IKS specializes in the manufacturing of Jumbo Roll Tissue (JRT) and Towel Log Saws in a variety of standard and custom sizes. All JRT blades are crafted from high alloy D-2 steel, adhere to rigorous quality guidelines, and maintain a maximum lateral run out of .006”. In addition, we offer a patented Nickel Boron plating that greatly increases the amount of cuts each blade is capable of making while vastly improving cut quality.

Dedication to Quality Manufacturing

BentonHenry140924x MG 4902Our saw smiths follow a very specific processes to ensure customers receive the absolute best blades possible with every order:

  • Each blade undergoes a controlled triple tempering heat treating process to ensure uniform blade hardness and flatness 
  • Blades undergo grinding/beveling operations at close tolerance to obtain precise run out and exact parallelism.
  • Saw smiths perform tension and axial run out tests on each blade, with a guaranteed maximum lateral run out of .006” T.I.R (exceeding industry standards while greatly prolonging blade life).

Once each blade has met the stringent quality requirements of our expert saw smiths, it is packaged with a final inspection certificate verifying its quality and is then shipped to the customer.
