Focus of the analysis
The quality of the cut edge and the service life of the knives depend to a large extent on the care with which the knives are set. To achieve the best cut and the smallest cutting burr, there is an optimum knife setting for each dimension and material type. Optimum cutting quality can only be achieved if the tools and systems used also correspond to the current state of cutting technology. Through the Kaizen analysis, a target/actual comparison of the relevant influencing factors is carried out on site.
Our Kaizen analysis offers the following services:
1. Quality-relevant collection of basic data
