The CERATIZIT Group has brought together four of the World’s leading competence brands – Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT, KOMET, WNT and KLENK which forms the new TEAM CUTTING TOOLS as a global full solution supplier within the cutting industry. For the first time, the TEAM CUTTING TOOLS introduced itself explicit to the aerospace industry with its innovative tooling solutions at the International Air Show in Paris last June.
The CERATIZIT Group, now employing more than 9000 people across the world, presents itself after the integration of the German precision tool manufacturer KOMET with its new and dynamic structure at the Air Show. Also represented is the competence brand KLENK as part of the new TEAM CUTTING TOOLS. KLENK is primarily focussed on the aerospace sector and a well-known name within this industry. Many of its products are custom-designed for individual customer needs where it applies its specific knowledge of machining materials such as carbon fibre, titanium, aluminium and steel.
Economical precision cutting of Titan components
At the Air Show in Paris CERATIZIT provides the visitors an insight into a specific product range which is an important part of the latest cutting solutions in the aerospace sector. One of these solutions is the optimized milling tool MaxiMill211 – K, especially suitable for production requirements in the aerospace industry. The perfect mixture out of diverse parameter bring a high-performance system about. The tight-fitting inserts ensure a clean cut and permit high cutting rates as well as the applicable tool holder diameter which offers top stability. A maximum of process reliability and quality is guaranteed through an integrated chip space for an optimal chip clearance.
Benchmark in Titanium machining
The CERATIZIT Group sets benchmarks within titanium machining with its insert grade CTC5240 concerning tool life and chip removal rate. This cutting material combines the features of a fine-grained carbide and a hardwearing CVD coating and withstands highly abrasive materials even with a cutting speed of 60m/min. The secret lies in the highly viscous base substrate which guarantees, in combination with a thin PVD layer, a good ratio between abrasion and tool life.
The full-range provider of high-quality precision cutting tools
The Ceratizit Group is world-renowned for the development of innovative cutting tool solutions that keep its customers ahead of the competition. Bringing these four competence brands together under the single umbrella of the Ceratizit Group it will deliver significant advantages to customers. They will benefit from a highly attractive, integrated range of services; one of the most extensive on the market. “Highly efficient sales, leading expertise in future technologies (from digitisation to nanotechnology), and many years of in-depth experience in the industry – all in one place”, said Jean-Charles Montero, Managing Director CERATIZIT France.
