Aluminum, non-ferrous metals

With extensive expertise and practical application, DIENES develops products for its customers which allow aluminium and non-ferrous metals to be cut at the highest level while saving time and cost. As the world's leading manufacturer of industrial slitting tools, we take all the relevant parameters into account. With our razor blade knives, shear cut knives and rotary shear knives along with our knife holders, we enable aluminium foils and non-ferrous metals to be precisely shaped, even when they have a thickness of only a few microns or are in two layers. Tolerances of down to 0,5 µm can even be provided on request.

Circular knives

For the processing of aluminium and non-ferrous metals, DIENES offers innovative top knives with specially polished surfaces. These minimise the adhesion of material to the knife edges. Our bottom knives are equally impressive. These include individually driven knives and multiple knife blocks.

Straight knives

DIENES also produces innovative straight knives for processing steel.

Knife holders

DIENES shear cut knife holders are ideally suited for processing aluminium and NE-foil.

Slitting systems

We also develop matching slitting systems for our customers in the aluminium foil processing industry.

You will find more information on our circular knives, straight knives, rotary shear knives, knife holders and slitting systems on the appropriate pages. We would be pleased to provide you personally with further information on our applications for the precise cutting of aluminium and non-ferrous metals and the development of individual solutions. You will find our contact details and a contact form here.
