Paper and Plastic Cutting Tools

Burcas ltd is a leading global manufacturer of guillotine knives for the paper, printing and converting industry

Why choose Burcas?

Many of the dust and wear problems in the paper industry are caused by poor quality slitting. Burcas has produced dramatic improvements in knife life, quality of cut and dust reduction by using the whole spectrum of available materials – Tungsten carbide, Ceramic, High Speed Steel and Powder Steels – and ensuring efficient cutting angles, surface finish and flatness. Our knives achieve longer life between regrinds which dramatically decreases down time in production.

We supply knives for makes and models of paper cutting machines and we can usually supply straight from stock or on very low lead times so please contact us for more information.
