New knife turning unit

If you have a Bäumer oscillating contour cutting machine (OFS-202 or 222) with a commission number up to 11/1175, we highly recommend that the next time you need to replace the knife turning unit, you can upgrade to the new design described here to achieve even better cutting results and higher efficiency.

More precise cutting guide

When comparing the old and new guides, you will notice that the round push rod has now been replaced by a square one.

Combined with twice the number of ball bearings from four to eight, it features a rod with improved tensile strength and a more precise knife guide.

Easy replacement

The new knife turning unit can be easily mounted and is an affordable replacement for the original part.

The mounting holes are identical, so there is no need to call in a technician to do the job. The knife length does not change however the tension wire length changes.


Longer service life

If you upgrade, this will result in less metal fatigue on the turning unit, less wear in general, a longer service life and therefore makes the new turning unit a more cost effective alternative.


Precise cutting, efficient replacement

Note: Bäumer will continue to stock the original component as well.
