PowerTec airFace hoggers
"Long-distance runners" with long edge lives

The new version of the established PowerTec hogger allows feed rates of up to 100 m/min for panels with a thickness of at least 8 mm. The edge lives of the new PowerTec airFace could be improved by up to 15 percent thanks to a more advantageous tooth geometry. The body is equipped with the optically distinctive airFace which reduces noise emision.

The body is equipped with the optically distinctive airFace which reduces noise emision.

Thanks to its high productivity and the very long edge lives, the PowerTec is one of the most successful hogger manufactured by LEUCO. The most recent version in the airFace design has an even longer tool life. The constant cutting width and its usability for panel materials with different coatings are further benefits of the PowerTec.

 

Due to the suitability for high feed speeds and the long edge lives, the LEUCO PowerTec is one of the most established tool in the furniture and kitchen design industry. Feed rates up to 100 m/min for panels from a thickness of 8 mm can easily be reached using this hogger. The edge life of the new PowerTec airFace could be improved by up to 15 percent thanks to a more advantageous tooth geometry. This means an even longer service life without tool change and thus a higher productivity.

 

Smooth running thanks to a streamlined design

To improve the noise reduction, the PowerTec is provided with the flow-optimized surface airFace. This design to be recognized by the grooves in the body generates a uniform air flow around the tool. By this, the noise emission is reduced.

 

Another special feature of the PowerTec also optimizes the smooth running. Compared to the usual hoggers, the number of tooth wings is reduced by half. This also means a reduction of the turbulences. This benefit can be achieved through the arrangement of two cutting edges next to each other: a precutting and a finish cutting edge. The noise emissions are not only reduced by the airFace design but also by the reduced number of tooth wings acting on the material.

 

Hogging of laminated panels in a fast and material protecting way

The PowerTec cuts materials with hard coatings and those with sensitive, high-gloss surfaces such as anti-fingerprint designs. Even at high feed rates, a constantly high surface quality can be achieved with this hogger.

 

In addition to these features, the PowerTec users appreciate the constant cutting width which remain the same over the entire life cycle. The cutting edges of many other hoggers become thinner after each sharpening cycle and do no longer reach the initially possible cutting width. The cutting width of the PowerTec airFace remain the same over the entire tool life.

 

 

Premium hoggers PowerTec airFace S

The PowerTec airFace S of LEUCO successfully combines the two typical strengths of the hogger: high cutting speed and long edge life. The PowerTec airFace S is equipped with a high number of cutting edges. By this, it achieves a higher material removal rate compared with the already powerful basic model. Thicker DP cutting edges result in a higher stability of the cutting edges, a reduced susceptibility to wear and longer edge lives.
