Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service

We perform Metal and Paper cutting Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service at our facilities.

  • metal cutting guillotine shear blade sharpening service is completed on the company’s grinding machines (to read more please follow the link).
  • we start paper cutting guillotine blade sharpening service on a bevelling machine initially. Later, we complete this sharpening service by hand polishing the blade to a mirror finish

During the first stage, our mechanics accurately remove all damage and grooves from a paper cutting guillotine blade. We have an extended database of paper cutting guillotine blade bevels, thus ensuring the required and precise positioning of the blade throughout the sharpening service. This enables us to take off only irregular areas (less than half of a millimeter or even less for tungsten carbide blades). Hence after the sharpening service, a guillotine blade has almost the same thickness and can sustain more sharpening cycles.

Then, to remove burr after machine grinding we use ‘oil stone’. We apply that stage only to Standard Steel and HSS guillotine blades. In general, we noticed, that Tungsten Carbide Blades are very sharp immediately after machine sharpening.

However, even the blade is sharp, it can feel dull because the sharp edge has been pushed off to the side. To improve the geometry and texture of a surface we hone guillotine blades. To do this, we use a honing machine with 5 very fine grinding wheels. It is important, that though a knife honing is an essential step, it will not repair even the smallest chip.

Finally, we check any invisible chips in the ready sharpened guillotine blade with a light paper.
