Durability and quality perfected over 140 years

A profitable sugar production process is not possible without a good cossette. It is critical to have the best beet knife in the world to maintain positive impacts downstream. Putsch®  beet knives, in connection with a well-maintained slicing station, ensure the highest quality cossettes: the excellent surface area per volume ratio optimizes your sugar extraction.

Over the past 150 years, Putsch® has perfected the beet slicer knife. Special-made steel and unique properties give our beet knives an edge over the competition. We have achieved the ideal combination of ductility and hardness in our knives; they do not rip or bend easily. If they do bend, Putsch® beet cutters work well with geared straightening rollers (one of many Putsch® patented innovations), even when others don't.

Putsch® supplies knives in a variety of models, divisions and lengths for all commonly used beet slicing systems:

  • Putsch® TSM Drum Slicers®

  • Disc Slicers
