ProfilCut Q Premium is the quickest profile tooling system

 Leitz, the leading manufacturer of tools for industrial processing of wood, wood derived materials, plastic and compound materials, has the quickest profile tooling system in the industry.

Whereas conventional systems reach their limit at cutting speeds of 80 to 90 metres (maximum) per second, the new generation ProfilCut Q Premium is approved for cutting speeds of 120 metres per second.

This allows users to run higher feed speeds with the same number of teeth, increasing productivity and output. Additionally, the new profile tooling system distinguishes itself in processing quality and performance.

During the development of ProfilCut Q, Leitz paid strict attention to high running accuracy. Together with high speeds this leads to im-proved finish quality.

Knife changes

Leitz engineers also integrated a handling advantage during the development of the new ProfilCut Q Premium. Normally, operators had to remove conventional complex tool sets from the machine and dissemble them before being able to change knives.

With ProfilCut Q Premium the main and secondary knives, such as edge-rounding knives, grooving knives or spurs, can be easily accessed and changed within the tool set. This saves a lot of time.

The option to simply change knives within the set is another USP of ProfilCut Q Premium. 

One reason for superior cutting speed of ProfilCut Q Premium is its newly developed clamping system by which the knives are axially and radially clamped without clearance. The enhanced running accuracy of the new profile tooling system can also be attributed to the clamping system.

Leitz engineers, who worked on this project for two years, realised that profile tools with higher cutting speeds would not be possible with available clamping systems and soon the new clamping system was developed. 


Another contributing factor to ProfilCut Q’s cutting speed is the unique design of the tool body that makes it harder and more wear-resistant. The aluminum body reduces noise by 3 decibels compared to conventional tools, and decreases vibration during operation.

The ProfilCut Q tooling system is universally applicable, especially for production of windows and doors, furniture and flooring, and shows its full potential as the perfect solution for customers using stationary technology and producing high volumes of parts.

In addition to solid wood and wood-derived materials, plastics and special abrasive materials can also be processed.
