TKM Group (previously known as IKS KLINGELNBERG GmbH), Germany stands for a globally operating group of companies which manufactures machine knives and machine elements for the paper, wood, metal, plastics, rubber and recycling industry.


From 1 October 2014 onwards, the individual companies of our IKS Klingelnberg group will consistently operate under the brand “TKM – The Knife Manufacturers” with a uniform image. In this way not only do we give ourselves a highly recognizable face fitting our international orientation, we highlight the fact that the united know-how of our experts around the world makes TKM Group more than the sum of its parts. In future we will conclude this with just two words: “Expertise United”.


Over 100 years of experience in the production of industrial knives and saws, in year 1814, the company was found as trading firm. The production of machine knives was started in 1908. The registered office of the group, which cultivates worldwide business relations, is located in Remscheid. The group operates production sites in Germany, Austria, Finland and China.


Continuous research regarding the further development of materials and production processes as well as decades of experience have made TKM Group a global player and one of the greatest knife specialists.

For Metal Industry; TKM Group is prominent suppliers / manufacturers of machine Knives, tools and accessories for slitters for Hot Mill, Cold Mill, Steel Service Centre and Non Ferrous Industry.



TKM Group have developed KSF Microplan Polishing Device which is manufactured specifically for the removal of material build-up on the side faces of rotary slitter knives without any measurable removal of material from the knife, thus leaving the thickness unchanged.


Modern technology in the production and converting of steel and non-ferrous metals unfortunately causes cutting problems. TKM Group is qualified to solve these problems.
