Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service
Paper Cutting Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service and Metal Cutting Guillotine Blade Regrinding, and Repair Services are performed at the company facilities.
- Paper cutting guillotine blade sharpening service is performed on the bevelling machine first and then completed with a hand polishing to mirror finish
- Metal cutting guillotine shear blade sharpening service is always performed on the company’s grinding machines
The bevelling machine accurately removes all damage and grooves from a paper cutting guillotine blade during the first stage of the sharpening process. Due to our extended database of bevels for various paper cutting guillotine blades our masters are very precise at this stage of the sharpening service. The exact positioning of the grinder enables us to take off only irregular blade areas of less than half a millimeter (even less for tungsten carbide blades), leaving almost the same thickness of the guillotine blade after the sharpening service to sustain many more sharpening cycles.
To remove the burr after machine grinding the ‘oil stone’ is used. This stage of hand sharpening service is applied only to Standard Steel and HSS guillotine blades, as Tungsten Carbide Blades come very sharp after the machine sharpening.
At the next stage of guillotine blade sharpening, a honing machine with 5 very fine grinding wheels is applied. Though a knife honing is an essential step it will not repair even the smallest chip. Honing is used to improve the geometry and texture of a surface.
Finally, we check any invisible chips in the ready sharpened guillotine blade with a light paper.
