Logosol has entered a global sales agreement with Toolbox, a subcontractor for many years.
”The cooperation means that, together with Logosol, we can invest more in product development,” says Toolbox MD, Martin Lindqvist.
Logosol deepens its cooperation with Toolbox and takes over exports. Martin Lindqvist shows a new 120 mm high sidecutter for Logosol’s four-sided planers.
The immediate effect for Logosol’s customers is a significant widening of the range. The companies have cooperated since the mid-1990s, but this related only to cutters and knives for planing machines and moulders.
”We hope to get involved earlier in the development of new machines and contribute our knowledge of woodworking,” says Martin.
Toolbox’s core competence is planing knives. In addition to knives, the company has an effective range of sawblades and shank end mills for fixed tools and dovetailing units. In addition, Toolbox has its own unique product, Safesaw System which changes the angle grinder to a multi-sided tool for woodworking. Toolbox is focusing on Logosol’s planers and joinery machines. This can be seen in the company’s own joinery workshop, where new tools are tested in operation. The machinery is the four-sided planer PH260, the format saw PS315 and the vertical milling machine, MF30.
Shank end Mills
”There is nothing else like the MF30, and it has inspired us to create new tools,” says Martin.
He shows a completely new set of moulders for producing windows in insulating glass. By changing one knife and one counteracting knife, the appearance of the profile is changed. Using a special knife, you can create unique windows as a reasonable cost.
Shank end mills have been a weak area for Logosol. The global sales agreement allows Logosol to offer possibly the widest range on the market. The manufacturer is CMT and any type of shank end mill not in this range is probably very difficult to get hold of.
A real lift
In addition, the agreement means that Logosol can offer high-quality products under our own brand. The name is LOG21 and covers value for money tools for all types of woodwork. Logosol’s CEO Malte Frisk has great hopes for the cooperation:
“This is a lift for our customers and a real step forward in our work to become a comprehensive supplier with unique products for small-scale woodworking”.
