Skiving Explained

“Skiving or scarfing machines cut material off in slices, usually metal, but also leather or laminates. The process is used instead of rolling the material to shape when the material must not be work hardened, or must not shed minute slivers of metal later which is common in cold rolling processes.

The skiving process, meaning “to slice”, can be applied to a variety of applications and materials. In leather, skiving knives trim the thickness of the leather, often around the edges, to thin the material and make it easier to work with. In metal working, skiving can be used to remove a thin dimension of material or to create thin slices in an existing material, such as heat sinks where a large amount of surface area is required relative to the volume of the piece of metal.” – Wikipedia

In Hydralok terms we are very proud of our skiving machines which are suitable for fabric braid, wire braid and multi-spiral hose applications.

Our skiving machines are available with mandrels to skive both internally and externally with multiple capacities.
