Pelletizer Knives

What are pelletizer knives?

Pelletizer knives cut plastic or other materials into small, uniform pieces known as pellets. It can be used in various industries, including plastics, rubber, and chemical processing. They are used to produce animal feed and recycle materials such as plastics and rubber pellets.

The bodies of pelletizer knives are usually made of high-carbon stainless steel. The cutting edge is typically made of a bi-material such as Nikro-128 due to the high wear resistance needed during the cutting process.

Pelletizer knives or pelletizer blades are used for pelletizing operations. For better quality, the body of pelletizer blades is usually made from high carbon stainless steels, while the cutting is manufactured from bi-metal materials such as Nikro-128 due to the required high wear resistance during the cutting operation.

Besides manufacturing custom size pelletizer knives and pelletizing blades, Baucor stocks a wide array of OEM knives for pelletizer brands including AST, Berringer, Berstorff, Black Clawson, Buss Condux, Conair, Cumberland, Egan, Erema, Farrell, Gala, Ikegai, JSW, Kobe, PTI, Rieter/Automatik, Werner Pfleiderer and many others.

Advantages of using pelletizer knives

There are many advantages of using pelletizer knives:

  • Improved efficiency:
    Pelletizer knives allow for precise and efficient cutting of materials, improving production rates and reducing waste.

  • Better quality:
    The precise cutting action of pelletizer knives can produce a higher quality end product with clean, smooth cuts and fewer defects.

  • Cost savings:
    The longer lifespan of pelletizer knives can result in cost savings in the long run, as there is a reduced need for frequent replacements.

How are pelletizer knives manufactured?

  • Casting:
    The body of the pelletizer knife is usually cast from high-carbon stainless steel using a mold. Melted steel is poured into the mold, solidifying and taking on the body's shape.

  • Machining:
    Once the knife body has been cast, it is machined to its final shape using lathes, mills, and other precision machine tools. This process involves removing material from the surface of the knife to achieve the desired shape and size.

  • Cutting edge
    The pelletizer knife's cutting edge is typically made from a bi-material such as Nikro-128, a combination of two materials that have been welded or brazed together. This material is chosen for its high wear resistance and ability to retain a sharp edge.

  • Sharpening:
    Next, the cutting edge is sharpened and undergoes a grinding process to make it even sharper.

  • Coating:
    Finally, the pelletizer knife is coated with tungsten or chromium to increase its lifespan. The coating improves the blade's resistance to wear and corrosion.
