Here at Sheffield Gauge Plate, we pride ourselves on our high-quality steel products, including Elga Guillotine Blades. We have been manufacturing and supplying machine blades and steel for over 40 years, meaning you can have faith in our abilities and resulting products.
Guillotine machines play an important role across numerous industries, but consistent and repetitive use will inevitably dull the guillotine blades over time. With the cost of machinery so high, we know how important it is to carry out regular maintenance to protect your investment for years to come.
Sharpening your guillotine blades is a suitable option for repairing the damage they go through; however, it is not a permanent solution. In order to keep your operations running as standard, you will need to replace the guillotine blades regularly. To aid you in this, we stock a wide range of guillotine blades suitable for various machines, including Elga.

Guillotine Blades for Elga Machines
Due to the intense nature of the work they go through, it’s vital to create guillotine blades from the highest-quality steel available. As we manufacture and supply a wide range of tool steels across the globe, we have the best materials available for guillotine blade production.
Usually, guillotine blades are made from tool steels like 420, A2, or D2. They are well-known for their hardness and their ability to retain a sharp edge, which is exactly what you need from a guillotine blade. Our entire range of steel types are available, should you require different physical or chemical properties.

Elga Hydrashear Guillotine Blades
Elga machines are some of the most well-known and well-used guillotine machines available today. In the many years they have been available, they’ve earned themselves a trusted position as a household name in the metalworking industry.
With mostly used models available online today, it’s important to properly maintain your Elga guillotines to ensure they continue to perform well in the future. Regularly replacing your Elga guillotine blades will ensure high levels of accuracy are maintained.
How often do Elga guillotine blades need replacing?
Ultimately there is no right or wrong answer to this question. Essentially the length of time that Elga guillotine blades will last you depends upon a number of factors. These include the frequency of usage, the types of materials you’re using it to cut through, and the thickness of these materials, to name a few.
As Elga machines are used in the metalworking industry, it’s fair to assume they will blunt much faster than a guillotine blade used to cut softer materials like cardboard. The more frequently the blade is used, the duller its edge will become.
Rather than placing a time frame on it, it’s much more appropriate to look out for the telltale signs of worn guillotine blades, including:
- failure to cut through a material entirely
- a reduction in the quality of cuts
- a longer time taken to make cuts
If you’ve noticed these signs whilst using your Elga machines, then it’s time to replace them. You can order your replacement Elga guillotine blades from us today by calling 0114 233 5291 or emailing the team at [email protected] to place your order now.

Can Elga guillotine blades be sharpened?
Yes, of course. All guillotine blades can be sharpened multiple times before they need replacing. We offer a professional Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service designed to keep your machines running for longer whilst also minimising downtime of your projects.
As discussed, sharpening your guillotine blades will only ever be a temporary solution. Continuous sharpening becomes completely pointless after roughly 5-8 times as the edge will never be as sharp as it once was.
