Fernite Machine Knife Development – How it works.
Our machine knife experts will work with you to develop, test and manufacture a blade that meets your exact requirements.
We begin by assessing your requirements – what problem are you looking to solve? How is your existing setup performing? Where are the bottlenecks?
Our technical team will then work closely with you to select the ideal grade and condition of material, develop the profile of the blade and refine the cutting edge to deliver the results you need.
Our factory is equipped with a huge range of the latest technology, enabling us to develop the widest possible range of cutting solutions.
We pride ourselves on being able to solve the cutting challenges other machine knife companies won’t even attempt.
From light components to heavy-duty large blades, Fernite have the capability to manufacture a wide range of non-standard and specialist products.
Whether your existing blades aren’t delivering the performance you need, or whether you require a new blade for a specific application, we can develop a bespoke solution which meets your exact requirements.
