Blunt segments on the jointing cutter SmartJointer by LEUCO can be replaced with sharp ones directly by the user. By this, the tool is available again within the shortest time.

 

The exchangeable knives of the SmartJointer offer the wood-processing companies the highest degree of flexibility. The segments of the tool can be exchanged quickly and easily. The precise positioning guarantee a constantly high milling accuracy. Due to its highly constant diameter, the SmartJointer can be used immediately after segment replacement without machine adjustment. The replacement of the edges on site also reduces the purchase costs since the user only have to buy one tool or one set of tools per machine.

 

Just a few easy steps, no special qualification required

The replacement is extremely simple. First the milling tool is cleaned with compressed air and a cleaning spray. The screws of the segments can be unscrewed using an allen key. The use of a torque wrench is sufficient to tighten the inserted screws. Thanks to the 3-point support, the position of the segments on the tool body is exactly predefined. A subsequent balancing of the tool is therefore not required.

 

Cutting edge and gullet are replaced together
The cutting edges and the gullets are the parts of the milling tool that are most susceptible to wear. Since the edge and the gullet susceptible to wear of the SmartJointer form one constructive unit, they are replaced together. The benefits: Due to the high repeatability of the two elements, the processing quality can be guaranteed in a sustainable manner Furthermore, the weight-saving tool body made of aluminum is almost wear-free. That means that is has a long service life.
