3 hole blades

by LUTZ BLADES

From razor blade to versatile industrial blade

We move with the times - that is why LUTZ BLADES has been one of the leading manufacturers of 3-hole blades for industrial use for decades. This flexibility is also reflected in the application areas of our products: while the models were once used as razor blades, the geometries are now a widely used classic in technical cutting applications.

The high-quality 3-hole blades are used in a wide range of cutting tasks - for example, when cutting paper or when used as a foil blade - and also offer you the right solution for your requirements.

How to draw

3-hole blades from LUTZ BLADES made of:
  • Razor blade sharpness
  • Material and coating as required
  • Different cutting edge geometries, depending on the application
  • Choice of 1-edged and 2-edged blades

The wide range of materials

for our blades

Our product portfolio offers you blades in thicknesses between 0.06 - 3.0 mm and with final hardnesses between 40 - 85 HRc. You also have a wide choice in our material program:

  • Carbon steel
  • Rust-resistant, hardened steel
  • (HSS) High-performance High-speed Steel
  • Ceramic
  • Austenite
  • Bimetal
  • Carbide

The versatile coating program
for our blades

TiN (Titan-Nitrid)

Standard hard material with high wear resistance and relatively high coefficient of friction (against reference material steel approx. 0.4 to 0.7), usually gold-colored, safe application range up to approx. 300 °C.

TiC (Titan-Carbit)

Has lower wear resistance than TiN with significantly lower coefficient of friction (against reference material steel approx. 0.3 to 0.5), usually anthracite colored.

TiCN (Titan-Carbonit)

Intermediate coating material between the high wear resistance of TiN and the low coefficient of friction of TiC, relative position between TiN and TiC depending on the ratio of C and N, usually anthracite color.

TiAlN (Titan-Aluminium-Nitrid)

Has greater oxidation resistance than TiN with comparable coefficient of friction, usually anthracite blue.

ZrN (Zirkon-Nitrid)

With a wear resistance similar to TiN, but denser structure (morphology) than TiN and thus greater resistance to pitting under appropriate load, usually steel colored.

DLC (Diamond-like Carbon)

Has high wear resistance with low coefficient of friction (approx. 0.1 against reference material steel); susceptible to impact loads and high temperatures (between 100 and 300 °C depending on structure).

(PTFE) (Poly-Tetra-Fluor-Ethylen) – Teflon®

Teflon® non-stick coating (PTFE); due to the very low surface tension, practically no foreign bodies stick to the cutting edge, resistant to acids and alkalis; significantly reduced frictional resistance; the very low static friction allows jerk-free cutting (therefore very suitable for the medical sector); low wear resistance; not suitable for contact with sodium and at temperatures above 250 °C.

Color varnish

Applied over the entire surface, serves as a sorting aid for different material thicknesses and as corrosion protection.

Blueing / Blackening

Applied over the entire surface, light corrosion and starch protection, also serves as a distinguishing aid.
