New circular knife from Kyocera Unimerco reduces downtime

With a longer life span and less need for grinding, the new Uni-X circular knife limits downtime and reduces waste in production.

Equipment that cuts costs is in demand in the fish processing industry. This includes durable knives for cutting machines to reduce waste.

'The industry demands cost-effective solutions, and a knife that remains sharp supports this. It enables a cut closer to the fish bone, thus reducing waste and cutting costs, while ensuring a high quality end product,' says Hanne-Mette Christensen, Export Manager at Kyocera Unimerco.

Less grinding saves time

A new composition of materials makes the Uni-X knife stronger compared to traditional stainless steel knives. Therefore, it can be used for longer periods without regrinding. When eventually ground, the process is much faster.


'Some of our customers have used the Uni-X for 170 hours without regrinding, resulting in fewer stops in production.' 


'Furthermore, only a small amount of the knife is removed when ground. This reduces wear on the knife, giving it a longer life span and making it quicker to regrind,' Hanne-Mette Christensen says.

Kyocera Unimerco will be exhibiting at the Pavilion of Denmark at SPG in Brussels. Meet them in Hall 4, Stand 6015.
