Sheeter knives use a rotary motion to affect the cutting of sheets of material to certain desired lengths. It is also called a stop cutter because at the exact point of cut, the sheet is “stopped” out, or cut to the exact specified length. The sheeting process generally consists of 2 blades working together. At the point of cut they work like a straight shear blade, but at all points before and after they work like a rotary blade. They can be made from carbide or tool steel or even be of an inlay or clad material. What blade material is chosen depends on the requirements of the manufacturing departments in conjunction with the purchasing department. “Is the squeeze worth the juice?” That question is answered individually at each purchasing interval.
