Leitz Tooling for Joinery Production

Leitz Tooling UK ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Leitz GmbH, Germany. Throughout the 142 year history of Leitz, the motivations have not changed.

Leitz key focuses are increasing efficiency, reducing downtime, saving energy, decreasing production costs, reducing noise, saving material, increasing process safety, increasing quality, reducing set-up times and protecting the environment.

Many innovations have been developed by Leitz over the years which have helped realise these motivations.

Hydro clamping, heat shrink clamping, cutting tool material development in carbide, diamond and coatings, electronic tool chips to name a few. Leitz invented the first window tooling in a cutter head design back in 1921.

Leitz has developed tooling to manufacture the complete Lignum Window & Door System. Our highly efficient tooling combined with the well designed Lignum system is a cost effective solution for joinery companies looking to expand production of windows and doors.

Joiners can manufacture high quality, PAS24 certified wooden flush casement windows, traditional box sash windows, bifold doors and open in/open out single or French doors using traditional wood working and CNC machinery. 

The tools are designed to achieve short set-up times with user-friendly knife changes due to automatic knife adjustment to give perfect repeatability after every knife change.
