Corrusystems offers corrugated cardboard slitter knives to fit the most widely used corrugators. Our knives are manufactured from tungsten carbide. This ensures superior cutting quality and long slitter knife life.
Why is tungsten carbide the best material for corrugated slitter knives?
Tungsten carbide is the material of choice for corrugator slitter knives. That’s because its unmatched hardness — only diamond is harder — makes it wear- and impact-resistant.
Tungsten carbide, what is it?
Carbide consists of carbon bonded to a very hard metal like titanium, vanadium, or as in the case of our slitting knives, tungsten. Then, a sintering process cements the carbide, tungsten, and a steel binder together. Because each of these components has its own unique qualities, the combination and the sintering process itself gives the final material its ultimate toughness.
Different parameters affect the properties of tungsten carbide. This allows optimization for specific applications, in this case as corrugated slitter knives.
The base materials for our slitter knives are exclusively raw, unrecycled materials, so no recycled steel. This guarantees controlled hardness and toughness, which is not possible with recycled materials.
Benefits of tungsten carbide corrugated slitter knives
Our precision ground tungsten carbide blades result in a sharp, clean-cut finish, which also prevents deformation of the corrugated board structure. And because of their extreme durability, our tungsten carbide slitting knives are superior in situations where other knives would wear out quickly, such as in large production runs. This reduces the number of blade grinding intervals, increasing both productivity and the service life of your slitter knives.
Our corrugator slitting knives range fits BHS, Fosber, Mitsubishi, Marquip, Agnati, and other brand corrugators. For a continuous clean cut, we supply matching grinding wheels for each knife, according to machine supplier specifications.

Always carefully follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions when installing the slitting knives and when operating the corrugator. This will prevent accidents and guarantee optimal performance and durability of your slitting knives.
