Wavy Scallop Edge Blades Last up to 35% Longer Than Standard Bevel Edge Blades for Tough Industrial Cutting Applications

Southbridge, MA - Utilizing proprietary manufacturing processes, Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS) has engineered a line of professional-grade blades which deliver more aggressive cutting action for greater performance in the field. Hyde Wavy Scallop Edge Blades combine the ability to cut tough materials with a longer blade life to outperform standard beveled edge blades on individual or longer production jobs.

Hyde Wavy Scallop Edge Blades can be used in numerous industrial applications such as the cutting of reinforced hydraulic hose and rubber belting. Unlike abrasive wheels, which remove material while hacking a path while cutting and generate heat, smoke and debris that can contaminate hydraulic cutting systems, these blades slice cleanly through the work eliminating large volumes of waste. These durable blades are also used in food processing for poultry and other meats and the converting of packaging materials into finished products.

Designed with sharpened recessed curves along their edge, Hyde Wavy Scallop Edge Blades feature sharp "points" at the leading edge of the cut to offer more linear cutting surface than a standard beveled-edge. Scallops on a blade's edge improve its cutting ability by providing single point penetration into the work being cut. At the same time, the center of effort shifts around each scallop, introducing a wide range of cut angles to the material being cut. It is this "rocking" motion that increases the aggressiveness of the blade's cutting action. Because of this feature, scallop edge blades are able to cut tougher materials more effectively than standard beveled-edge blades.

Starting with a wide range of the highest grade steels, Hyde employs proprietary processes in blanking, laser cutting, heat treating, grinding and polishing to ensure superior cutting performance of each individual blade. Manufactured in facilities with ISO 9001:2008 plant certification, durable Hyde IBS Wavy Scallop Blades are engineered for long-life.

Backed by 135 years of experience, Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions is a leading producer of industrial knives and blades for a wide variety of markets including food processing, cloth and textile and leather, hose and tube, tire and rubber, package converting, paper and packaging and abrasives as well as for general industrial applications. Hyde Tools, Inc. is the largest manufacturer of industrial machine and hand knives and tools for remodeling, restoration, building trades and do-it-yourselfers in North America.
