Proprietary CNC sharpening technology allows Cadence to precision sharpen pointed blades with razor-like edges in a pointed-tip configuration for added versatility and optimized cutting performance. Pointed tip blades can be best applied in applications that require:
- A sharp point to initiate a cut in a tough material
- The lowest possible penetration force
- A slit area of a given length, such as in piercing a slit in a rubber diaphragm
The cost of a pointed tip blade is incrementally higher than a blade having a simple straight edge, but the additional benefits noted above will often outweigh the marginal increase in cost.
