Get A Quote On Crush Cutters

Crush cutting knives are blades that cut through a material using pure force. When they only partially penetrate the material, rather than cutting completely through, they are called score cut knives.

They work by combining a knife in a pneumatic blade holder with a hardened anvil roll. You push the material you are trying to cut through the mechanism, and the blade cuts the material as it passes through. Crush cutting knife blades are more rounded than a typical razor-sharp cutting blade because the crushing action of the mechanism would quickly damage a thin, sharp knife.

Many industrial operations like crush cutting knives because they are inexpensive and easy to use relative to shear slitting mechanisms. They are effectively like taking a large pair of scissors to the material you are trying to cut. While crush cutting knives can cut through a wide range of material, even very dense material, they are not as effective for high-speed operations.

We can manufacture a variety of crush cutting knife types to suit the specific type of cut your business needs. We can vary your crush cutting knife blades according to both cut (length of tooth) and tie (distance between teeth). We can create specialty cutting designs like zip wheels, pinking wheels or scallop wheels. We can also adjust the knife holding design to your specifications.

Common Applications for Crush Cutting/Score Cutting Blades

Crush cutting blades are perfect for cutting paper pressure-sensitive tapes, especially when using a heated knife. They are well-suited to cutting film materials in a variety of thicknesses, especially heavier ones like polyester, foil, paper and laminates. Crush cutting is also quite effective for tougher materials like sandpaper or rubber.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I just wanted to pass along some good news to you and a big “thank you”. We were recently able to test the knife that you supplied us for our “hard-to-cut” material. The “puncture and tear” method that works with other materials would not work with this material.  We had to have a complete cut and this knife provided exactly what we needed without making any machine modifications.  Thank you for all of your time and assistance with this project.
