New ideas and innovations form the foundation for success and growth. The fact that LMT Tools puts this into practice is demonstrated by the renewed award of the TOP 100 seal in 2024. This is the second time that LMT Tools GmbH & Co. KG has received this award on behalf of compamedia, making it one of the TOP 100 medium-sized companies. As an internationally positioned manufacturer of precision tools, we are proud of our special innovative strength and above-average innovation successes. For over a century, more than 1,000 employees worldwide have been continuously developing new precision tools, including those with innovative geometries, novel solutions and intelligent tools.



The goal of innovation leadership is firmly anchored in the corporate strategy. The management relies on a wide range of methods to ensure that ideas are constantly arising, from which innovations can be generated. These include design thinking, agile product development, patent research, but also field trials at customers' premises and close cooperation with universities. Internal measures such as global innovation conferences and the initiation of an innovation hub at each location complement this. Thanks to this extremely fruitful collaboration, new impulses are constantly being generated.

Modern Manufacturing

Modern manufacturing processes such as 3D printing have also long been established in production. For example, in the production of innovative indexable insert milling cutters or the new T3.18 EVO tangential rolling head, a tool for the efficient production of external threads: The stability of the rolling head, which is important for overall process reliability, has been significantly increased by reducing stress peaks. This is made possible by force flow-oriented component structures. This bionic optimization can only be produced using 3D printing (additive manufacturing).


degree of networking

Another component of the innovation strategy is intensive networking between the departments. This includes regular workshops that promote the exchange of knowledge. The research and development departments at the various locations around the world are also constantly exchanging ideas. In addition, the team has a lot of freedom to come up with ideas. Ideas that turn out to be unrealizable are an incentive to develop further ideas. Perseverance often pays off: LMT Tools relies on equipping the smart tools with sensors and digitally transmitting the relevant data - a field with great innovation potential.
