What are custom blades?

Custom blades are specialized cutting tools designed to meet the specific needs of an application. 

We offer custom blades that can be used in several industries, such as:

  • Packaging
  • Paper and cardboard cutting
  • Food processing such as meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and fruits
  • Plastic and rubber industry, such as tire cutting and recycling
  • Metalworking
  • Medical and pharmaceutical
  • Textile 

Our blades are made from high-quality materials that can be customized to meet your needs.

Custom industrial blades or custom machine knives are cutting tool types that are manufactured to exact customer specifications by  Baucor. In order to manufacture correct custom industrial blades and machine knives, it is important to help customers with design of the blade, prototyping, defining dimensional tolerance, as well as material selection depending on the cutting application.

Advantages of using custom blades

There are many advantages of using custom blades:

  • Improved precision:
    Custom blades can be designed and manufactured to meet precise specifications, improving cutting precision in your processes. It is crucial in cutting applications where close tolerances are required, such as cutting precise shapes in medical or aerospace or delicate materials in the textile or food processing industry.

  • Enhanced performance:
    Custom blades are designed to optimize performance, increasing productivity and reducing downtime. For example, a custom blade with a unique design or treatment can cut more efficiently than an off-the-shelf blades.

  • Increased durability:
    Custom blades can be made from high-quality materials explicitly chosen to withstand a specific work environment. Choosing a custom material and treatment can increase a blade's lifespan and help reduce maintenance costs.

  • Reduced cost:
    Custom blades can be more cost-effective than standard ones, especially in the long term, due to their increased durability and efficiency. For example, using a not well-suited blade may shorten its lifespan and reduce productivity, increasing the project cost. A custom blade has a longer lifespan and increased productivity, saving you money in the long run.

  • Increased safety:
    Custom blades are designed with convenient safety features for your applications, such as reduced vibration, improved ergonomics, and improved guarding, leading to a safer work environment. For example, a custom blade may be designed with a lower profile to reduce the risk of accidents.

How are custom blades manufactured?

  • Designing:
    The first step is to design the blade according to the client's specific need, which is done using CAD (computer-aided design) software. This step is essential because it ensures that the blade meets the client's needs. 

  • Cutting:
    After the blade has been designed, it is sent to a CNC (computer numeric control) machine, which cuts the blade's blank to the desired specifications.

  • Heating:
    Next, the blade is put through a heat treatment process to harden the metal and make it more durable. This process involves heating the metal to a high temperature and cooling it quickly. It helps to improve the strength and hardness of the metal so that it can better withstand wear and tear.

  • Sharpening:
    Once the blade's blank is heat-treated, it is sharpened to remove any imperfections. And it undergoes a grinding process to refine and make the blade sharper. 

  • Coating:
    Finally, the blade tips are coated to improve their resistance to wear and corrosion. The most used materials for coating are chromium and tungsten.
