Today gear cutting processes are highly optimised. Details are becoming more and more important. This allows for further savings to be achieved. At the same time, expectations for quality and process security have also increased. Our tool solutions set the tone and cadence worldwide: LMT Fette is a dependable partner for large quantities - for example in the automotive industry - and also with very large machinery as seen in wind energy technology. With the power of innovation, experienced application consultants, a worldwide service network and excellent engineering, we will help you, the user, optimize your tool strategy for the future.
LMT Fette is the technology leader in gear hobbing. We offer the most innovative tool program for gear milling. In the video you can see highlights of our product portfolios: from small modulated automotive milling cutters all the way to large modulated gear cutting tools. With new materials and coatings - from PM-HSS to SpeedCore to carbide - we are advancing technology. Tool systems for gearing and chamfering gearwheels increase efficiency.
The typically complex multi-cut strategies process often leads to a time-consuming path to the final good part. As a leading provider of gear cutting solutions, LMT Fette has developed its own simulation software for GearSkiving. It allows a detailed assessment of the relevant process parameters as early as the design phase, taking customer requirements into account. With the help of the simulation software from LMT Fette, GearSkiving solutions are quickly developed from the customer drawing to the safe and successful use of tools.
Chamfering with the patented ChamferCut process is economical, precise and reliable. The precise chamfer profile is machined by chamfering. This process, as opposed to conventional transforming methods, does not affect the material structure. The quality of the generated chamfer defines a new standard, while, all the while, maintaining top repetition accuracy.
The process advantages combined with the low tool costs make deburring and chamfering with the ChamferCut the most economical process on the market.
Higher the cutting speeds during gear hobbing increase the thermal and mechcanical stresses on the tool. This is where traditional HSS-Tools reach their performance limits. In contrast, the new SpeedCore hob cutter from LMT Fette is made of completely new cutting materials. It has a significantly higher hot hardness, allowing you as the user to increase hob cutting speeds up to fifty percent. This offers great advantages: You can produce significanltly more parts on existing installations than before. And that, without the need for additional investments.
The CarbideLine product family stands for maximum performance for gear milling. Be it the solid carbide version CarbideLine-S (S = solid Carbide), the hybrid technology Carbide-H (H = hybrid), or the cutting insert tools of the CarbideLine-I (I = indexable): With the carbide cutting material from LMT Fette, you will always achieve the perfect result.
Even after up to twenty regrindings at the LMT Service Center, the CarbideLine-S and CarbideLine-H tools deliver the same performance as when they were first commissioned. The CarbideLine-I tools are theoretically indefinitely useable. The indexable insert is simply replaced.
