Low Frequency Vibration (LFV) is a cutting technology from Marubeni Citizen-Cincom that is designed to avoid the problem of spiraling chips, entanglement of chips and built-up edges. In LFV cutting, “air cutting” time prevents the machining temperature from rising, which prolongs tool life and gives relief from various problems caused by chips.

Available on the company’s machines, this technology can handle a range of machining shapes and materials and is especially suitable for cutting difficult materials while delivering increased throughput and improved part accuracy, according to the company. Additional benefits include increased cutting tool life, reduced heat generation and reduced power consumption.
