CHIPPER KNIFES
( Forget the obsession with low prices - look at price for value !!!)
Value is lifetime per spent money !!!
Value is an uniform, consistent chip quality increasing the market value of your end product !!!
A purchasing policy only targeting low prices is hurting you profits !!!
We strives to give you higher value with new developments:
  • "Chipper steel" (8% chromium content) is an improved steel tool product

  • The alloy is more expensive, but improves the lifetime considerably (up to 50% higher lifetime can be achieved). At the same time giving a constant flake quality.
  • Compound wear plates with integrated fastening bolts
    The main point is the life of the individual parts used. With through-hardened solid steel and sandwich wear plates, the weakening of the wear surface created by the fastening holes led to greater wear and tear in the area of the holes. The newly-developed Boehler technology avoids these weak areas. The principal characteristic is the high hardness throughout of the wear layer, which is applied to tough base material. The threaded fastening bolts are thus fixed firmly to the backing material. This guarantees not only greater economy but also longer life and a quality of flaking which stays consistent over longer periods.

 
 
 
Again our wear plates are considerably more expensive then the convention ones but the lifetime can be more than tripled!
