Grinding service
It is a completely natural process that knives & cutting tools lose their sharpness over the course of their lifetime. The consequences are a both a poor cutting result and cut edge quality of the cut material. In order to counteract these negative influences, it is recommended to regrind and maintain the cutting tools in time.

Our services at a glance:
  • Sharpening- and grinding service for:
  • Paper drills
  • Paper cutting knives
  • Multi-groove knife blicks
  • Unique and patented grinding technolgies for:
  • Circular knives
  • Paper cutting knives
  • Three way trimmer knives
Unique & patented grinding technologies: New Wave & Hyperwave

New Wave grinding technology:
New Wave grinded knives guarantee a better material flow and less dust formation. The result of the New Wave technology is a very homogeneous cutting edge with a much better and longer service life. In practice, the New Wave grinding achieves twice to three times the service life of conventional grinding techniques.

Hyperwave grinding technology:
The Hyperwave grinding technique is a combination of Hyperhone and New Wave. The result is a dust-reduced cut and better material flow with longer lifetimes. With the Hyperhone grinding technique, the cutting edge is rounded and secured against micro-blowouts during high-gloss polishing and in the final process step on both the cutting and the wafer side. The Hyperhone knife is deburred by machine and manual factors are completely eliminated. The New Wave knife is concave sharpened.

TKM Service offers for the printing and packaging industry

Our services are divided into repair and regrinding service as well as user advice and training on the customer's premises. For the efficient use of our products, we are not only available to our customers as a supplier and consultant, but also accompany them as a competent partner through all phases of their daily business. With the accurate advice of our specialists, we support our customers in the selection of the right tool for their individual application. ✔ User Advice & Training ✔ Regrinding Service ✔ Repair Service

User Advice
  • Actual state survey and technical advice
  • Development of a service concept
  • Service routing and sustainability
  • Documentation, analysis, research and development
Doctor Blade Analysis
TKM Meyer GmbH offers customers an analysis of their doctor blades. Different analyses, such as cross-sectional and doctor blade angle analysis, are performed. An exact doctor blade angle can be determined 100% bya doctor blade angle analysis only. Due to many influences on the printing machine, such as cylinder circumference, NIP, doctor blade pressure setting or hydrodynamic pressure, a determination of the doctor blade angle is very unreliable.

Training
On request, we also organise application-specific training courses at your premises. We take your special requirements into account and actively support you in improving quality, efficiency and economy - in all printing and finishing processes.

Training Topics
  • Application-specific training
  • Technical cutting seminars
  • Circular knife training courses
Repair Service
In addition to folding and counter-flaps, gripper bars and pads as well as traps are also processed. You can expect the TKM spare parts we repaired to have the same manufacturing tolerances as our newly manufactured parts. If required, we replace the Vulkollan® inserts or re-coat the surfaces with different ceramics or tungsten carbides. On demand, we support the reconditioning process with measurement reports, which record the condition of the component before and after the repair.

TKM Group App - We have the Solution for you!

Selling knives for the printing and paper producing industries is our specialty – we at TKM are doing so since 1908, after all. Since then, it has been our aspiration to perfectly support you as our customer. Thus nowadays not only our knives rank among the best the market has to offer, our service offerings turn us into your perfect partner.  

Thanks to our more than centennial experience, we know that in the printing industry, problems arising during the production can lead to serious losses in productivity and sales. This is why, from the beginning on, we do our utmost to nip these problems in the bud. The “perfect cut” can only be created mutually, hence we gladly share our collected knowledge with you. 

To offer you an all-around service experience, we specialized in different types of problem solving: Of course, you can always get into contact directly and schedule a face-to-face meeting or a seminar with our technicians.  But in certain cases, time is of the essence: we developed an app for you: the TKM Solution App Now you are able to get access to our concentrated know-how with a touch of your finger.  

The app is available for IOS and Android, currently in English, German, Spanish & French. Other languages are added continuously. You can use the app directly at your, or your customers, paper machine. Take a look at, for example, the cutting angle suggested, adjust the machine’s angle and be amazed at the increased productivity. 

Additionally, we offer the possibility to add to your knowledge directly at your desk. Our new website provides the Solution Finder. Here you can browse through the different industries and read all pieces that are of interest to you, or you can use our search function for targeted topics.

TKM Remote Services

A business trip to visit our customer? – Impossible! 
Having face-to-face conversations with purchasing agents or technicians, to present new products? – Please don’t! 
Customer Service directly at your paper machine? – Yes, with TKM! 

All of us, no matter if we are producer, agent, or customer service technician, are deeply impacted by Covid-19. For more than a year now, we are unable to perform “business as usual”. Well-maintained business partnerships had to bear this weight first, but by now, it might have also reached the quality of the finished product: Machine operators are missing the technical support of the knife professionals. 

Here at TKM, it has always been our aspiration to share our decades-old experience, may it concern the perfect cutting angle or any other, similarly complicated machine adjustments, with our customers. The current situation has kept us from supporting you and being able to offer our familiar service. We have been working at full speed behind the scenes to now proudly present you our solution: TKM’s Remote Service! 

Use your smartphone to “beam” our technician to your machine – live and without personal contact! Via your smartphone’s camera, our technician can see every little thing and is able to show you, even with pointers on the screen, how to properly adjust your knives. Let’s work together to create the perfect adjustment and increase your productivity. 

We were able to arouse your interest in our Remote Service? Please get into contact, our technicians are at your beck and call and will advise you optimally!
