Splitting band knives for the shoe and leather industry

We can produce band knives measuring from 2000 to 6000 mm.

We can offer you a wide range of the best raw materials in Europe, specifically designed to fulfill the requirements of any kind of application; this combined with our experience, research based on feedback received means we can offer you the steel best suited to your use in consideration of:

  • the interaction that occurs between the chemical-physical composition of the steel of the knife and the products used in the tanning or leather production;

  • the type of processing to be done;

  • the wheel used in grinding

The most common combinations of width and thickness used on splitting machines for the shoe and leather industry:

40 x 0.40 mm.

50 x 0.60 mm.

50 x 0.90 mm.

40 x 0.50 mm.

50 x 0.70 mm.

50 x 1.00 mm

40 x 0.60 mm.

50 x 0.80 mm.

60 x 0.80 mm


We have a large variety of raw steel in our warehouses which means Lamebo can create any combination of width and length:

Thickness: from 0.40 mm. to 1.00 mm.

Width: from 40 mm. to 60 mm.

The hardness, expressed in Rockwell degrees, of the different raw materials falls in the range of 48 - 51 HRC.


Production tolerances:

Lamebo Extra ®

Length: mm. ± 5

Width: mm. +0 / -1
