HeliPlan planing cutter Better quality in face-milling of wood derived materials and plastics

Leitz HeliPlan planing cutter
More quality, less chips, shorter cutting time

Disappointing cutting results and poor chip removal during face-milling can have a significant impact on the quality of production processes – for example, when planing slave boards in the Nesting process. With the new HeliPlan planing cutter from Leitz, an almost mark-free surface finish quality can be achieved. Together with efficient chip removal and higher tool speeds, the entire workflow can be optimized. When machining plastics, the HeliPlan planing cutter enables finish cut quality.
