Carbide Paper Cutter Blades VS HSS Paper Cutter Blades

Published On: August 3, 2020

Not only for paper cutting

A paper cutter blade is also called a paper cutting blade, a paper slitting-cut blade, a paper cutting circular blade, or a full-sheet paper cutting blade. It is widely used in papermaking, printing, packaging, and many other industries.

The cutter blades are composite rolling and can be used for general cutting. The original grains are more refined and resistant to chipping. There is no transition between the blade body and the cutter, there are no defects such as gaps, the blade is not peeled off, and the service life is guaranteed longer.

Paper cutter blades are suitable for all kinds of paper cutting, such as toilet paper, cardboard, toilet paper tube, high gram coated paper, and so on. The blades of our tungsten carbide cutter are worn, the blades are flat, sharp, and stable, and the cutting quality is accurate and smooth.

Carbide or HSS? It is a question.

According to the process materials, the cutter blades on the market are mainly divided into two types:
High-speed steel cutting blade
Tungsten Carbide cutting blade

If you are in the puzzle of which to choose: HSS paper cutting knives or Tungsten carbide paper cutting knives, suggestions below may you take into consideration.

The advantages of our carbide paper cutting blades

Paper cutter blades have extremely high precision requirements because the high-precision blades can cut more smooth and flat paper with no burr. Compared with cemented carbide, the precision of HSS is lower. HSS blades cannot be sharply sharpened, and are easily broken. High-speed steel blades can hardly meet the standards of super precision, and their service life is shorter.

Tungsten carbide blades are more wear-resistant than HSS blades, have a longer service life, and have a finer carbide material with sharper blades. Compared with ordinary steel or high-speed steel, tungsten carbide blades can be re-sharpened, and can also be maintained with a long service time.


Our company has been deeply involved in the field of cemented carbide tools for 22 years. We have been specializing in the production of various standard specifications of paper cutter blades and other customized sizes of custom paper cutter blades. Rich industry experience and complete production testing equipment ensure that our tools are more durable, wear-resistant, accurate, smooth, and high-quality.
