Edge Dressing

Your Material Your Way


Cutting Risks & Cutting Costs


Edge Dressing


During the production process of strip and coil, the edge of the material develops a sharp edge, commonly referred to as a burr.  This sharp edge has both safety and manufacturing implications.   The burr poses a potential health and safety hazard and the material can be more difficult to work with, increasing manufacturing time and ultimately costs.  Edge Dressing helps minimise these risks and provides a cost effective and safe solution to manufacturers.

The Knight Group offers manufacturers the flexibility to choose the processing that meets your needs and we can supply material edge-dressed to your specifications.  Whether you need the commonly requested rounded or square edge shapes or you need a contoured edge shape tailored specifically to you, we offer the Edge Dressing profile you need.  We design and use Bespoke Tungsten Carbide Tooling to meet the most exacting Custom Edge Dressing  requirements on Precision Strip.

With the heavy investment in our bespoke machinery and a wealth of experience in our team, our machines can offer precision processing in high volumes, with fast turnaround times.
