Ground band knives in action: Materials and applications

Ground band knives are used in both horizontal and vertical foam cutting machines. When horizontally cutting and splitting, the single-sided ground knives are guided not only by knife bars or bindings, but also at the back by knife retainers - ensuring maximum stability. Double-sided ground knives can only be guided laterally on the flanks. Perfect for cutting soft foams!

Our ground band knives are ideall for:
soft foams, technical foams, recycled materials, rubber and plastics

For many very hard or recycled materials with hard components, the knife is continuously sharpened.
