Turning Lach Diamant celebrates 100th anniversary at AMB with special exhibits
At AMB in Stuttgart, Germany, from 13th to 17th September, Lach Diamant will be presenting its top performers for turning hardened steels and aluminium.
It was a quantum leap in the development of machining technology worldwide when General Electric first offered polycrystalline diamond cutting edges in 1973, followed 1975 by CBN boron nitride cutting edges for machining non-ferrous metals — primarily aluminium — and hardened steels. Lach Diamant has been involved for almost fifty years in its now 100-year history. Many patents bear witness to this until today.
In a special show at the AMB in Stuttgart, the company will not only celebrate its 100th anniversary, bu also present two products that have proven themselves in mass production: the IC-plus PCD chip breaker for the process-safe turning of aluminium and the CBN-DUO-power CBN inserts for the finish turning of high-alloy hardened steels and grey cast iron.
