LMT Presents New Technologies at Emo Hannover
August 22, 2011
The LMT Group will be presenting a large number of technological innovations at this year's EMO fair. SpeedCore is a new generation hob whose intermetallic cutting material enables significantly higher cutting speeds than conventional PM-HSS substrates. The result is a 30 to 50 percent increase in productivity simply by changing hobs, according to the company. LMT is also presenting a new cutting material that has been specially developed by its alliance partner Boehlerit for milling applications. Nanosilver, a nanostructured coating, has been applied to three new carbide substrates. The new TeraSpeed coating substantially improves the performance of LMT indexable inserts. The aluminium titanium nitride coating system offers a high level of thermal resistance of up to 1,100 degrees Celsius - 200 degrees higher than comparable coatings. The XChange threading tap combines the advantages of carbide and high-speed steel: equipped for internal cooling, the tool is capable of twice the cutting speed of a conventional HSS tap. LMT is presenting a coating for thread rollers in the shape of Protec, an innovation that will expand the range of thread-rolling applications. The elastic and flexible thin-film coating has been specially designed for processing hard materials and increases tool life by up to 30 percent. In addition, LMT is pooling more than 50 years of experience in the machining of composite materials as part of its Composite Excellence initiative. Additional products, such as new tools for die and mold making, will also celebrate their world premieres at EMO.
