A sharper blade means quicker cuts and better end-product all around!
Did you know that most shear blades could have 2 or 4 edges on the top blade and 4 edges on the bottom blade? Depending on the manufacturers specifications, shear blades can have as many as 4 edges. If you have a blade with no edges left we can send them to be re-sharpened.
Most shear blades depending on their condition can be re-sharpened to improve cutting quality.
There are two options when it comes to blade re-sharpening:
Option 1) You can ship the blades to us, we will get them re-sharpened and ship them back to you. Usually takes 1 week to re-sharpen blades.
Option 2) We will come to your facility, remove the blades for you, take the blades off-site to get them re-sharpened. After about 1 week, we will return with sharpened blades, re-install them and adjust the gap as per manufacturers recommendations.
BLADE GAP ADJUSTMENT:
There are a lot of steps in getting your shear blades set-up for optimum cutting performance. Failure to adjust the gap of your shear blades and hold downs can result in permanent damage to your blades and even the shear itself.
