Cane knives are used in the sugar manufacturing process to prepare the sugarcane for the milling process.
At Crompion International, we manufacture our cane knives with high strength steel capable of handling high levels of cyclic loads, mitigating failure modes such as fracture and yielding during operation.
Factories use the cane knife tips as attachments to the cane knife bases to extend their life cycle. Tips are secured to the bases through welding to avoid any separation during the operation of the equipment.
We manufacture our cane knife tips of a bimetallic composite that provides excellent abrasion and impact resistance. The composite consists of a high-chromium cast iron, bonded to a mild steel backing plate. The high chromium portion withstands high abrasion and high impact, while the mild steel backing plate allows smooth welding to the cane knife.
