High Speed Steel or Tungsten Carbide Tipped, Burcas manufacture the full range of standard and special trimming machine knives. TCT is also available in Micro-Grain, improving life further by up to 2 – 3 times that of conventional fine grain carbide.
The print, paper, converting industry has developed and will continue to require knives which are accurate, long-life, dust-free, and visually acceptable. Burcas has specifically designed all our products to meet these four requirements and to deliver the highest quality of operation across a range of different cutting machines.
Many of the dust and wear problems in the paper industry are caused by poor quality slitting. Burcas has produced dramatic improvements in knife life, quality of cut and dust reduction by using the whole spectrum of available materials – Tungsten carbide, Ceramic, High Speed Steel and Powder Steels – and ensuring efficient cutting angles, surface finish and flatness.
The Burcas Solution, the combination of the right grades of materials and cutting geometry – matched to suit the cutting requirement, at Burcas we specialise in supplying customers with knives that achieve longer life between regrinds, thus decreasing the down time:
Multi-Cut Plus Slitters
Burcas Multi-Cut Plus Slitters are manufactured from CPM 10V – a unique American powdered steel that, because of its alloy content and structure, provides a superior wear resistance with excellent toughness.
Carbide Cut Bottom Knives
Burcas Carbide Cut Bottom Knives are manufactured from Carbide material that, because it is harder (82 HRc) than the slitter (63 HRc) and manufactured to extremely close tolerances, with a mirror finish and razor sharp edge the result is a reduction of dust formation and optimum performance of the knife.
The Carbide Cut Bottom Knife provides very high wear resistance with excellent toughness, extending the sharpness of the knife keeping machine down time to an absolute minimum.
Circular Milling Units
Burcas also supply Circular Milling Units with brazed carbide inserts, replacement tips and special slitters.
At Burcas we are now offering this system to monitor the use of individual Customer’s knives. A calculation of stocks levels for each machine is established and a safe inventory agreed. When the knives are sent to Burcas, they are identified, numbered, logged and recorded, then the Management process begins.
A cost analysis is recorded for each type of knife, which assists in the forecasting of knife expenditure. Alternatively, Burcas will lease the knives to customers, saving huge outlay costs for new knives.The costs will be spread evenly throughout the life of this precision ground tool.
In addition to precision aerospace machining we also offer a range of other services
Precision CNC machined components supporting repeater demands for the Rail, Food, Oil & Gas and Precision advanced engineering markets.
