Lifetime warranty

 
Each knife has a lifetime warranty. We guarantee a free exchange of knives for new ones in the event of manufacturing defects being discovered. The guarantee covers knives whose degree of natural wear and tear as a result of operation falls within the criteria:

Steel knives: Guarantee of the highest performance of the Duritan / Duratec insert worn to a maximum height of 14 mm. Carbide knives: Guarantee of the highest performance of the Incomet Supreme / Ultra Cut insert worn to a maximum height of 7 mm.


Knife types TKM

TKM has developed various types of blades that are adapted to the material to be processed and the operating conditions. Choosing the right quality affects the life of the knife and significantly increases the working efficiency.

TKM knives are usually manufactured from so-called bimetal. The high-alloy insert is connected with the construction material. Standard knives are made of solid material, whereas more advanced knives have special inserts made of HSS or Widia material (carbide).


Comparison of the service life of different knife types

 

The best results are obtained by cutting with tungsten carbide insert knives in combination with the correct configuration of the cutting knife program and regular machine maintenance. On the next page we present a comparison of the most important parameters of the wide-linked knives that are available on the market.


Widia Widia is uneven...

Paleta dostępnych na rynku noży introligatorskich z wkładką widiową jest bardzo szeroka. Przy podejmowaniu decyzji o zakupie warto jednak zwrócić uwagę na jakość materiału zastosowanego do produkcji noży. Noże z węglika spiekanego wykonane są zazwyczaj z 85% do 90% węglika spiekanego (Widia) i 10% do 15% środka wiążącego - kobaltu (Co). Przemysł poligraficzny wykorzystuje głównie węgliki spiekane o średniej, drobnej, sub-mikronowej i bardzo drobnej gradacji ziaren. Im drobniejsza struktura ziarna, tym większa jest twardość i odporność na zużycie. Poniższa tabela przedstawia różnice w jakości noży widiowych dostępnych na rynku.


Structure of spectrum knives available on the market

 



The tungsten carbide grains used in TKM knives have an average size from about 0.2 µm to 1 µm (micrometer). TKM offers two types of spectral inserts of sub-micron (Incomet Supreme) and Ultra Fine (Ultra Cut) quality. Both types of TKM spectral inserts provide the correct strength making the cutting process the most cost-effective and efficient. Incomet Supreme and Ultra Cut knives are distinguished from other knives by their extreme hardness and wear resistance.
