Score Slitter Blades

SCORE SLITTER BLADES
MADE TO PERFORM PRECISELY

What are scoring blades?

Scoring blades, also known as creasing blades, are used to create a shallow cut or indentation in a material. The purpose of a scoring blade is to weaken the material along a specific line, making it easier to fold or bend along that line without tearing or damaging the material.

Scoring blades are typically circular blades made of high-carbon steel. They are commonly used in the printing and packaging industry to create precise, clean folds in thin materials such as paper and cardboard products, such as boxes, cartons, and brochures.

If precision, quality and short lead time all matter, you are at the right place. Baucor manufactures and supplies literally thousands of both precision standard and custom size score slitter knives and blades for all kinds of use. Whether it's paper cutting, packaging, rubber converting, film cutting or foil converting, regardless of what it's used for, our score slitter knives and blades are exceptionally made from quality ground hardened tool steels and stainless steel as well as carbide.

Advantages of using scoring blades

There are many advantages of using scoring blades:

  • Improved accuracy:
    Scoring blades allow you to make precise, clean cuts or scores in a material, which can help create precise folds or creases.

  • Easier folding:
    Scoring a material before folding it can make the folding process easier.

  • Increased efficiency:
    Scoring blades can help speed up the cutting or folding process.

How are scoring blades manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    The manufacturing process of a scoring blade starts with cutting the blade's shape off a sheet metal using a CNC machine.

  • Heating:
    Next, the blade undergoes a series of heat treatment processes to make it more rigid. Heat treatment involves heating the blade and cooling it rapidly.

  • Sharpening:
    After the heat treatment, the blade is sharpened to remove any imperfections, and we use a grinding process to refine its edge and make it even sharper.

  • Coating:
    The blade tips can be coated to improve their resistance to wear or corrosion. The most used materials for coating are chromium or tungsten.
