Cutting materials is a very common operation in production processes, often involving materials such as paper, cardboard, aluminum foil, polyprop, and nonwoven fabric. Suffice to say that you want optimal performance from your cutting tools. After all, problems with your industrial knives and rotating cutting tools can lead to failures, machine downtime, production losses, and consequently drive up your costs.
One fine example of a rotating cutting tool is the cutting module used in a coffee pad production line. Wear caused by constant contact with product materials reduces the service life of cutting tools. The solution to this problem is to choose the right material with a surface treatment and high product quality. The end result is a significant increase in the part’s overall service life thanks to repeated reconditioning with constant performance.
