Actual: 2015 expension of the Solingen plant by addinf another 800sqm of factory space
Stock company: 2000 - the company is converted to an AG (company limited by shares)
Movement: 1987 - the company moves to new premises with 11,000 sqm of factory space
Machine Blades: In the 1970s, the company begins to focus on machine knives for European industries (food processing, packaging, plastics, textiles, fibres)
Special-purpose Blades: In the 1960s, the manufacturing programme is expanded to include special-purpose cutters and blades for industry
Productrange improvement: in the 1950s, production of specialist blades for the trades and DIY work is added to supplement razor blade manufacture

Production Process

Strip steel
Strip steel as a raw material
  • Strip steel as a raw material
  • Incoming goods controls: surface, edge quality, straightness, metallurgy
  • Blanking the outline conture, punching rated breakpoints and text markings
  • Process: Hardening – Quenching – Deep freezing – Tempering – Quenching
  • Continuous process monitoring of hardness and warping
  • Repeated inspections of molecular structure in metallurgy laboratory
  • If necessary, additional surface treatments after hardening (lacquer, etching, polishing)
  1. Strip grinding: straight grind along the upper edge.
  2. Hook grinding: plunge grinding for concave and convex shapes,
  3. 3-Hole grinding: Grinding of the upper and lower edges of the blades on conveyor belts
Snap-off / separating
Snap-off / separating
  • The precise notching of the rated breakpoint is decisive for the snap-off process
Molecular structure and cutting analysis
Molecular structure and cutting analysis
  • Continuous quality inspections at all production stages to prevent cumulative defects
  • Analyses of the molecular structure and cutting behaviour guarantee our high quality demands
  • Multistage packaging for optimum preservation and safty during transportation

Optimum coating leads to decisive cost advantages
thanks to long service lives!

The optimum coating depends on the precise application of the blades. The cutting forces in the process and chemical influences are critical aspects. We will be pleased to advise you on the best possible surface treatment.


We differentiate between the following coatings for our blades

  1. Coating of the cutting edge: primarily as protection against wear such as ab rasion, chemical wear; additional improvement of the tribological characteris tics
  2. All-over coating: protection against wear and reduction of cut-off adhesion


We prefer the following coating methods

PVD (physical vapour deposition) - TiN, TiCN, AlTiN, DLC, Eternity:

Special - Teflon PTFE
