Martor 614 blade - a special trapezoid blade with 2 short cutting sides
Sollex 950 or also known as Martor 614 is a trapezoid blade with grinding on the blade's short angled sides. It is a two edged, single sided, double bevel blade for industrial usage. A Martor blade differs from a regular trapezoid blade in that it has 2 sides of the trapezoid blade instead of 1 long lower side sharpened.
Given that the angle of attack of this blade is 38 degrees in relation to the material to be cut, it is ideal for cutting the material crosswise. Thanks to the blade's sturdy locking capabilities, you don't have to press it against the blade as with most other types of blades. Thus, a clear space advantage is achieved compared to conventional blades.
The cutting performance of the Sollex 950 or Martor 614 industrial packaging knives is quite specific. It does not require very high speed, but thanks to the single-sided double bevel grinding conical sharpening you get a very fine cut, suitable for cutting off surplus material when joining rolls of material in packaging machines.
By design and performance, this trapezoidal blade works elegantly. However, for packaging knives, durability is the key issue for trouble-free maintenance. That's why Sollex coated the 950K blade with a ceramic coating, making it as durable as possible for a blade with a carbon steel core. So if your job is to cut materials like paper or plastic film with additives, use the trapezoidal razor blade 950K for durability.
