Tool solutions for machining aluminium composite panels

Flexible, productive and efficient

In architecture, industry and vehicle construction, aluminium composite panels are often used. Special requirements are placed on the stability and formability of construction elements, on the durability of surfaces and on weight reduction. Panels of the most varied shape, sizes and textures are used, which can make the processing of these materials a real challenge.

The Leitz tool range for machining aluminium composite panels delivers with its versatility as well as its high quality and performance.

Cut by cut to the finished part

Whether shank cutter or circular sawblade – depending on the production quantity and degree of individualization, the user can decide which is the optimum machining method on CNC machining centres.

With its wide product range, Leitz offers solutions for both processes that deliver through quality, performance and productivity.


V-groove cutting on CNC machining centres

Perfect folding edges are the be-all and end-all

When it comes to shape, aluminium composite panels can be very flexible. Perfect appearance requires a defined folding edge. A perfect V-groove is required to ensure that the aluminium composite panels can be chamfered and folded safely without errors. Here, the innovation is in the detail of the groove design and the tool.


“Thumbs up” says Yasar Tikves, when reporting on the saw cut of his Leitz circular sawblade. The cutting result is perfect despite the small overcut by the material. “My customers can’t believe it. The feel of the the cutting edge of the aluminium composite panel and the grooves of the support panel really convinced them.” said Tikves.
