What are some machines that are used to make cutlery?
I am doing a project on cutlery and I was wondering what are the names of the machines that make cutlery?
Thank you, appreciate it if you can help me out.
Most cutlery is made by either stamping it out of sheet steel with a stamping press or cutting it out with a laser. The edge is formed by grinding with either belt or wheel grinders. The handles are either molded on to the tang directly or if they are two piece handles they are usually riveted on. The better quality and more expensive cutlery is produced by forging which is a process of forming by hammering. Forged cutlery is formed from steel billets using either a drop forge or a power forge. Forged cutlery requires extensive heat treatment to make the steel properly hard and flexible. The edge of the blade is formed by grinding with either belt grinders or wheel grinders. Handles are either molded or riveted on to the tang.
