A full line of blades designed to cut and finish rolls of paper, film and foil, corrugated materials, textiles and abrasives down to size is available from Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS), Southbridge, Mass. Hyde’s score slitter blades, complemented by a line of perforator blades for finishing products, are engineered to provide clean cuts consistently when taking materials down to sheets.
Also known as “crush cutters,” Hyde’s score slitter blades convert rolls of materials into sheets or smaller sections using a crushing rather than a cutting action. These blades are designed to exacting original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications for replacement on machinery brands such as Appleton, Arpeco, Arrow, Ashton, Baldwin-Gregg, Cameron, Coretech, Didde- Glaser, Dusenbery, Goss, Johnstone, Kidder, Schreiber, Tidland and Western Gear, among others.
Manufactured most commonly of 52100 steel, an extensive array of blades in a variety of outer and inner diameters, thicknesses and angles is available in stock. The blades can also be constructed of other alloys such as D2, M2 and stainless steel. Hyde blades are ground on proprietary custom grinding machines to provide the highest quality and consistency in operation and are re-sharpenable for longer life and reuse.
All Hyde perforator blades are made to order based on the tie length, cut length and number of teeth required for the application. The blades feature machine-ground notches, which are more consistent in shape than laser-cut or milled notches and are available in 1-inch to 15-inch diameter tooth configurations with notches as small as .005 inch.
Starting with a wide range of the highest-grade steels and alloys, Hyde employs proprietary processes in blanking, laser cutting, heat treating, grinding and polishing to ensure superior cutting performance of each individual blade. Manufactured in facilities with ISO 9001:2008 plant certification, durable Hyde IBS blades are highly corrosion resistant and are engineered for long life.
