LMT rolls out new threading line

LMT rolls out new threading line

Added to MTDCNC by LMT UK Ltd on 26 November 2014

When the MTDCNC team made its trip to the AMB Show, as always we were on the lookout for an industry perspective and an update on new product lines, something LMT Tools were only too happy to oblige us with...

Firstly, we managed to get a few words from Mr Matthias Rommel, the Managing Director of LMT Tools who told us: “Our customers expect us to take responsibility for the complete machining process. That means we have to guarantee the high performance of our tool solutions and also optimum interaction with machining centres. That is why we are continuing our internationalization strategy and implementing targeted investment in our service network and the expansion of a specialized sales organization, so we can support customers with projects whereby the core competences of LMT Tools play a major overall role.'

 Trying to clarify his point, Mr Rommel explains: 'Gearwheels are the decisive components in automotive transmission systems. As a result, gear cutting is the critical process towards which the entire machining strategy should be oriented. As this business is becoming increasingly international, we are following our customers to their respective markets and expanding our range of on-the-spot support.'

After getting a few words from the LMT hierarchy, MTDCNC was keen to take a look at what was on show. One new product that was being heavily promoted at the AMB Show was the newly developed tool system for thread rolling.

LMT Fette EVOline rolling heads have been specifically designed for the changing production conditions that arise when threads are generally no longer rolled on a separate machine and thread rolling becomes one sub-process in the complete production process on integrated machining centres.

The key feature of the new axial rolling head is its operational safety, flexibility of use and the extremely precise fine adjustment of the workpiece thread. All the components of EVOline rolling heads have been designed to enable operators to carry out swift and error-free assembly.
Thanks to its modular structure, customers can deploy the EVOline rolling head very flexibly. The completely redesigned coupling facilitates the use of a variety of different standard shafts. The connection between coupling and shaft also guarantees precise concentricity with secure torque transmission. A patented system also enables users to precisely adjust the rolling head to an accuracy of 100th of a millimetre. As a result, various settings can be replicated swiftly and safely.
