Cutting 2.0 – A real success story
Forget everything you so far knew about chipping!
Ever since the invention of chipping the underlying theory had not changed. It is generally taken for granted that the edge of a tooth produces chips. This chip is guided into the gullet in front of the tooth, kept there and ejected after the tooth has left the workpiece – ideally into the dust extraction system.
This principle had never been questioned – until AKE presented a world first on the occasion of the Ligna 2013 in Hanover, winning the Innovation Award.
The traditional, classic line of thinking strictly proceeds on the assumption that each chip, produced by a tip, is guided into the gullet in front of the tooth and ejected after the tooth has left the workpiece. AKE did question this dogma and arrived at most interesting findings, which eventually gave rise to a new generation of saw blades, such as the SuperSilent.
What makes Cutting 2.0 particularly special is the groundbreaking approach to the mode of chipping. This applies to the circular saws, such as the SuperSilent as well as to the recently developed milling cutters for manual and mechanic feed. All products have one thing in common: The mode of chipping is completely different. The gullets had been re-positioned for this purpose, guiding away the chips in such a way, that multiple chipping is avoided. The cutting quality is tremendously improved thereby.
