Technical 3Y-TZP Cutters for the Textiles Industry

Clean Cuts with Yttrium-reinforced Zirconium Oxide Ceramics

High endurance, consistently neat cuts, no fiber-pinching or backlashing of fiber within the cutting angle zone of the shears – these are just a few of the many benefits of using zirconium oxide cutters in the production process.

Technical 3Y-TZP Cutters for Industrial Applications Shears, Blades, Knives and Circular Cutters from CeramTec

CeramTec has developed a high-performance yttrium-reinforced zirconium oxide ceramic (TZP) for cutting yarns and textiles. It stands out from other materials with its extremely high cutting edge strength and excellent flexural strength and hardness. The use of 3Y-TZP cutters improves efficiency in cutting textile threads, which ultimately increases profitability.

The number of applications in the textile industry ranges from splicers, suction tube and residual thread cutters for winding machines, to end thread and diagonal cutters for looms. Technical cutters made of reinforced zirconium oxide ceramics are the standard material of choice in many machines and applications.

Technical Advantages of 3Y-TZP Zirconium Oxide Cutters:

  • Faster cutting rates
  • Consistently good cutting quality, e.g. improved strength of spliced connections
  • No corrosion
  • Smooth running
  • Extended maintenance intervals
  • Universal cleaning possibilities using acids, alkaline solutions and organic solvents

Expanding Areas of Application for Ceramic Cutters

The range of applications for these ceramic cutters is always expanding. In addition to their use in the textile industry, 3Y-TZP cutters are already used as shears, blades, knives or circular cutters in these industries as well:

  • Medicine
  • Food and beverage production
  • Automotive
