As one of the world’s leading industrial knife manufacturers, Leverwood Knife Works knows the importance of precision knife-grinding machines. We provide our customers with the cutting-edge success their businesses demand. No matter what your industrial manufacturing business demands—from food processing and printing to paper cutting, packaging, and converting—Leverwood is here to help. We know that when your business requires precision industrial blades for shearing/cutting, chopping, perforating, folding, scraping, sealing, or slicing—it all starts with an ultra-precision knife-grinding machine.
Today, we’ll be exploring a bit more about what knife-grinding machines are and what they’re used for. We’ll also discuss the new, custom knife-grinding machine developed by Leverwood and the difference it can make for your business.
What Are Knife-Grinding Machines?
A knife-grinding machine, or grinder, is used to sharpen the teeth or put a sharpened edge on blades. While there are many different types of grinders out there—for a wide variety of applications—most operate in one of two ways. The first is through a power-driven, abrasive grinding wheel that is spun and traverses across a fixed workpiece. The second is where a workpiece is moved towards a grinding head as the head remains fixed in place. While this may be the general theory, our engineers will perfect the process.
Why Do We Develop Our Own Custom Knife-Grinding Machines?
As an experienced industrial knife manufacturer, we understand the concerns and demands of the industry. One of the prevailing pain points for our customer’s concerns is lead times. They need them to be shorter, and understandably so! Another commonly voiced customer concern has to do with how to handle volume increases efficiently.
To solve these and other customer problems, we began investigating the myriad of knife-grinding machine options available for the type of industrial work we do. However, much of what we looked at just doesn’t measure up to the exact specifications we need. So, we custom-design our own!
This endeavor involves our entire team’s efforts to ensure that we create a custom knife-grinding machine that will produce results both for our customers and us. The whole process takes around nine months from start to finish, beginning with our earliest conversations and through to the various development stages—researching, planning, and prototyping—until we reach our final, fully-realized custom CNC knife grinder.
At the end of the process, we’re proud to have developed another state-of-the-art, custom knife-grinding machine that’s specially designed for operator ease of use while delivering ultra-precision accurate blades.
