Akron Standard Shear Blades are an aftermarket part manufactured from the highest quality tool steel and ground to the highest of tolerances. These shear cutting blades are used in either the manufacturing or testing of large and small tires for both consumer and industrial use.
Tool steels for shear blades are usually of the D-2 variety or better. Special steels have been developed for other blade manufacturers that can be adapted to the Akron Special Machinery cutting system. The blades being manufactured are tested throughout the manufacturing process to insure that the hardness tolerances and the physical numerical requirements are being held to within our specifications.
Shipment of Akron Special Machinery shear blades can be as quick as a few days if a previous stocking arrangement has been worked out. If no stocking arrangement is in place, then quick delivery can be arranged through the use of Carolina Knife's steel inventory.
