Heated knife blade
For improving cut quality & reducing "hairs" on the cut end
Heating the knife blade can improve the cut quality for some rigid plastic extrusions.
A hot knife can also reduce the number of "hairs" or wisps of plastic that can occur when cutting some products.
The blade is warmed by two heating blocks located either side of the knife. The blade stops in this position between cuts.
A thermocouple link controls the temperature of the blocks & prevents overheating.
A digital temperature controller with LED display is provided to set the exact level of heat required. A maximum temperature of 200ºC can be set.
