Performance Anvils

The High Performance Difference

Ok so, what are "Performance Parts" and how are they different? Imagine you own a race car. Do you want the stock carburetor to put into your car or do you want to have the top of the line carburetor to get you to the finish line as fast as possible? With that metaphor in mind, CET Performance parts are specifically designed to increase recovery and decrease maintenance downtime. With that said, there are 3 ways our parts are different than the stock parts you get from the manufacturer.

1. Patented Adjustment System

Maintenance downtime is always an issue, and a large consumer of that time is shimming anvils. Our anvil adjustment system takes shimming anvils down from hours to minutes by offering an in-place solution to the shimming problem. No matter what machine you have or who made it, we can redesign the anvil to accommodate the adjusters and give you an anvil that will last longer and be easier to adjust. See the video below for a quick view of how it works.

2. Advanced Materials and Coatings

Using advanced materials, we have removed the need for chromed anvils in most applications. Our high performance anvils are made from a high nickel alloyed steel that becomes harder as it sees wear. On average, using anvils made from this material will double the life of your anvils. We've also done extensive research on different coating types available for those applications the high nickel alloyed steel won't work in. We offer the traditional chrome that you're accustomed to, but also a carbide coating that lasts, at a minimum, twice as long as a comparable chromed anvil. If you're interested in any specialized coating, ask us about it when you contact us!

Flute your Anvils, Run Tighter Tolerances

Anvils are a necessary evil. You have to have them to control the log or the cant, but they also get in the way and can slow things down. They often act like a brake pad. By fluting your anvils, you can decrease the friction on the production line which allows you to run tighter tolerances in your machine.
