Crafts Technology has been producing high-precision cutting components such as blades, knives, anvils, slitters, and many other cutting implements from super-hard materials for the non-woven industry for more than 100 years. Crafts specializes in high-precision tungsten carbide cutting implements that are typically used to cut non-woven materials, such as those found in diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products including consumer goods, aerospace and automotive industries.
In the production of diapers, wipes and other feminine hygiene products, global manufacturers are looking to increase processing speeds and reduce the Total Cost of Ownership.
Super-hard materials and innovative blade designs are the key to minimizing the Total Cost of Ownership. We develop collaborative relationships with Fortune 100 end-user companies that want to maximize their production, and we partner with the highest quality OEMs focused on minimizing the TCO for end-users of their equipment.
Extended wear life is absolutely critical to production so that uptime is maximized and production time is minimized on multi-million-dollar Automatic Fiber Placement (AFP) machines and Composite Tape Laying Machines (CTLM).
Leaving these high value machines idle due to unnecessary or premature tool wear is not an option. Crafts Technology has been producing precision cutting components, cutting tools, knives, and other parts for use in the production of composite tape and the fabrication of composite materials since the early 1970s, when McDonnell Douglas was developing composites to reduce the weight of fighter aircraft.
We continue this tradition and leverage our legacy of experience in the aerospace industry, contributing to the efforts of the major aircraft producers to standardize composite technology on new generation commercial aircraft. Crafts Technology develops cutting components and implements to provide maximum value-add to our customers as they look to improve their competitiveness.
