Innovations by Leitz
Many innovations have been developed by Leitz over the years which have helped realise these motivations.
Hydro clamping, heat shrink clamping, cutting tool material development in carbide, diamond and coatings, electronic tool chips to name a few. Leitz invented the first window tooling in a cutter head design back in 1921.
The Leitz Thermotech system allows our customers who manufacture or install wooden windows to produce a high quality storm proof and flush casement window on traditional wood working and CNC machines.
The tools are designed to achieve short set-up times with user friendly knife changes due to automatic knife adjustment to give perfect repeatability after every knife change.
