Oreland, PA, September 02, 2011 — A wide range of precision slitting blades for cellophane overwrap machines and other industrial equipment is available from Philadelphia Carbide Company, suburban Philadelphia manufacturer of wear and machine parts.

Philadelphia Carbide slitting blades, made from tungsten carbide, have been used in the cigar manufacturing industry for cutting cellophane wraps and in many other industries as well. In addition to tungsten carbide, the Oreland, PA-based company manufactures cutting blades from virtually any material, including tool steels, stainless steel, carbon steels and ceramics. Their specialty, however, is tungsten carbide. Philadelphia Carbide specialty cutting blades have a surface finish of up to 2 RMS and a service life of more than 100 times that of steel blades, according to Rocky DeCarlo, president.

“Many manufacturing operations today subject processing equipment to tremendously harsh service conditions,” noted DeCarlo. “These conditions necessarily take a toll in wear, corrosion and abrasion on typical production equipment. Tungsten carbide, which is known for its wear resistance and hardness. has emerged as a cost-effective alternative for cutting blades and many other replacement parts.”

All parts manufactured by Philadelphia Carbide are customized to customers’ exact specification. In the course of production, all parts are subjected to extensive quality control measures to ensure compliance with technical specifications—starting from certification to ensure the purity and physical properties of the raw materials, through rigid manufacturing controls, to advanced measurement capabilities of the final product.

Other related services offered by Philadelphia Carbide are the application of wear- and corrosion-resistant coatings and the re-sharpening of cutting tools.
