Choosing The Cutting Tools That Are Right For You

Posted by Admin on October, 04, 2012

The main purpose of a Cutting Tool is to cut/shape a work piece (into the required form) by the process of shear deformation. Cutting can be accomplished by various tools, both single-point and multipoint. To an untrained eye, it is very difficult to find the right kind of tools needed for different purposes from domestic to industrial. One must be very careful while selecting Cutting Tools as using the right kind of tool can provide an easy solution to the problem, while the wrong kind can only make the task more complicated and hazardous.

Factors To Consider While Selecting The Right Kind Of Cutting Tools:

  1. One must only select the most suitable tool for a particular function like- most of the cutting operations require twin handled tools like pliers, snips and cutters.
  2. The Cutting Tool must be spring-loaded to return the handles to the original open position.
  3. One must ensure that the open grip span of a cutting tool is not more than 3 ½ inches in case of power applications. Similarly, the closed grip span should not be less than 2 inches.
  4. For precision cutting tasks, the open grip span should not be more than 3 inches and the closed grip span must not be less than 1 inch.
  5. One must select a tool that has a coated soft material without any sharp edge or finger groove. Addition of the sleeve enhances the diameter of the grip.
  6. One must also keep in mind that tools with bent handles are better than straight handles for horizontal force application and in cases where vertical force is needed straight handles are better than bent handles.

Cutting Tools are potentially dangerous because of their very inherent function that requires sharp and pointed edges. So, proper precautions and measures should be followed to ensure safe handling. Cutting Tools are found in various forms like Industrial Cutting Tools, Paper Cutting Tools, Wood Cutting Tools, etc. and they come in various types like- Indexable Cutting Tools (milling cutters and saw blades, etc.).
