Hi-Tech Savings in Time and Money to the Timber Industry


COLDfire used in Mills for longer tool life and worker safetyThe unique COLDfire treatment offers a significant increase in abrasive wear resistance and durability.   The increases in tensile strength, toughness and stability coupled with the release of internal residual stresses are unavailable in conventional treatments. This one-time, through material treatment improves the entire structure, not just the surface, giving your components unsurpassed stability and wear properties. Even better, the tools can be resharpened in the same manner and provide the same increase performance and wear for the entire life of the component. 


COLDfire improves all types of cutters and tooling

Users of the COLDfire process have reported up to a four fold increase in the usable life of some tooling components and consumables. For cabinet and furniture makers the COLDfire process allows not just longer life of blades and cutters but importantly a smoother finish due to the retention of sharpness which minimizes sanding and finishing.

For timber mills, forestry and other industrial users of COLDfire results in chippers, chain saw blades, band and circular saws and profile cutters achieving productivity increases up to four times.

Other parts in the mill have also shown substantial benefit - machine parts, chains, bearings etc


COLDfire represents a major technological breakthrough for Industry with benefits including: 

  • Less Downtime for repair and replacement of parts
  • Increased wearability and service life of components
  • Decreased wear of consumables means less tooling purchases
  • Higher profits
  • Better performance of components leading to increased production levels
  • Risk reduction benefits improve Occupational Health & Safety applications.


Timber Industry Applications include:

Saw Blades (Circular, TCT, Bandsaw & Framesaw) Hoggers, Chipping Knives & Parts
Planer Knives, Profile Knives and Cutters Peeler and Veneer Knives


Remember Everything wears out sooner or later, 

COLDfire gives you the opportunity of making it  MUCH LATER!
