SuperSharp – technology kit for the production of industrial knives

The research project is funded by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia using funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020 “Investments in growth and jobs”.

The project aims to research a technology kit and an associated manufacturing process for the economical manufacture of industrial knives with a focus on the food industry.

Technologically, the innovation relies on the resource-efficient incremental pressure rolling process in combination with a new material technology for martensitic stainless steels. Technology modules with a characteristic value system for the product properties should above all show cost-efficient production methods.

DynaWeld processes the simulative mapping of the manufacturing process consisting of:

Press rolling the knives
Induction heating for hot press rolling
Induction hardening

DynaWeld is developing a method for predictive material data determination based on material simulation with JMatPro.
