Wide Knife Band

Precision Blades “Wide Band” knife blades are specifically designed for specialty applications, including cutting re-bond, foam, rubber, leather, packaging materials, insulation, carpet re-cycling, textiles, and cork. This blade is the perfect choice for skiving and peeling. . It is highly recommended to use “Wide Band” knife blades with machines that possess continuous sharpening grinding stones to keep blades sharp and maximize blade life.

“Wide Band” knife blades possess a high carbon content mined from European ore. The unique metallurgical structure of our steel is exclusive to Precision Blades, resulting in holding the knife edge longer than other products in the market. Precision Blades pays particular attention to the  “Wide Band” welding process, which insures the weld hardness is the same as the blades hardness. Our welds deliver a strong bond, which withstands higher feed rates and provides extended blade life. The finishing process includes inductive heat tempering, to increase material hardness, then a final polishing process is implemented to insure proper, precise tracking.

There are 3 separate types of “Wide Band” styles:

Precision Track (PT) – Provides minimum deflection and blade movement.

Supreme Track (ST) – Higher degree of tracking, polishing, and specialty weld processing in the finishing process.

Ultra-Supreme Track (UST) – Ultimate tracking/polishing which eliminates deflection and blade movement specifically when cutting very thin material.
