    ASKO Hot Strip Mill Knives crop head and tail ends of strip, separate strips, and chop cobbles. ASKO Hot Strip Mill Knives operate in harsh, high-temperature, corrosive environments at temperatures above 1400F/700C. They are used both with and without the application of coolant.


    ASKO Hot Strip Mill Knives are custom manufactured and are available in a range of hot work tool steel and super alloy grades matched to the requirements of each application.


    ASKO Hot Strip Mill Knives are available in a range of designs. ASKO produces knives to mill builder designs, user modified designs, and in special situations can offer design advice for improved performance. ASKO's curved, vector, and differential designs reduce shearing forces and mill cobbles.
