  • Integration of tools in automation solutions

Regrinding Service & Tool Maintenance

Regrinding Service
Rotary slitter knives and straight knives lose their sharpness over time. Unsharp knives have a negative influence on the cutting result and the cutting edge quality. In extreme cases, rounded knife edges can lead to the fact that the required cutting gaps can no longer be maintained.

We therefore advise you to regularly get your cutting tools regrinded by our specialists.

Tool Maintenance
To ensure a consistently high quality of cut edges, cutting tools have to undergo a routine overhaul.

The same applies for changed cutting requirements and cutting parameters that demand the tools to be modified.
For both requirements TKM will assist you with state-of-the-art technology and experienced experts.
