A sharp machine knife is often the heart of a processing machine; however, it is also a wearing part. The achievable sharpness & service life depends on several factors: Type & structure of the steel, the hardening process, the cutting geometry, the grinding process and the straightening process.
CU is an B2B online ordering platform exclusively focused on razor sharp machine knives and cutting solutions for industrial or commercial use. CU-Product deliveries are made directly to the end user without costly detours. The brand names of machine manufacturers marked with * on this platform are not associated with CUTTING UNITED GmbH; rather, they are used to better identify the appropriate spare part.
The sourcing of the products takes place within a pool of efficient and modern machine knife producers from the EU. To ensure consistently high product quality, CU has set the highest manufacturing standards for each type of knife available in the store, which are regularly checked and ensured by our engineers. CU customers are end users from various industries: Food, Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Printing.
Maximum transparency in pricing
You control the final product price through demand quantities. Our expertise ensures that you find the perfect match of quality, delivery time and price at CU.
First Class product
We combine Quality First and Customer First. By consistently monitoring our manufacturing processes, we ensure the quality that is important to our customers. By purchasing and using CU-PremiumQualityProducts, the manufacturing process becomes your point of value – because machines that run longer save you time and money.
Fastest possible delivery & Easy reordering
We reduce your inventory costs for spare parts because our store items are shipped promptly via UPS/DHL. Custom made items (special requests) are made by appointment.
If you have already ordered an item from CU, it is stored in your personal order history. Alternatively you can use the "CU-AGAIN-CARD", which is attached to every article. This simplifies re-ordering and speeds up spare parts delivery.
Process & Material Compliance
We guarantee maximum process & material compliance. I.e. we ensure that environmental standards and human rights are respected. What do we mean by this? That environmentally harmful application processes such as low-cost salt bath hardening are categorically not used for CU products. Our products are produced in all stages of the value chain within the EU. We therefore stand for fair and safe working conditions!
All steels used are produced in Western Europe. Only in this way can we be completely "material-compliant" and meet our high quality standards. CU already complies with the National Action Plan for Business and Human Rights (NAP) of the Federal Government of Germany.
CU-PremiumQualityProducts are honest products!
