The use of the HSK 32 tool adapter instead of the classic double keyway reduces the radial runout of the LEUCO DIAMAX AirStream jointing cutter from 60 µm to 20 µm.

"Visibly better quality"

 

High-quality store furnishings and interiors are a specialty of Peter Ewert. The optics of the edges produced plays an important role when it comes to their quality. That is why he relies on the LEUCO DIAMAX AirStream jointing cutter with precise HSK 32 tool clamping.

 

For a long time, only jointing units on large machines were equipped with the high-precision HSK tool adapter. Despite this, HOLZ-HER introduced the smaller HSK 32 clamping on its more compact edge banding machines for tradesmen. And now, LEUCO has adapted the DIAMAX AirStream jointing cutter to this interface. The combination of tool and tool adapter achieves a radial runout of at most 20 µm – compared to the 60 µm of a classical double keyway tool adapter.

 

High expectations with HSK clamping

At his specialized plant in Genthin, Saxony-Anhalt, where he produces primarily store furnishings and interiors, Peter Ewert already had good experience with HSK tool adapters in the past. For this reason, he was very interested when he learned about the new development while looking for a new machine at HOLZ-HER. The manufacturer had announced an edge banding machine with HSK 32 tool clamping and a jointing cutter from LEUCO. The reduced radial runout through use of HSK clamping promised an even better appearance at the transition from the edge to the top layer on the workpiece. As a result, Peter Ewert immediately decided to purchase the new machine-jointing cutter combination: "I preferred to have the first new machine rather than the last old one".

 

For Peter Ewert, clean, precisely produced edges are very important – and this is clear from his orders. For instance, he has produced furniture for opticians as well as jewelry and leather goods stores; here, the quality of the stores furnishings must make a good impression.

 

Quality benefits from minimal radial runout

"We are a third-generation family-owned operation. Proper edges on the workpiece were always important for us, as this is the quality characteristic for the customer and what he pays for", explains Peter Ewert. "With the new machine, the quality has become visibly better; rework is not necessary. This saves time and money – jointing panels, producing edges, flush routing, rounding and finished."

 

Production is also cleaner with the LEUCO DIAMAX AirStream. Thanks to the AirStream system, which has been designed specifically to remove chips from the tool area and convey them to the machine extractor, LEUCO and HOLZ-HER have been able to increase the level of chip capture to 97 to 99 %. As a result, most chips are conveyed to the dust extraction and the machine can be cleaned faster after the work has been completed.

 

Furthermore, with its control of the air flow AirStream reduces the noise generated by the jointing cutter. "Our foreman noticed this immediately while passing through production", reports Ewert: "He said that the machines are noticeably quieter."
