About Mastercut

Mastercut Cutting Systems Ltd stocks and manufactures to order a wide range of Industrial Blades and Knives that suit to different machinery.

Over 15 years ago the company introduced EDM technologies in the form of Ona E400 and E900 EDM machines to produce some of the more complex and intricate knife shapes that customers were demanding.

Later we upgraded technology in the form of Accutex AU600i EDM machine which allows greater accuracy at far quicker speeds. In some cases we are now almost three times faster than previously.

This increased our production rate and provided us with extra capacity to take on more value added products. Now we offer our customers the most competitive low prices on the market.

In May 2015 Mastercut Cutting Systems Ltd acquired the assets and business of machine knives division of North Shield Grinding Ltd. This purchase includes replacement blades supply and sharpening services for the companies on the North of England…
