Fabricate – Skiving

Scarfing Machines for Metal, Plastic, and Leather Thinning

Skiving is the thinning of a piece of leather or plastic using a sharp tool. Leather is typically skived to thin it out to aid in the manufacture of leather goods such as shoes, bags, belts, etc. Metal skiving is usually meant to reduce surface area. Whatever type of skiving you need, Ward & Kennedy has the right skiving and fabrication services for you.

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.
