For over four decades, Carolina Knife Company has been a leading industrial knives and blades provider. Companies throughout the nation have relied on our high-quality products for their cutting applications. With state-of-the-art technology and machinery, we can design and manufacture custom industrial blades for virtually any cutting application. Some of the conversion industries we manufacture industrial blades for include converting, packaging, paper, film, foil, and tire and rubber.
Whatever your application, we can manufacture to meet the needs and demands of your application. But first, you will need to request a quote! In this blog, we are going to walk you through our quote request process, sharing the information you need before you submit a request for an industrial blade.
Requesting A Quote For Industrial Blades
When you need an industrial machine blade or knife for your industry application, not just any ole product will do. Whether you work in film and foil, packaging, textile converting, or another industry, each application is unique and requires a customized solution that meets all the demands, specifications, and regulations.
At Carolina Knife Company, our industrial blades are just as unique as your business. Before manufacturing a custom blade, we first take your specific applications into account, making note of all requirements and specifications. Because each machine blade and knife we manufacture is customized, you get a quality and reliable solution without the high price tags — instead, we determine how much your order will cost when you request a quote before you place it! When you submit a quote request, the final cost will be determined by the design needs. Requesting a quote for an industrial blade is free of charge and obligation-free.
What We Need In Your Quote Request
To ensure our knife specialists give you the most accurate quote and manufacture the correct blade, there is some specific information we need. Here are some of the most important aspects to include in your custom blade quote request.
Existing or Desired Blade Dimensions
First things first, we will need the measurements of the product you are requesting. For example, if you are submitting a quote request for circular blades, include both inside and outside diameters, thickness, and a description of the cutting edge. These measurements can be taken from an existing blade that maybe is not getting the job done anymore.
How The Blade Will Be Used
In order to manufacture your industrial blade to your specific needs and industry standards, we need to know what the blade will be used to cut. Knowing what the blade will be coming into contact with — such as film, rubber, fabric, paper, or cardboard — and what kind of process the blade’s actions will be a part of can help our industrial blade manufacturers determine the best material for your blade.
Description Of Current Blades
If you can, include the material used in current blades. Knowing the previous material for your used blades will give us a good lead to go off of as we manufacture blades tailored to your application.
List Of Desired Qualities
It is helpful if you include some of the features and qualities that are most important to you. If features such as low cost, longer tool life, improved cut quality, or faster lead times are important to you, include it in your quote request!
Quantity of Quoted
Make sure to include the quantity of these blades so we can better determine the price of your order. Keep in mind, regardless of quantity, all of our blades are custom-made and we do not have minimum order quantities.
Any Images, Blueprints, Sketches, or Technical Drawings
While this step is optional, including any images, blueprints, sketches, or technical drawings of the blade or end product can help us in crafting your blade!
