The engineering experts at LMT Fette have created a comprehensive product portfolio - from gears for vehicle transmissions to drives in wind turbines. One hundred years of experience, combined with the latest research and development, results in constantly generating innovative solutions to further reduce the cost per part.
This is how the new UNIFY Indexable insert hob came to be. It was created to enable even more users to utilize carbide with economic efficiency - exactly yours. It strengthens the field of applications of the proven CarbideLine-I (Indexable) hob family in the module range 6-12.
The new single-part base plate allows a compact design (diameter from 150 mm) and thus also brings the benefits of using 4-edged indexable inserts onto smaller machines: A longer tool life, shorter processing times and increased operational reliability significantly improve its economic efficiency. A robust and very precise working tool has been created by minimizing the interfaces on the carrier body. In the practical application at Eickhoff Maschinenfabrik in Bochum, Germany, the new indexable insert hob passed the test with flying colors. Those responsible at Eickhoff were highly satisfied with the result: "The smooth running and the very even surface of the component are particularly impressive. The hob has delivered a very strong result and we are highly satisfied with the processing time", says Oliver Richter, who is responsible for the technology at Eickhoff.
