Metallurgy Mastered.

Ƶ is a premier manufacturing innovation partner renowned for high-wear components. Our expertise is deeply rooted in the skills of our world-class talent, who are not only masters in material behavior but also develop and apply proprietary heat treating and thermal spray solutions. This transformative approach extends the lifespan of components well beyond our core manufacturing capabilities of stamping, bending, forming, cutting, welding, machining, and casting. Ƶ sets itself apart with a rich history of over 50+ years of manufacturing technology. Our commitment to excellence is evident in our nine locations across Wisconsin, Illinois, and Vietnam. where we continually innovate wear solutions for a variety of industries from cutting components in the turf, agriculture, recycling, and pulp and paper industries, to bronze gears, pumps, wear parts, close tolerance components, thermal barriers, and antimicrobial solutions serving the energy, food processing, transportation, and medical markets.

Ƶ goes beyond being a mere source of high-quality parts. Ƶ delivers unparalleled precision and excellence in every aspect of manufacturing.

Products & Solutions

Turf Care Products

Turf Care Products

As a global leader in commercial and residential mower blade design and manufacturing, Ƶ sets the industry standard for blades that cut better, run quieter, consume less power, are safer to use, and last longer. We offer two types of turf care products:

  • Rotary Mower Blades: We supply lawn mower OEMs with premium rotary mower blades. Our engineers can produce the ideal blades for your application, whether you need riding mower blades, zero-turn mower blades, walk behind mower blades, or any other type of rotary mower blade. 
  • Reel Mower Blades: Our reel mower blades are designed to provide both quality and value. All blades feature high impact resistance, tensile strength, and yield. We specify the ideal blade material for each application and manufacture them with tight tolerances and precisely matched mounting holes.
Wear Products

Wear Products

Wear parts are components that operate in environments subjecting them to one or more wear elements, such as abrasion, adhesion, fretting, erosion, and corrosion. To reduce wear and prolong service life, it’s important to thoroughly understand the specifics of the wear mechanisms affecting the wear part. At Ƶ, our materials engineers use this understanding to develop protective coatings that address specific wear types and greatly improve the life and performance of the component.
Our wear parts and coating processes provide a low-cost, durable solution to resist various wear mechanisms. Ƶ’s patented MARBAIN® base material is ideal for disc mowers, agricultural weldments, and more. Combined with our FluxFuse® coating, our wear parts last longer and perform better.

Industrial Knives

Industrial Knives

Ƶ provides reliable cutting products that meet your unique applications and requirements. Some of our industrial knives include:

  • Corrugated: When cutting corrugated material, the blade needs to be sharp enough to cut without tearing, bending, or shredding the material while limiting the creation of dust. Ƶ’s corrugated knives deliver cleaner cuts. Our line includes cut-off and rotary shear knife sets, high-speed steel or carbide razor slitters, slotting knives, brass strippers, brass fingers, collars, urethane, and scoring rings.
  • Converting: We offer a wide range of knives that convert tissue, paper, foil, films, and more. These include standard and custom slitters, crush cutters, scoring and perforating knives, guillotine knives, and dished blades. 
  • Zenith Cutter® Industrial Knives: Zenith Cutter knives benefit from premium-grade steel and Ƶ’s innovative technology and manufacturing processes. These industrial knives are reliable, high-performance, and efficient, so they work faster and reduce your production costs.
Engineered Coating Solutions

Engineered Coating Solutions

In many applications, metals must be coated to enhance their service life and functionality. Our industrial coating solutions solve the most common surface wear challenges, such as abrasion, adhesion, cavitation, corrosion, and erosion. Ƶ’s surface engineering specializes in carbide, tungsten carbide, metal oxide, and plastic coatings.

Bronze Gear Components

Bronze Gear Components

Bronze gear blanks are the premium solution for strength and resistance to wear and corrosion in many applications, including hoists, cranes, escalators, elevators, power transmissions, and gearboxes. At Ƶ, many of our bronze gear components can replace multiple components in an assembly, saving you money on maintenance and production.
