Processing slot & tenon profile with Leitz cutting technology “RipTec”.
The combination of ProfilCut and turnblade tooling systems give economical window production.
Thermal engineering and noise protection
Triple glazed heat and noise insulated units of up to 40 mm can be fitted as standard in the IV78. The best thermal transmittance value for a wood thickness of 90 mm is Uw 0,76 W/m2K.
Increasing the distance between the weathered area and the first seal improves protection against driving rain. Increased wood thickness plus the 13 mm hinge increase safety.
Same slot & tenon joints
Using the same slot and tenon joint in the frame and sash reduces the number of components, gives a slimmer look with fewer drainage holes; the modular construction reduce manufacturing costs.
The same clamping system for ProfilCut and standard turnblades from Leitz ensures easy and safe handling, the best surface quality and knife economy.
RipTec is a Leitz innovation. Using RipTec cross grain reduces break out by optimising the chip that is easy on the material. Another significant benefit of ripple technology is the glue “seals” the end grain and strengthens the joint, so adding to the strength of the assembled wooden window. The run time of RipTec tools is between 20 to 30% above that of standard tools.
MultiTool as a modular system
Leitz MultiTool allows production of modern window technology with the minimum tooling. Production is from modular components and complete tool sets in single step operation.
Leitz offers partnership and market leading tooling knowledge and technology offering 3 elements for your success:
Today a window as a construction element is not just about the specifications. The international standards a window has to meet are even more important. Such requirements are defined in EN 14351-1. In future, the CE sign will show a window complies with all the criteria for the intended use. The international standards control the standards for window construction. Leitz knows what is important and will advise and support you in selecting the best tooling solution.
