherr is once again at our side with ChamferCut-CG and ChamferCut-IG and joining us in designing technological progress.”
