we put it to the test
Excellent test results Denitool / u-tec
A well-known European manufacturer of valves, couplings etc. ran comparative tests with the following:
A) Standard Live Tool Unit (LTU) w/ ER coupling and cutter APKT (Competitor)
B) Heimatec LTU w/ u-tec ® and Denitool cutter LTH 3225 w/ SPHW 060204 FN DX50 inserts
Compared to the standard LTU w/ ER coupling, usage of the extremely rigid Heimatec u-tec ® System resulted in a significantly improved surface uality.
The new Denitool SPHW 060204 FN inserts showed an 80% increased tool life, reduced cutting time by 55% and
increased the Qty/cutting edge by 4 times!
Connector, material C 45, dia. 3.74”-> 6flat WS 3.346”, w=0.472”
Due to the excellent results and convinced of the cost-effectiveness (insert w/ 4 cutting edges), it was easy for the customer to sign up for the eneral conversion to the Heimatec u-tec ® solution with Denitool cutters & inserts.
