Knife Heat Treating Services
We know that any machine knife or blade is only as good as the steel it is produced from. That’s why here at Precision Edge, we take great care in sourcing and preparing our blades. We only ever use material sourced from Europe’s finest metal manufacturers and offer our own knife heat treatment service to guarantee the best quality blades.
All our components use the highest quality steels and are 100% guaranteed for the life of the tool. We can offer our customers various grades of steel depending on the blade design and application you plan to use it for. We generally stock D2 HC/HC tool steel, M2 HSS, CS100, 420/440 stainless steel and various PM grades for particularly demanding applications.
Our knife heat treatment service is highly accurate and consistent. We always look to operate to an extremely high level of inspection at all stages in the manufacturing process, retaining full traceability through our in-house QA (quality assurance) control system. We take such pride in our machinists’ work that we happily offer a ‘no quibble’ guarantee for the entire life of our tools.
As part of our heat treatment service, we can provide a range of high performance coatings to help you get the very best out of your knives. These coatings help to increase the life of the blade and improve the wear resistance properties of the knives. The high-performance coatings we provide include titanium nitride, titanium aluminium nitride and nitron MC. We can also offer cryogenic low-temperature treatments to stabilise components should you require them.
