Trapezoidal blade cuts two cut edges simultaneously
Thanks to the trapezoidal shape, the blade firstly cuts wedge-shaped into the material. The manual force initially acts on the tip of the blade and, during the cutting process, follows the shape of the material in a circular (radial) way from the inside out and onto the material. This prevents distortions as can arise when cutting using a conventional shearing action with two straight cutting edges. The trapezoidal shape has other benefits:
Right-angled, clean cuts – with little physical effort
Due to the exact positioning of the material in the hose and protective pipe cutter and the wedge-shaped blade, the Knipex 90 20 185 pipe cutter automatically produces right-angled cuts. After cutting, no finishing (e.g. deburring) is required on the cut edges. Whether cutting plastic armoured pipes or fabric-reinforced hoses – e.g. for compressed air: the effort required is low due to the favourable angle of entry of the blade. Little effort is needed because the material has already been cut into.
Fast, convenient work thanks to opening spring, positioning and fastening
The opening spring assumes the work of opening for the user during each cutting operation. The spring presses the handles apart and opens the shears while reducing manual force. This is a great advantage, especially during large projects with several work processes. A pawl is integrated for transport. The material to be cut is positioned and secured in the wide, half round support. The pipe cutter for hoses and protective pipes ensure the right-angled position of the material to the blade. This enables cuts to be made in quick sequence using the pipe cutter for hoses and protective pipes.
