Guillotine Blades for SIMAT Machines
Guillotine blades go through a lot of hard work, resulting in wear and tear and dulling. In order to keep them sharp for the longest time possible, it’s important to create guillotine blades from high-quality tool steel. Thanks to our wide range of tool steels, we have all the best materials available to produce long-lasting guillotine blades.
Because of their ability to retain an edge and their high hardness values, tool steels like 420, A2, and D2 are often used for the manufacturing of guillotine blades. However, if you’re looking for alternative properties in your guillotine blades, we have a wide range of tool steels to choose from.

SIMAT Hydraulic Guillotine Blades
SIMAT machines are widely known across the metal and sheet working industries. SIMAT have been around for many years, providing innovative technologies and machinery to businesses across the globe.
As anyone in the industry knows, guillotine machines don’t come cheap. Many businesses opt for second-hand over new to reduce their costs, which means that your machinery requires more maintenance than usual to keep them in tip-top condition. By regularly replacing your SIMAT guillotine blades, you can increase its life expectancy and ensure high levels of accuracy are maintained.
How often do SIMAT guillotine blades need replacing?
It’s almost impossible to place an accurate time frame on how long your guillotine blades will remain sharp, as the answer depends on a number of factors. For example, the thickness of materials being cut through, the types of material being cut through, the number of cuts made, etc., will all affect how long your blades remain sharp.
Instead of placing a time frame on it, we like to recommend that you look out for the following signs of wear and tear that will signify when it’s time to replace them.
- An increase in the time taken to make cuts successfully
- Failure to fully cut through the intended material
- A significant reduction in the quality of the cuts made
If you’ve noticed any of the signs listed above whilst using your SIMAT guillotine machine, then it’s time to replace the blades. Place your order for SIMAT guillotine blades today by calling 0114 233 5291 or emailing the team at [email protected].

Can SIMAT guillotine blades be sharpened?
All guillotine blades can be sharpened, including those for SIMAT branded machinery. To help you do so safely and effectively, we offer a professional Guillotine Blade Sharpening Service. Sharpening your blades is a quick fix to keep your operations running and reduce downtime in the meanwhile.
However, it’s important to remember that sharpening your guillotine blades is not a permanent fix. Most guillotine blades can only be sharpened around 5-8 times; any more than that, and they will no longer be effective and need replacing entirely.
