Sharp blades produced better
Clean shaven in the middle east
For razor blades you need extra hard metal. Customers in the Middle East also want to have cheap, clean and safe razors. For manufacturers, this means constantly optimizing the production process. Silveredge produces hundreds of thousands of blades per year in Egypt, relying on powerful machines from Eisenmann in Germany.
Eisenmann anneals razor bladesThe pull-through hardening plant for Egypt is being built by Eisenmann Thermal Solutions GmbH & Co. KG near Göttingen. In it, the metal is heated to 1,230 °C and then cooled at -80 °C in a new, patented cooling section. The blade is finally sealed with Teflon and, therefore, it is better protected against germs.
New production process perfectly integrated
The software specialist from Buck Engineering programmed the PLC for the Teflon coating and then integrated the new process directly into the system at Eisenmann in Böblingen. After two months of good cooperation with Eisenmann's process engineers, the electrical design, software programming and commissioning were completed. The hardening plant now provides for the final customer in Egypt even higher quality razor blades.
