Understanding production and manufacturing processes is essential to profitability, and Leitz Tooling brings its depth of knowledge and competence in this field to every customer. 

On stand E800 at this year's W Exhibition, Leitz is bringing new solutions and innovations and W18, and will also be offering specific guidance on individual production issues. 

Managing director Simon Liddell says: “The W exhibitions are a great venue for us to meet with both existing customers and companies seeking advice on productivity issues. 

“Manufacturers large and small are often surprised at the detriment poor or incorrect tooling can have on their machines, and just what a financial drain this can be on their business.  

“Correct, precise, high quality and safe tooling with full local support from Leitz can genuinely increase efficiency and a customers’ profitability.” 

Leitz’s tooling will also be seen in action on the stands of most major machinery manufacturers around the show.

Make energy-rated timber windows – fast and precise

For A+ rated timber window production, Leitz Tooling will feature its ThermoTech Lite Window System; the complete, compliant and scalable system for the manufacture of high quality BFRC energy-rated thermal windows with an ever-growing range of UK-specific design options.

The fastest profile tooling system in the industry

The new Leitz ProfilCut Q Premium is the fastest profile tooling system in the woodworking industry. Conventional systems reach their limit at cutting speeds of 80 to 90 meters (maximum) per second; this new Leitz generation of profile tooling is approved for cutting speeds of up to 120 meters per second. 

Demanding décors? You need EdgeExpert

EdgeExpert tools from Leitz are specialised in sizing panel materials with demanding décors, ensuring tear-free edge quality. EdgeExpert tools work hand-in-hand with laser, plasma or hot air zero-jointing edge technology. 

The tooling cutting geometry is suited for British manufacture and can be sharpened using available standard equipment for diamond tools which Leitz provides through its service centres and Centre of Service Excellence at its UK head office in Harlow. 

EdgeExpert tools also offer exceptional performance times; for example, the Diamaster EdgeExpert router cutters have on average 15 times better performance time in comparison to conventional router cutters. 

Leitz is not only at the forefront of process controlling smart tools, but also smart service concepts. In Germany, LeitzXPress is currently being tested; customer can reach their responsible Leitz service employee at the push of a button. 

Immediately after LeitzXPress is activated, a notification is sent to the consultant who will contact the customer within one hour to answer any questions the customer has about specific tasks, offer solutions to optimise processes, or arrange a site visit. This type of personal customer service is unique in the industry and is coming soon to a machine near you!

Tools – good as new

Leitz believes that when serviced tools leave one of their services stations, they should be ‘as new’. Every Leitz service process has been optimised for original producer quality. Cutting edge service techniques enable Leitz to give like-new performance throughout the lifetime of the tool, and reliable pick-up and delivery is tailored to your needs.

Simon Liddell continues: “We look forward to seeing any company that needs to keep up with market trends, are interested in efficiency savings and not get left behind. Our solutions are straightforward and can enable significant cost savings to your business.” 

All tooling from Leitz is manufactured and safety tested to BS EN847 standards helping to ensure the welfare of your staff, and Leitz welcomes visitors to stand E800 to see some of the latest tooling technology available and bring their tooling troubles for individual consultation and expert advice.
