Trimming on multiple planes is possible. A multiple level trim should be approached carefully with some forethought mathematically for buildups that will result in a level shut height during your trim process. Reducing make-readies and designing with different materials is how Sharples approaches Multi-Level Trimming. We look at the design and layout and consider the best approach, whether it is multiple die heights or building trim from the reverse side on the anvil. Sharples has an enormous array of materials in inventory, machining capabilities and of course our ability to "Bend all the Rules," stocking all different knife heights to get you to the best trim possible..
