Types SM 1775, SM 2316 and SM 4031 are used mainly in the production of glass bottles and glass containers with cutting rates up to 200 cuts per minute. In order for our shear blades to withstand this type of stress, our blades are made of high quality, high speed steel.
For the production of crystal and pressed glasss articles, glass manufacturers mainly use PUTSCH® shear blades type SM 3533, SM 3167and SM 3299. These blades are made from high precision solid specialty steel in our state-of-the-art machining centers. Shear blades manufactured in this processing manner guarantee superior cutting results and minimal wear and tear.
Shear blades are made of high quality, heat resistant special steel. Stringent quality controls are applied to every blade produced. The shear blades in each packaged unit are sorted by height with a ± 1/250 inch (± 0,1 mm).
