LMT Fette thread rolling systems & precision cutting tools distributed by ISMS: die heads, rolls, taps & more.LMT Fette      LMT FETTE (Germany) is the world's leading manufacturer of precision cutting tools, gear hobs, thread rolling systems and tap drills.

About LMT Fette: 
Fette was founded in 1908 by toolmaker Wilhelm Fette, and about 1100 people now work at its main base at Schwarzenbek near Hamburg, Germany. Fette made the first gear hob as early as 1916, and the company is still today the world's leader in this field. Together with other tool manufacturers, Wilhem Fette founded the German Precision Tool Association (Deutscher Präzisionswerkzeugverband) in 1917. Setting up the first high-speed steel tempering shops in the middle of the 1930s laid the foundations for the development of a comprehensive range of extremely high-performance tools. In the 1950s, Fette presented a new generation of patented thread rolling heads for the first time, with which threads could be manufactured without cutting. Since then, the company has driven the development of metal machining forwards through large numbers of innovative tools, cutting materials and coating systems. Fette's range of products now comprises a wide spectrum of precision tools for both cutting and chipless metal machining. Fette is a founding member of LMT, which was created in 1993, and serves within the group as the competence center for the tooth cutting and rolling fields, as well as for milling.

About LMT Bilz:  The story of the company, which is based at Ostfildern near Stuttgart, began in 1919. Together with his father, the company's founder, Otto Bilz made machine parts and other equipment for both Daimler Benz and Robert Bosch in his cellar. As early as 1924, Bilz was using reversing gear technology to tap threads – a principle on which modern thread tapping equipment is still based. There was another breakthrough in 1950: Otto Bilz invented the world's first quick-change chuck for multi-spindle machines and transfer lines. In 1999, the company first introduced a system for clamping tools of every kind: ThermoGrip, a thermal shrink chucking system that makes it possible to change tools within a few seconds, and which has now become established as a standard.
