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.
Recommended cutting applications for C-Tooth blades:
- Medium-density foam
- High-density foam
- Packaging materials
- Plastic film
- Aluminum honeycomb
- Filter media
Consistently delivering high-quality blades has been key to Simmons’ success throughout the years. As part of our reliable welds guarantee, if a Simmons blade breaks at the weld, just let us know and we’ll replace that blade for you.
We stand behind our workmanship, and even when we’re not at fault for blade issues, we frequently invest in analyzing the cause of the blade’s failure in order to educate our customers and help them correct the source of the issue in their facility.

As part of our C-Tooth blade production process, Simmons offers an additional option to harden the cutting edge of the blade in order to extend overall blade life.
*Does not apply to double edge blades.*
Standard C-Tooth blades are available in 10 and 14 TPI, but if you’re looking for a more aggressive cut, we recommend a blade with less TPI. While it may sound counterintuitive, a lower TPI results in a bigger tooth, and a blade with bigger teeth slices more aggressively through dense or rigid foams (and other applications).
C-Tooth blades are also available in 4, 6, and 8 TPI, and Simmons can produce special tooth configurations for custom applications upon request.
