Leitz Tooling at W14

27th October 2014

Leitz Tooling (UK) reports a full stand throughout the duration of the recent four-day long W14 exhibition. “It was a great experience,” said Leitz sales manager Brian Maddox. “We had a huge range of conversations from most manufacturing sectors. Our stand gave visitors the chance to chat and find out how unique tooling solutions can improve productivity by improving performance, improving finish, and reducing sanding, set up and downtimes.” Leitz’s tooling was seen in action on the stands of many leading machinery around the show.

Mr Maddox explained that many of the conversations had indicated that tooling customers are becoming very aware of the impact of buying ‘cheap’ tooling, without adequate back up, testing, traceability and support. “If something does go wrong, who will be responsible? Tooling has a vital effect on the specification of machines and customers are realising it is a huge advantage to speak with us first, when they are looking to invest”, he said. “It does not cost to do so. It’s simple - the product needs to be machined by the tools, and in some cases the tools need to set the specification for the machine. Tool positions, weights, RPM capabilities and clamping arrangements for tooling can have an effect.”

Leitz Tooling also saw strong interest in their ThermoTech Window System. Mr Maddox continued, “We also offer the BRFC licences and, through our cooperation with other leading companies, the contacts and resources for almost the full production requirements of an A rated timber window.”

Leitz’s ThermoTech Window System is a complete, compliant and scalable system for the manufacture of high quality ‘A’ rated thermal windows achievable by both small and large manufacturers alike. Licences for 18 different variations of energy rated timber window manufacture can be obtained from the BFRC through Leitz by any company using the ThermoTech Window System stack tooling, and incentives are available on the first year of BFRC window licences for new purchases of the system.

All tooling from Leitz is manufactured and safety tested to BS EN847 standards helping to ensure the welfare of your staff.
