The solution for evaluation of cutting processes

The first intelligent knife for high-speed cutters is the result of a cooperation between the family Hagedorn and Polar as technology partners.
In addition to the evaluation of the cutting processes, the IntelliKnife solution also includes an integrated production data acquisition system (PDA).

Only a few components are necessary to provide all cutting-related data in the cloud: The IntelliKnife Box and an RFID reader as well as an intelligent knife equipped with an RFID chip.


  • Storage of all knife data (quality, grinding angle, number of grinding processes, etc) in the cloud
  • Browser-based manual collection of operating data such as malfunction, set-up and maintenance times
  • Logging of all knife movements
  • Secure machine-cloud data connection via the IntelliKnife-Box
  • Retrieval of all operating data and status messages via the IntelliKnife web interface
IntelliKnife is suitable for all Polar high-speed cutters of the E, ED, X and N series
