Scarfing Machines for Metal, Plastic, and Leather Thinning

Skiving is the process of thinning material using a sharp, often motorized tool. Depending on the purpose of the material, skiving can be used to trim it down, separate it into smaller pieces, smooth it out, or rough it up. We carry a wide variety of materials that are ready for the skiving process that should suit every need.

Leather is typically skived to thin it out to aid in the manufacture of leather goods such as shoes, bags, belts, etc. Metal skiving has a variety of applications: smoothing out small pieces to fit in precision machinery, or roughing up a long strip to allow it to better dissipate heat. Whatever your skiving project needs, we're sure to have the tools to get the job done.

Shoe Skiving Service

One of our specialties is fabricating parts for shoe production. Shoes are being constructed out of more materials than ever before. The thinning of these materials allows for a shoe or boot to not "shadow" in the box toe or counter area. This makes assembly easier, lowering costs and production time.

Contact Ward & Kennedy to request an estimate of skiving.
