Knife holders

Our Knife holders

The right option for every cut

Whether shear cut, crush cut, burst cut/razor cut knife holders or hot cut holders, whether from the Premium, Elite or Ultimate series – they all convince with the most precise knife guidance, long service life, simple operation and secure hold in daily use. Furthermore, almost all of our knife holders can be integrated into DIENES slitting systems. Such as in our pioneering, automatic, simultaneous positioning system SIMU-FLASH or also in our high-precision positioning aids with manual operation. In our research, we are constantly developing our products further. From standard products to individual special solutions, we can meet any slitting technology and customer-specific requirements.

We offer the right solution for all applications and requirements. That is why we have decided to divide our knife holders into three different categories. Our extensive product range extends from well-engineered standard solutions to special custom-made products. Hopefully you will get an impression of the multitude of possible combinations regarding special applications of DIENES knife holder types. Should you be interested in one or the other special design or should you have further questions against the background of our information, we are of course at your disposal for further inquiries.

Different depth settings

The depth of overlap of top and bottom knives is one of the most important cutting parameters. For the adjustment of the overlap depth, there are different technical solutions for shear cut knife holders, which differ in their precision, complexity and user-friendliness.

DIENES knife holder axles

DIENES supplies knife holders with piston system for the vertical stroke, vertical stroke with single and double guide, piston and diaphragm systems for the horizontal stroke and ball slide guides for vertical and horizontal stroke. Compared to simpler systems, the ball-bearing knife holder axles, which are manufactured with the utmost precision, guarantee a backlash-free, vibration-damping assembly that allows the DIENES fineblanking technology to develop to its full potential. This means that our knife holders can cope with all cutting technology requirements.

In addition to our numerous products, we develop individual solutions and thus constantly create new innovations on the market.

The perfect slitting system

We develop and install bothb plug-in systems that are precisely tailored to your requirements or slitting systems that are installed as modules in planned machines and retrofitted in running machines. At DIENES we can already simulate the use of the complete units on the computer. Of course, with all common interfaces and bus systems available. The example of a Jagenberg cross cutter from 1977 shows how you can also achieve considerable cost savings through modernisation. The set-up times could be reduced by more than 70% through fully automatic top and bottom knife adjustment. The service life of top and bottom knives could be increased almost tenfold.

Technical highlights and additional functions

In addition to our numerous products, we develop individual solutions and thus constantly create new innovations on the market.

Of course, we are constantly optimising the standards of our knife holders in our research work. This enables us to meet any cutting technology and customer-specific requirements. If you have any questions about our products, please do not hesitate to contact us. According to your individual wishes, we also realise functional and optical special solutions in our in-house development department and with the most modern technology.
