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

Insufficient cutting results and poor chip removal during face-milling can have a significant impact on the quality of production processes – for example, when planing support panels in the Nesting process.

With the new HeliPlan planing cutter from Leitz, an almost mark-free finish quality can be achieved. Together with efficient chip removal and higher tool feeds, the entire workflow is optimized. When machining plastics, the HeliPlan planing cutter enables surfaces in finish quality.
