Foil blades

For each foil
the matching high performance blade.

No two films are the same. Some are tough and elastic at the same time. In others, additives were processed. And third parties must be able to withstand impact loads and lateral forces.

Or in other words, film production is an absolute high-performance process. And that means high-performance blades are also required for this. For years, LUTZ BLADES has been supplying leading foil manufacturers with excellent blades. Among others, we offer replacement blades for the following machine manufacturers: Starlingen®, Kampf®, Windmöller + Hölscher®.

Whether as a razor blade, a 3-hole blade, a carbide blade, a ceramic blade or an exact special shape according to the customer’s drawing: We process different types of steel, carbides and ceramics and adjust our blades precisely to the user’s specific cutting task in terms of material, heat treatment and cutting geometry.

The wide range of materials for our blades

Our product portfolio offers you blades in thicknesses between 0.06 – 3.0 mm and with final hardnesses between 40 – 85 HRc. You also have a wide choice in our material program:


Carbon steels

Rust resistant and stainless steels

High-performance high-speed steels (HSS)

Tool steels

Hard metals


The versatile coating program
for our blades


Standard hard material with high wear resistance and relatively high coefficient of friction (against reference material steel approx. 0.4 to 0.7), usually gold-colored, safe application range up to approx. 300 °C.


Has greater oxidation resistance than TiN with comparable coefficient of friction, usually anthracite blue.

Blueing / Blackening

Applied over the entire surface, light corrosion and starch protection, also serves as a distinguishing aid.

Teflon® (PTFE)

Teflon® non-stick coating (PTFE); due to the very low surface tension, practically no foreign bodies stick to the cutting edge, resistant to acids and alkalis; significantly reduced frictional resistance; the very low static friction allows jerk-free cutting (therefore very suitable for the medical sector); low wear resistance; not suitable for contact with sodium and at temperatures above 250 °C.


Has lower wear resistance than TiN with significantly lower coefficient of friction (against reference material steel approx. 0.3 to 0.5), usually anthracite colored.


With a wear resistance similar to TiN, but denser structure (morphology) than TiN and thus greater resistance to pitting under appropriate load, usually steel colored.


Has lower wear resistance than TiN. Advantage of CrN: lower residual stresses than TiN. Therefore partially useful for applications with high bending load.


Intermediate coating material between the high wear resistance of TiN and the low coefficient of friction of TiC, relative position between TiN and TiC depending on the ratio of C and N, usually anthracite color.


Has high wear resistance with low coefficient of friction (approx. 0.1 against reference material steel); susceptible to impact loads and high temperatures (between 100 and 300 °C depending on structure).

Color varnish

Applied over the entire surface, serves as a sorting aid for different material thicknesses and as corrosion protection.
