Blades for the by LUTZ BLADES
When it comes to blades that craftsmen use in their work, LUTZ BLADES is one of the market leaders. Because we have two important aspects in mind from the very beginning: firstly, the needs of the professional craftsman. And on the other hand, the requirements of the tool dealer.
Whether for floor layers, painters or upholsterers, whether cutter knives, carpet knives, roofing knives or styrofoam knives - our blades and knives have been successfully listed in the trade for years as LUTZ BLADES or other well-known own brand.
- Clean cutting edges without edge buildup
- Less cutting dust
- Higher cutting speeds
- Higher productivity due to fewer blade changes
- Best materials
- Compliance with the tightest tolerances
- Optimal hardness
- Selected high-performance coatings
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 steels
- Rust resistant and stainless steels
- High-performance high-speed steels (HSS)
- Tool steels
- Hard metals
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.
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.
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.
Has greater oxidation resistance than TiN with comparable coefficient of friction, usually anthracite blue.
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.
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).
Has lower wear resistance than TiN. Advantage of CrN: lower residual stresses than TiN. Therefore partially useful for applications with high bending load.
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.
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.
