Ceramic blades need to be provided by a ceramic blade manufacturer, not a ceramic blade distributor. We are a ceramic blade manufacturer, not a ceramic blade distributor, so stop by our blade-making facility in Virginia and see the difference!
Cadence can supply solid ceramic blades and slitting knives in many shapes and sizes.
Recent developments have made it possible to produce extremely sharp solid ceramic razor blades from transformation-toughened zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic. Although not recommended for high-shock applications, the Rc 75 hardness and low friction coefficient make zirconia ceramic particularly effective in film slitting operations, where blade life can be more than 100 times that of conventional steel. These cutting blades are also widely used in manufacturing capacitors in the electronics industry and pill cutting in the pharmaceutical industry.
Cadence stands ready to assist you in achieving the optimum design that will allow you to get maximum performance from your ceramic blades.
