Plastics processing of all types comprises one of the largest manufacturing industries in the world today. Plastics fabrication plants are found in virtually all corners of the world. Every day companies across North America and the globe form plastic objects, and Hyde machine knives and industrial blades help make that possible.
From compounding of virgin plastic through all types of plastic product processing through recycling of scrap material, you depend on machine knives that can make the cut, each and every time. And Hyde has been supplying these types of quality knives to the plastics industry for decades.
As a user, you realize that today’s compounding, processing and recycling requirements provide cutting challenges never before realized. In a very competitive industry that is constantly evolving, efficiency and profitability are key performance measures upon which you are judged. Frequently shutting down equipment due to machine knife failure is costly and unacceptable. You have helped us gain the experience necessary through years of applications engineering to design and recommend specifications that will extend the life of the tool, resulting in increased productivity and yield. This in turn will boost your bottom line.
No matter where you are in the plastics industry pipeline, Hyde has you covered. Some of the more common machine knives we manufacture include:
- rotors for strand pelletizing (solid and wedge-lock)
- knives for under-water pelletizing
- pelletizer bed knives and rotor knives
- miscellaneous wear parts
- blow molding knives (jab knives, cold knives, parison knives, trim knives, etc)
- granulator knives
- shredder knives
- … and just about any other knife found in your production facility
Knife material choice, edge style, bevel angle, edge thickness, surface micro finish, hone technique, flatness . . . . all are critical functions that will affect the performance of the knives you use in your plastics processing operations. Tell us what your machine knife challenges are and we’ll build you a knife that overcomes those challenges. With well over a century’s experience in applications engineering and helping customers, Hyde will help you optimize your machine knife performance. You can count on Hyde.
