Replacement blades are a necessity to any operation involving frequent cutting or scraping. Therefore, a replacement blade should perform efficiently because it must also be both economical in price and high in quality. Depending on your operations, replacement blades should either be highly effective or durable if not both. Sometimes the same blade design but in a different material like stainless steel can be more advantageous in your process flow verses for example a lower priced carbon steel version. These are always considerations one should have when choosing a blade to keep your processes flowing and profits growing.
Replacement blades can also refer to a secondary blade that is sufficient to use when your primary option is discontinued or delayed. So, it is important to have a resilient supply chain and multiple options. Accomplishing that is the hallmark of an adaptable and prepared team. At the Razor Blade Company, we are prepared to offer replacement blades and work with our customers to test and approve new blades to your existing process. Sourcing a replacement blade at the right price is the goal here as replacement blades will usually be more expensive since your primary choice is unavailable. To try best to avoid this issue from the start it is important to try and select mass-produced blades, work with a recommended supplier, and avoid high-priced custom-made razor blades when possible.
