News & Innovations

Katana for CNC circular sawblades for CNC-machining centres

Leitz has developed a solution for many machining problems arising from the use of circular sawblades on CNC machines. The “Katana for CNC” programme demonstrates its strength especially when the saw cut becomes visible on the workpiece. All materials can be processed with one tool and the noise generated by the cutting can be reduced.


  • Shorter production times
  • Excellent cutting results
  • Processing of different materials
  • Reduced noise level


  • Available from stock
  • Diameter 180-350 mm
  • For conventional, CNC machines and aggregates

Bevel cutterhead,swivellingVariable bevel angle in all working materials

Whether industrial or handcrafted production, joining and beveling with different bevel angles always represents one of the central challenges with regard to the given mechanical equipment, the diversity of materials and profiles, quality requirements and market-related flexibility.

The Leitz bevel cutterhead system offers individual advantages for every company size and thus helps to achieve a clear production and quality superiority. The system is not only flexible and sustainable, but also improves production efficiency


  • Perfect cutting results
  • Easy handling
  • Applicable in different materials
  • Significantly less noise
  • Long lifetime

ProfilCut Q PLUS The resharpenable constant tool system

In applications where high running metre performance is required, the use of conventional tool systems can result in high running costs. ProfilCut Q PLUS sustainably reduces production costs with resharpenable, diameter- and profile-constant cutting edges. Especially for machines with high parts output, this system offers more efficiency and productivity while saving resources – and all this in proven Leitz quality. Due to the six tool lives per knife, machining costs are reduced by up to 20 %.


  • 5 times resharpenable
  • Constant profile and diameter after sharpening
  • Shorter machining times with maximum performance
  • Minimization of set-up times


  • ProfilCut Q PLUS for cutting speeds (vc) up to 90 m/s
  • ProfilCut Q PLUS Premium for cutting speeds (vc) up to 120 m/s
  • Light metal tool body
  • Diameter up to 650 mm
  • Suitable for all conventional moulding machines
  • For soft and hard wood, wood derived materials, plastics
