Our continue efforts and quality, turn the Ekal Professional name into the ideal for international style showing collections that sketch out an elegant world living its day-to-day experience with natural simplicity, quality and friendly use.
Manufacturing process of haircutting scissors / shears
1 ) Raw material (Forging)
Forging is a process of cutting shaped raw instruments with the help of dyes and hammers. Here, the skilled hands give life to the metal and give it the rudimentary shape that will go through series of complicated processes.
a) Cold Forging: The best quality stainless Steel is forwarded to the forging unit where well trained technicians and professional craftsmen ensure that each instrument is fashioned in such a way that it lives up to the promise of Ekal Professional
b) Hot Forging: This critical process is carried out on red-hot steel cuttings, which are hammered by a Hot Forging Hammer (50-300tons). Process is executed by highly skilled personnel under strict process control conditions. After Trimming, Straightening and Quality Assurance Inspection, the instruments are sent to "Milling and Filing Process" for further run.
2 ) Milling & Filling
Transformation of Skills and Experiences of the forefathers regarding Filing and Shaping of the instruments transcend us to produce “The Piece of Art". After being filed, the well refined "milling" becomes the ultimate process to beautify the instruments "of course with the involvement of latest machinery and expertise manpower". After completion of filing process, instruments are heat treated to get the required level of hardness.
3 ) Grinding
The desired results of Product's Outlook are obtained by seasoned workers using different kinds of grinding wheels and scissors. Scissors and all other Cutting Instruments also undergo the EGP- Edge Grinding Process.
The blades are meticulously hand-honed and assembly set by the "USTAAD" in a laborious, time-consuming process. They are finished to masters own personal high standards until they become a perfect and flawless matching cutting set. Every surface is hand polished to achieve a flawless mirror finish. These combined elements represent the highest expression of technology and craftsmanship.
4 ) Heat treatment
Our use of advanced heat-treating technology safe guards the purity of the stainless steel and the resultant crystal-line structure of scissor blades and other instruments cutting surface is second to none.
The basic purpose of heat-treating is to radically change the molecular structure of the steel, while retaining as many of the original characteristics of the alloy as possible. Correct heat treatment further provides for oxidation reduction of carbon contents in stainless steel during the manufacturing process. This helps to overcome problems like warping, cracking and coarse grain.
5 ) Polishing
The exterior surface of the blades is polished after the convexing is completed. Also, any scratches or damages to the surface metal are corrected. Every surface is hand polished to achieve a flawless mirror finish. These combined elements represent the highest expression of technology and craftsmanship.
6 ) Hollow grinding
Using a German grinding stone, a gentle indentation is made on the inside blade. This is designed so that only the knife edges come together for optimal cutting performance .They are very high quality steel and use a deep hollow grind to achieve a smooth continuous cut.
7 ) Marking/ Stamping
After the completion of final inspection every instrument is stamped as per customer's instructions.
8 ) Sharpening
The craftsman corrects asymmetries and sharpens the blade until it has a good edge. During rough, intermediate, and fine sharpening phases, progressively finer whetstones are employed to smooth the surface of the blade. Sharpness is tested by making sure the blades cut is in proper functioning.
9 ) Quality Inspection
Our experience of past training, quality planning and strict quality control gives us the required level of Customer's Satisfaction. After Quality Control Inspection the instruments are then rebuffed for ultra better results.
10 ) Cleaning
Imported (high tech) machinery, trained operators and process of validation are used in the instrument cleaning process to get the required results of cleanliness>
