When knife sharpening is necessary
Regardless of what metal the blades of knives are made of, sooner or later they become blunt. This process occurs in contact with such hard objects as ossicles, bones, tendons, sand particles, glass surfaces of boards, etc. In addition, knives can become blunt also if stored incorrectly. Another factor is the constant washing of knives in hot water.
Bringing the blade into perfect condition is possible only with the help of a professional machine. Such equipment is characterized by the presence of various bars for sharpening. For larger-scale work, belt-grinding machines are used. They are applicable mainly in large-scale production. It is noteworthy that it is enough to connect the machine to an outlet and start working. Before use, it is important to carefully study the instructions, but it is better to undergo special training. This, in particular, applies to professional knife sharpening machines. At ADEMS, you can get training in sharpening various knives at a convenient time for you.
The main advantages of knife sharpening machines include:
- Processing a large number of tools in a fairly fast time;
- Providing high quality sharpening;
- Preventing the risk of edge deformation (even if the blade is made of soft metal);
- Work with various types of knives;
- Practicality and safety.
Thanks to a well-thought-out design, the machines allow you to change the sharpening angle, which is especially important, because you have to work with a different shape and design of the knife. On the other hand, professional equipment is equipped with a reliable attachment, thanks to which the required angle is maintained throughout the sharpening.
How to use knife sharpening machines
The first and most important rule is to observe the angle of sharpening during the entire period of work with the knife. Therefore, before starting sharpening, you should install the base of the knife as securely as possible. Then, it is necessary to observe the smoothness of movement, otherwise abrupt actions can damage the surface of the blade.
After you have used the machine, it is recommended to wipe the abrasive. And before using it again, you also need to wipe the sharpened blades.
