Why Sharpening Your Industrial Blades Will Reduce Your Costs

7/16/2019
Industrial blades, especially core cutters, slitters, and razor blades, perform best when they are as sharp and precise as possible. In order to achieve the sharpest material cut, blade manufacturers use a variety of processes and sharpening techniques. 
 

Blade Sharpening Techniques by Application

Sharpening techniques vary for each type of blade application and depends greatly on the application and material the blade is used for. Core cutters and slitters, like the blades for Parkinson Technology’s Dusenbery equipment, are designed for converting, film, nonwovens, paper, laminate, foam, rubber, textiles, pressure sensitive tape, label stock and specialty materials industries. These types of circular blades vary in outer blade diameter, inner blade diameter, blade thickness and sharpness, and in specific cutting angle specifications. 

Over time and after many uses, industrial blades, slitters, and cutters can begin to dull and become less efficient than they were when they were new. This can make your production slower, final products much less precise and accurate, and lead to high production costs due to waste or improper specifications. While replacing blades is costly, dull blades that do not perform well is also costly.
