Shear slitting/cutting in a modern industrial environment demands shear knives made from materials other than high-carbon chrome, or knives that have been manufactured to be shock-resistant. In order to remain efficient and profitable in the demanding metal cutting field operators must match the shear knives they use to the correct metal cutting applications.

There are a wide range of shear knives available on the industrial marketing today, allowing cutting machinery owners, with careful selection, to strike the perfect blend between resistance to wear and the level of shock resistance needed to extend the blades’ useful operational lifespan.

Matching the correct knife to the correct application increases profits, productivity and reliability.
