Maintenance Tip:
Wing Segmenter Sharpening Station Maintains Quality and Accuracy
It is important to ONLY use the Wing Segmenter Blade
Sharpening Station to sharpen the Wingtip and Drumette
blade to keep your Wing Segmenter performing at optimal
yields. The sharping station has been engineered to provide
the most acute sharpening angles and preset pivot points
to sharpen each blade for optimal performance. This precise
sharpening procedure also extends the life of these blades.
Please note: Sharpening these blades by hand or any other
method could permanently damage and alter the machines
performance and accuracy of cuts.
We have produced a video for the Wing Segmenter Blade
Sharpening Station that features an easy-to-follow,
step-by-step process of sharpening both the Wingtip and
Drumette blades.
The video can be viewed on the Cantrell website
( or you can request a DVD by
