LFV Technology

New perspectives — by low frequency vibration cutting (LFV).

LFV – standing for „Low Frequency Vibration“ cutting – is a brand-new universally applicable and highly efficient cutting technology which allows for machining almost all part geometries from the most varied materials. Chips are broken up in a controlled way thus eliminating machine stops due to tangled long chips.

Our machines equipped with LFV technology efficiently handle the controlled breaking up of chips when cutting difficult to machine materials thanks to their special control technology. In combination with the basic principle of the GN series, namely “machine construction for high accuracy”, this opens up new opportunities in machining technology. Discover now the „groundbreaking“ new technology.

Citizen LFV Cutting Technology — Reduced Chip Sizes

  • Programmable chip control.
  • Chips are broken up and do not become entangled with the material or tool.
  • Cutting resistance is lowered.
  • Reduce or remove the need for high pressure coolant
  • No built-up edge is formed.
  • The machining temperature doesn’t rise so there is little susceptibility to distortion.
  • Tool life is extended.
  • Very fine cuts are possible.
