Based on the cutting characteristics of the material being processed, we carefully balance metallurgical composition, hardness and blade geometry. Special carbon steel, tool steel, high carbon/high chrome, high-speed steel, powdered metals or ceramic material grades are performance matched to your cutting application. Through our advanced metallurgy, the shock and wear resistance qualities in our knives give you exceptional value when granulating or pelletizing contaminated or filled materials. They are heat treated under sophisticated temperature controls to assure consistent and uniform hardness. In our specialized heat treating process, multiple tempering produces a tougher knife without compromising desired hardness levels.
Tooth profiles are precision form ground and finished to single digit RA surface finish values. Consistent size and burr-free cutting edges provide high quality, clean cutting performance for all types of packaging materials.
