Guillotine Blades and Trimmer Knives

Guillotine Blades and Trimmer Knives for the print industry are among our best-selling knives and blades. We supply a wide range of blades made of different steel grades. They are applicable to different cutting applications.

  • Guillotine blades made of Standard steel usually start with very small not easily noticed chipping. It is possible to carry on using them but the outcome won’t be as sharp and clean as before.
  • HSS steel blades are more resistant to chipping than blades made of standard steel. They might even cut through staples and lighter inclusions without being damaged.
  • Tungsten carbide tipped blades are more brittle, that is why when they chip off it is easy to spot. These blades cannot be used until the next sharpening service. However, there are plenty of advantages of using tungsten carbide tipped blades.

The most common cutting materials used in printing are paper, paperboard and cardboard. Such cutting materials are categorized as soft, normal and hard. When using blades designed for soft and normal cutting materials on hard surfaces the blades will quickly wear out and become blunt. The main reason for this is that hard cutting materials display great resistance during cutting. That is why we manufacture custom-designed replacement guillotine blades from different steel grades. Being blades manufacturer and supplier we offer a wide range of drawings.
