An independent test was recently conducted by a reputable cabinet shop in Victoria. Two identical saw blades (Dimar 80 tooth ATB) were purchased to determine the difference in cutting ability between blades sharpened with our older hydraulic sharpening machine (similar to those used by the other sharpening companies) versus blades sharpened with our new precision CNC machine.
Here are the results:
Linear feet cut per sharpening
(Based on actual cutting results)
Maximum number of sharpenings per blade (Calculated based on measuring carbide tips before and after sharpening and calculating # of sharpenings possible)
Putting it another way… here is the cost to cut 30,000 linear feet of melamine:
Saw blades required
Total blade cost ($130 per blade)
(Using $27 per sharpening)
Labour cost to change blades
($18 per hr. allowing 5 minutes per change)
In conclusion, when using the CNC sharpening machine versus the hydraulic sharpening machine you:
