Custom and Pre-Made Knives

Blades by OEM

Carolina Knife Co. manufactures industrial blades for a wide range of original equipment manufactures (OEMs) in a variety of industrial conversion and processing industries. Below is a list of the primary industries that we serve followed by a list of the best-known OEMs that we manufacture from each industry. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you don’t see your OEM listed, because we also specialize in manufacturing custom blades, which are often priced below the OEM price for replacement blades.

OEMs for Tire and Rubber Conversion Blades

Akron Standard, Fischer, FMP-Rauma, Spadone Hypex, Steelastic, Stewart-Bolling, and VMI

Akron Standard

Akron Special Machinery - Akron Standard Shear Blades

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.

Calemard

Calemard Slitter, Rewinder Blades

The Calemard system is used in the many different textile converting applications. This style of blade is used in both conventional and specialty types of slitting. Most of the Calemard slitter blades are made from high quality tool steels and precision ground to exacting tolerances.

Many of the Calemard blades Carolina Knife Co. manufactures are made from M-2 tool steel and hardened to a Rockwell of 62-64 Rockwell C scale. This is to insure a long, productive run life during the material manufacturing process.

Carolina Knife Co stocks some Calemard blades. Others can be manufactured quickly from its own steel stock that we maintain on the floor at all times. The Calemard Machine is a fine machine that great blades only make better. Carolina Knife Co. can supply those blades.

Cameron

Cameron Slitter Blades

Cameron machines, including slitter rewinders, have been a mainstay in the converting industry for many decades. The rights to this machine have recently been purchased by GL&V (GLV), and they maintain a stock of parts, including spare slitter blades for this machine in their stock.

Carolina Knife Co. also stocks and manufactures slitter blades, and other knives for the Cameron machine. The steel types range form 52100 to D-2 steel and also some carbide materials. The score cut Cameron machines can also be fitted to hot cut the material with very little changeover from the existing score cut set-up.

There are Cameron machines in the field that can score cut, rotary shear cut, and razor cut. Not at the same time but with a change of tooling; all on the same machine. Cameron machines are primarily used in the converting of paper, film and foil.

Carolina Knife can manufacture blades for each step in the converting process, including the three aforementioned methods of slitting. We maintain a wide range of replacement blades in stock ready to go.

Beloit

Beloit Paper Machine Blades

Top and Bottom Slitters for Beloit Technology Paper Machines

Beloit top and bottom paper slitter blades are manufactured from grades 52100 through powered metal quality materials. Beloit, Lenox and GL&V (GLV) all provide OEM equipment for the converting industries, especially the paper industry. Carolina Knife Co. manufactures and sharpens blades for all these machines and many other OEMs from the paper conversion industry and other related industries.

The cutting tip or edge of bottom knives can be manufactured from carbide material, which will greatly increase run life. Powdered metal is not as common on bottom knives as it is on top slitter knives, but can be a cost effective alternative to either carbide or ceramic material.

Choosing the right style of high speed paper manufacturing equipment and blades is essential to getting the most out of your manufacturing process. Style refers to all elements of what is inherent in the tool, including material, hardness, cutting angle, or edge sharpness. Allow the experts at Carolina Knife Co. to help you find the correct style of blade for your individual needs.
