What make Sheaffer been one of the leading knife manufacturers in the world?
What make Sheaffer been one of the leading knife manufacturers in the world? One of the most important elements to
support this success is the R&D department in Sheaffer. The R&D department is composed of tooling constructions and
new product designs. Tooling construction has a direct effect on the quality of the production as the tooling is the soul of
every product, without them products can not even exists.
In this department, several tooling techniques are used, lathering, milling, drilling, wire-cutting, electric embossing tooling,
and CNC 3-D tooling. These different techniques are used because of different demand on the precision on the tooling
needed. For example, the construction to the molds, embossing is used to make cavity from off setting and other shapes
that wire-cutting tooling can be applied. Finally, the CNC tooling can make the molds using 3-D drillers according to
pre-programmed procedure for initial cavity and core of tooling. Thus, finally achieving the highest precision in dimension
ensuring the tooling perfectly sustain long enough for smooth mass production.
Tooling is fully constructed by our engineers, thus provides efficiency in development and maintenance of different tooling
Our customers never need to wonder how long the lifespan of our tooling. Sheaffer guarantees the life of tooling with each
order. One time tooling charges ensures a lifetime guarantee for the life of tooling.
