Veneer Slicing, Veneer Peeling / Lathe Blades

Slicing and peeling operations can be the most challenging tasks in a mill. A good blade must have a unique combination of toughness and wear resistance to meet the quality standards of your slicing and peeling operations.

Kinetic’s Veneer Blades’ premium chipper steel composition, combined with precise through-hardening processes result in knives that are wear-resistant and tough for your veneering needs.

  • Flawless design and sharper edges increase uptime.
  • Quality manufacture means better cuts, from the first use through last regrinding.

Solid, single piece Cr Plus chipper steel blades leave no stains on veneers, which is particularly important when processing oak veneers.

Chipper Knives

Chipper Blades do the dirty work in the wood industry. They are used in less than perfect environments. Kinetic’s Chipper Knives are available in a selection of premium quality tool steels, depending upon your specific application.

  • Through-hardened and double tempered steel will maximize knife life while providing consistent, clean cuts.
  • Selection of premium steels for optimized performance.
  • Quality standards in our manufacturing processes ensure that our products meet your needs.

T Babbitt Adjustable Lathe Blades

Kinetic has developed and patented a new and easy to use lathe blade height adjustment system called the “T Babbitt System”.

  • Improved safety: reduces or eliminates the need for hot babbitts and special tools to adjust lathe blade heights after regrinding.
  • Decreased blade set-up time: patented T slot allows fast and accurate height positioning.
  • Reliable: once the T Babbitt System is set to the size needed for the lathe, it will not shrink or move.

The patented T Babbitt System is being used at major plywood mills and has proven to be reliable, simple, and safe to use.

Kinetic OSB Blades Provide Consistent, Quality Flakes

Kinetic’s Oriented Strand Board (OSB) blades are made from premium quality tool steel for maximum durability and wear resistance. Our material, combined with our proprietary in-house heat treating processes, provides the right balance of toughness and wear resistance to ensure consistent, quality flakes for your application.

• Perfect tolerances and beveled angles parallel to blades’ back edge provide superior flakes.

• Tapped holes keep blades free from debris.

• Mirror finish aids in producing flawless flakes.

Let us supply you with the best OSB Blades so you can spend more time making flakes… the difference is visible!
