With Cutting 2.0 AKE „re-invents“ sawing
It is the revolutionary approach to the mode of cutting that makes Cutting 2.0 so very special. All relevant products, whether the SuperSilent and the Panel Saw 2.0 or the cutting tools Z3 and Harmony, have one thing in common: The applied cutting methods are completely different. To this end the tool design had been revised fundamentally in order to avoid multiple chipping. In doing so we have always one end in mind: Creating unique advantages for our customers.
AKE Innovation - Cutting 2.0
When a tool is created at AKE its complete history can be traced at our plant, from raw material to high-tech tool. We do hold our quality „in our hands“ in the true sense of the word and are thus in the position to offer unique solutions to our customers thanks to a special team of application engineers, if the high standards we set should be insufficient.
SuperSilent – a revolution in saw blade technology
AKE revolutionised sawing back in 2013 with a completely innovative product design. It lacked several conventional elements of traditional saws, such as large chip gullets or relatively wide basic body and tooth shapes.
The SuperSilent is the first tool to use the innovative Cutting 2.0
principle: Less wasted material, with longer tool life and incredibly
Cutting 2.0 technology has proven to be extremely successful since being introduced to the market in 2013. From its origins in the SuperSilent sliding table saw with manual feed, it has been consistently developed and expanded, starting with the cutter range and now moving on to panel saws with mechanical feed. In the meantime, significant practical experience has been collected which has caused users to take notice of these developments.
The cutting 2.0 success story began four years ago when the SuperSilent saw blade was presented at LIGNA 2013. A revolutionary saw blade for sliding table saws with manual feed. The new technology has won innovation and design prizes by fundamentally reinventing a process which is as long-established as sawing. The advantages for users are nothing short of sensational. Just two years later, AKE took the unprecedented step of applying this concept to milling tools. The diamond-based 2.0 technology is impressive for grooving, joining and rebating tasks. Milling 2.0 means that chips are discharged behind the cutting edge. During machining, this considerably reduces the need to carry out repeated chip cutting and results in a noticeably longer tool life. This is supplemented by further advantages since, in contrast to conventional technology on the market, negative and positive milling cutters are no longer required. The AKE-Z3 can cope with these tasks on its own.
Last year, AKE presented the panel sizing saw blade 2.0 for machines with mechanical feed at the "Holzhandwerk" trade fair for woodworking. Customers' experiences with this new saw blade have been purely positive. In the field test performed in various industrial companies throughout Europe, tool life increases of up to 70% were achieved. The finished cutting quality was rated either "very good" or "good" by all testers. Noise emissions were reduced by 10 dB (A), which corresponds to a noise reduction of 50%. The same saw blade was able to cut through a mixture of materials, including chipboard, MDF, plywood and HPL, just as reliably and cleanly as it would cut any material in individual machining.
