Replacing the knife on your Baumfolder PM80 cutter is very important to ensure you are always getting a perfect cut, without straining and wearing down the machine. The power of the electric and hydraulic systems will push even a dull blade through your stack, but when a dull blade is used the machine works much harder and will wear down quicker. An easy and fairly inexpensive way to keep your cutter performing at its peak for years to come is to frequently replace your knife.
Inlay knives (INL) are made of a bi-metallic composition that consists of one part high allow tool steel and one part standard grade steel. A special fusion process bonds these two grades of steel together to produce a high quality knife at an economical price. They offer an approximate knife life of 8 hours or about 1,200 cycles*.
