NARROW KNIFE

NARROW KNIFE

Known for its versatility, Simmons’ Narrow Knife Edge blade is designed to slice and peel a variety of soft products. Its finely sharpened edge results in a consistently smooth finish every time for every application. The carbon steel blade (also available in stainless steel) will also retain its edge for longer when used with grinding wheels specifically matched to the steel type and slicing application.

Curved Wide Knife edge blades

WIDE KNIFE

WIDE KNIFE

Produced from high carbon steel and joined with precise, reliable welds, Simmons’ Wide Knife Edge blade is designed to fit a wide variety of machinery. This allows it to withstand variable feed rates while still maintaining a sharp edge throughout slicing, splitting, or peeling operations.

SCALLOP

SCALLOP

Simmons’ Scallop Edge blades are available in high-quality carbon steel as well as stainless steel. Each scallop is individually ground to perfection, which serves to minimize dust and provide maximum yield no matter the application.

Curved Wavy bandknife blades

WAVY

WAVY BLADES

As one of Simmons’ premier slicing blades, the Wavy Edge blade provides a nearly dust-free cut through low-density foams. It is also very effective at penetrating material, making it suitable for cutting some medium-density foams.

Curved V-Tooth bandsaw blades

V-TOOTH

V-TOOTH

As a more aggressive alternative to our Knife and Scallop Edge blades, the V-Tooth bandsaw blade is ideal for cutting through a wide range of foam types. It’s also a great blade to start with if you’re in the foam fabrication industry and aren’t quite sure what you’re looking for. The blade’s teeth work to penetrate material, which provides a faster cut than a standard Knife Edge blade while still creating minimal dust or waste. V-Tooth blades also eliminate the need for a sharpening or grinding system within your cutting machinery.

Curved C-Tooth bandsaw blades

C-TOOTH

C-TOOTH

If you’re cutting firm or dense foams, you should consider using our C-Tooth blade. A more aggressive option than our V-Tooth blade, the vertical edge of the C-Tooth is designed to enter the product first, providing a precise, clean cut. The shape of the teeth also allows you to run C-Tooth blades in the opposite direction for a gentler slicing action.

Curved Razorback bandsaw blades

RAZORBACK

RAZORBACK

Since Simmons first combined the cutting action of our V-Tooth blade with the slicing action of our Scallop blade, the Razorback blade has become a fast favorite of the foam fabrication industry. The Razorback produces less dust than more aggressive blades while still providing the penetration needed to cut through medium-density foams.

Curved Simcor bandsaw blades

SIMCOR®

SIMCOR

The Simcor® blade was created in response to customers requesting a blade that was effective at cutting through heavy or dense foam and cardboard products. Since then, it’s become a fast favorite for converters of bubble wrap and other packaging materials wrapped around a cardboard core. It’s also proved to be an incredibly effective bone and tissue processing blade.

Five curved CNC blades with different edge types

CNC

CNC

Simmons offers cut-to-length CNC blades for oscillating machinery, welded CNC band blades for continuous band saws, and coils of CNC material for those looking to cut or weld their own blades. Simmons provides CNC blades in several edge types, including Knife, V-Tooth, V-Tooth Flat, and Micro-A. Finding the “right” CNC blade depends on the needs of your foam cutting operations.

Three curved Wire blades

WIRE

WIRE

Wire blades are used to cut intricate patterns and shapes out of foam, rock wool, foam glass, and other materials. Wire blades consist of several individual strands of wire wrapped around an inner core of wire strands. The outer wire wrap forms a pattern. The specific pattern that wires are wrapped in is what makes the blade more abrasive or less abrasive. The more abrasive the Wire blade, the more aggressive the cut when the blade is pulled through its respective application.

APEX

APEX

Upon a first glance at the Apex blade, you’ll find the design looks similar to Simmons’ Scallop blade. The main difference between the two is that Apex blades utilize a straight grind. In comparison, the gullets of a Scallop blade are individually ground to slice through material with less effort and result in a cleaner finish. However, the Apex blade’s carbon steel makeup still offers a more penetrative cut than both Knife Edge and V-Tooth blades.

Curved Special Notch blades

SPECIAL NOTCH

SPECIAL NOTCH

Special Notch blades are modified versions of Simmons’ Knife Edge blades. The angular notches along the edge of the blade provide greater material penetration while maintaining the same clean cut. Special Notch blades can be used in machinery with or without knife grinders. However, machinery with functional knife grinders will resharpen and further extend the life of the blade.
