Maxwell Rotary Slitter Knives

We are constantly working on the development of new knife materials in order to perfect the wear resistance and toughness for specific tasks. This pride in discovery ensures an optimal balance between the determination of the knife material and the tuned heat treatment processes. As a result we produce the right “recipe” for your cutting application.
