Film Cutting Blades

What are film-cutting blades?

A film-cutting blade is a particular type designed specifically for cutting film. Film-cutting blades are used in various applications, including cutting photographic film, motion picture film, and magnet tape.

Film-cutting blades can be made from various materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, and tungsten carbide, and are designed to be sharp and durable to ensure precise cuts and long service life.

Whether you slit, cut, rewind, cut off or perforate film and/or foil, Baucor manufactures and supplies the right cutting blade for your film & foil converting applications. Some of our packaging knife applications include perforating, guillotine cut, rewinding and cut off. Our machine knives and industrial blades for film & foil conversion are in straight, circular, pointed tip, toothed, serrated, scalloped, perforated and many other shapes.

Advantages of using film cutting blades

There are many advantages of using film-cutting blades:

  • Precision:
    Film-cutting blades offer a high level of control and precision, making achieving the desired cutting results easy. 

  • Durability:
    Film-cutting blades are made of high-quality materials resistant to wear and tear, meaning they can last for a long time with proper maintenance and handling.

  • Customization:
    Film-cutting blades are highly customizable to meet the specific needs of different film-cutting applications, such as cutting, scoring, perforating, and more.

  • Clean cuts:
    Film-cutting blades offer a much smoother cut than traditional rotary blades, resulting in less wear and tear on your machine

How are film-cutting blades manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    The first step in the manufacturing process is to use a CNC machine to cut the blade to the desired shape.

  • Heating:
    Next, the blade is put through a heat treatment process to harden the metal and makes it more durable.

  • Sharpening:
    After heating, the blade is sharpened to remove any imperfections. A grinding process is then used to refine and make the blade sharper. 

  • Coating:
    By coating the tips of blades with these metals, the blade can better withstand wear and tear. It can prolong the blade's lifespan.
