Bottom knives from DIENES

DIENES is the world’s leading precision supplier of industrial circular knives, knife holders and slitting systems. Of course, bottom knives are also part of the product portfolio.

Use of bottom knives

Bottom knives are usually mounted on electric motor-driven engines. Since the bottom knives are screwed to the motor flange, a quick change of knives is ensured. On the basis of the geometric design, a distinction is made between:

  • Cup knives with one-sided cutting edge
  • T-shaped bottom knives with cutting edges on both sides.

Optionally, both variants can be equipped with carbide-tipped cutting edges to increase their service life.

Significantly reduce risk of injury with lower blade with safety catch groove

Incorrect positioning of the knife holder and incorrect stroke sequence can cause particles to detach from the top or bottom knife at high cutting speeds. It can also happen that the carbide ring separates from the knife holder of the bottom knife, loosens or is damaged. To minimize this danger, DIENES has developed bottom knives with safety catch grooves.  In the event of a wandering movement, the top knife is caught in this groove. Thus, no damage or breakage of the bottom knife is possible anymore. Secure this savings potential for yourself.

Collars from DIENES

High-quality collars are important for locking bottom knives (grooving knives and circular knives) and allow fastening in any position when fastening screws.
