Hot Wire Cutters

Cutters with thermal and electrical insulating ceramic body

Standard types

  • Available in 0.5mm, 0.7mm and 1mm to perfectly match your application
  • Flattened wire type covers most applications
  • Long, round wire type to cover fabric guiding variations

Types with Fabric pre-heating

  • Welding type
  • Steel body type for harsh environments
  • Special design to cope with special
    mounting conditions
  • Reinforced hot wire for heavy duty

Special applications

  • Pre-heating by parallel to fabric cutting wire
  • Heat-accumulating ceramic base pre-heats high tension fabrics and
    allows clean cuts at lower temperature. (for airbag, PP-fabrics etc.)
