Foil and plastic blades


For each film

the right high-performance blade

No two films are the same. Some are tough and elastic at the same time. Additives were used in others. And third parties must be able to withstand impact loads and lateral forces.

In other words, film production is an absolutely high-performance process. And that means that high-performance blades are also required. LUTZ BLADES has been supplying leading film manufacturers with excellent blades for years. We offer replacement blades for the following machine manufacturers, among others: Starlinger®, Kampf®, Windmöller + Hölscher®.

Whether as a razor blade, a 3-hole blade, a carbide blade, a ceramic blade or an exact special shape according to customer drawings: We process different types of steel, carbides and ceramics and adjust our blades precisely to the specific cutting task of the user in terms of material, heat treatment and cutting geometry.


the right pelletizing blade

In the plastics processing industry, granulates are used for the manufacture of plastic parts, in film production, as fillers in concrete and as carrier materials in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. However, the recycling industry is now also one of the producers of plastic pellets and thus provides a valuable service in the circular economy.

Our pelletizing blades, also known as pelletizing blades, are used at the end of the manufacturing process to cut plastics into pellets. LUTZ BLADES has many years of experience in the manufacture of industrial blades for numerous industries and offers a wide range of different blade geometries. Of course, we also develop and produce customized special blades.

Only high-quality materials are used for the pelletizing blades from LUTZ BLADES: They are made of carbon steel or bimetal, with a particularly hard and wear-resistant alloy on the cutting edge.

  • 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.
