Trainings and seminars

Optimize your processes: With first-hand know-how. The professional operation and maintenance of slitting systems is an essential success factor for more safety and efficiency in production. That is why we have established “Training and Seminars” within the DIENES Slitting Academy.

  • When do you use the shear cut or the crush cut and when do you prefer to choose the razor blade cut?
  • What adjustment options are there to achieve the perfect cut?
  • Why is regrinding so important and what do you have to pay attention to?

Advanced Training – Deep Dive

After you have completed the basic training, you will certainly have product-specific questions. Of course, each cutting material brings very different challenges. The problems range from poor cutting edge quality such as edge build-up or wavy cutting edges to burr formation and unclean roll mirrors to low service life and cutting dust accumulation. Here we recommend a deep-dive seminar that addresses your problems individually and shows you how to reduce costs, cut set-up times and increase blade life.

The advances trainings take place at your premises, at DIENES or online, as desired, and last 3 hours. Exclusively for one company only, maximum 15 participants – € 1200.00 plus VAT and travel expenses. Prior participation in the basic seminar is strongly recommended.

Regrinding service

For optimum cutting results, DIENES knives must also be reground regularly, despite their long service life. However, the importance of resharpening is mostly underestimated. Our regrinding service ensures that you achieve a high cutting quality even after longer use of your knives.
