High-precision face cutting

The primary objective in cylinder processing is to ensure perfect surface qualities. With our face cutting tools you will achieve µ-precise roughnesses in a stable machining process.

More than 25 years ago, our engineering team developed these face cutting tools together with and exclusively for KWalter and Daetwyler for CFM machines. For some years now we have been able to co-operate directly with our customers.

The results are highly precise and durable face cutting tools with highest reproducibility, adapted to the specific requirements in the turning business area.

Diamond tools are our core business.

We have used our long-standing knowledge and experience and have added tools for further machine types to our product range. We continue to develop and optimise these tools:

  • in our programme you will also find high-precision milling cutters for the Polishmaster machine,
  • tools and tool holder for DuoStar and
  • round cutting tools as well as T- and S-cutting tools for Acigraf machines.

If you have further questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Our R&D department will be pleased to work out the specific solution for your application – together with you. In comparison to other tool providers our advantage is our know-how in the diamond tooling sector.

Thanks to the direct proximity to our customers we are able to adapt our tools to their special requests – Made in Germany.

CFM machine

T-cut tools for face cutting – available as resharpenable standard version or one-way tool – both with fitting holder and accessories.

The durable and economic round cutting tool is another innovation of LACH DIAMANT and is offered as an alternative to T-cutting tools. The round cutting tool allows highly efficient usage of 10 cutting “edges”.

Both systems are designed for the processing of copper and chromium. For turning into the steel base of the cylinders, we have developed the Steel Cut insert.
