Although we don’t manufacture blades, we offer a comprehensive in-house blade sharpening facility at GM Diagnostics. This allows us to sharpen and regrind all of our client’s granulator blades ready for reuse. What’s more, our re-sharpening and re-conditioning service has a fast and effective turnaround. We ensure you can get on with your commitments with as little disruption as possible.
With a total of three industrial blade grinders ranging from 2m to 3.1m, we can offer a quick turn round when needed.
Blades that are blunt don’t efficiently cut the material. They have to use more pressur7ge and more force to try and cut through which in turn ruins both your blade and material. It also creates an irregular and often too dusty granulate. When this granulate is fed back into any production facility, it can cause major feed issues.
In blow moulding, the granulate then has an irregular bulk density which in turn can create large variations in wall sections due to uneven feed of material.
In injection moulding, the use of a poor regrind material causes the material to slip on the screw as well as bridging in hoppers and throats. Not to mention the extra work and load put on the granulator itself.
