Suppose sharp and functioning guillotine blades are vital for your day-to-day operations. In that case, you’ll know how damaging it can be once they become dull. Unfortunately, guillotine shears will inevitably blunt over time due to the tasks they fulfil.
Therefore, proper maintenance and regular blade replacements are necessary to keep your machinery running as efficiently as possible. Sharpening your guillotine blades is also an option, but it’s only a temporary fix. Replacing your guillotine blades is unavoidable if you want to prevent downtime and keep your operations running as they should.

When Do K&B Guillotine Blades Need Replacing?
It can be difficult to place a specific time frame on the lifetime of guillotine blades, as it ultimately depends upon a number of factors. Such factors include how regularly you’re using your K&B guillotine machine to make cuts, how thick the materials you’re cutting through are, and the type of metal you’re working on.
Instead of saying your guillotine blades will need replacing after six weeks, ten weeks, or even six months, we prefer to show you the typical signs of wear to look out for. The following signs will help you identify when your guillotine blades need replacing:
- An inability to fully cut through materials you can usually cut through successfully.
- The time taken for cuts to be completed has increased significantly.
- The quality of your cuts is much poorer than usual.
If one or more of these signs are evident on your K&B guillotine, then it’s highly likely that your current guillotine blades are damaged or have dulled. In this case, it’s time to order your replacement K&B Guillotine Blades from Sheffield Gauge Plate today.

To aid you in doing so safely, the team here at Sheffield Gauge Plate offer a professional Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service. By sharpening your guillotine blades, you can reduce downtime and keep your operations running smoothly for longer.
However, it is worth mentioning that guillotine blades can only be sharpened a few times before the process becomes ineffective.
