About Our Blades

What makes AccuTec’s blades different from other blades?
AccuTec Blades designs and engineers precision blades. We anticipate customer needs, understand critical performance requirements, choose metals and alloys with the right properties, and grind, cut and coat to exact specifications.

What is the difference between 2 Facet and 3 Facet?
Precision-ground two-facet blades balance sharpness and durability, qualities which are especially important when cutting through tough fibers and materials. Ultra sharp three-facet blades cut with greater precision and are ideal for intricate cuts. Learn more on our edges and angles page.

What is the difference between carbon and stainless steel blades?
Blades are composed of two common iron alloys: carbon steel and stainless steel. Carbon steel is manufactured from iron strengthened with carbon. Stainless steel also incorporates chromium to prevent corrosion. Learn more on our metals page.

What is a degreased blade?
A degreased blade is processed through our degreasing treatment whereby any oils, grease and other contaminants are removed. Learn more on our coatings page.

What does “cleanroom-ready” mean?
Cleanroom-ready indicates that the blades are washed, and the packaging is ready for immediate use in any cleanroom environment
