Knife Sharpening and Refurbishing Services for Industrial Machine Blades

Bring life back to dull edges to optimize your cutting operation and reduce costs by sharpening your industrial knives and blades.

Great Lakes Industrial Knife offers professional industrial knife and blade sharpening, refurbishing, and sub-contract grinding services at a level you cannot get from a general machine shop. With two dozen state-of-the art German engineered CNC grinders, our facility is one of the largest sharpeners in the Midwest.When we sharpen and refurbish knives, they are matched to new knife tolerances to ensure that the performance of your knife remains consistent. Our deep understanding of abrasives allows us to choose the correct combination of wheels and segments for your material, which produces a superior cutting edge.Companies without this experience and/or the right equipment can easily burn the steel, making the edges brittle. A “clean-up pass” is often used to cover up the error, which can further affect your knife’s performance.

We sharpen a broad array of machine knives including:

  • Carbide Machine Knives
  • Ledger Knives
  • Pulverizer Segments
  • Circular Slitter Knives
  • Machine Ways
  • Score & Perforation Knives
  • Core Cutters
  • Paper Trimmer Knives
  • Shear Knives
  • Dish Slitter Knives
  • Paper Trimmer Knives

  • Granulator Knives
  • Pelletizer Rotor Knives
  • Skiver Knives
