Circular knives are versatile cutting tools that can be used in a variety of industries. Circular knives get the job done quickly regardless of the material - from paper and plastic film to food and pharmaceutical packaging. And they’re made of high quality material to last. Keep reading, whether you’re looking for a new tool for your business or just want to learn more about this type of knife. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about circular knives, including their many benefits.
Circular knives, also known as circular blades or circular cutters, are handheld tools designed for a precise circular cutting motion that removes thin layers of material from the surface. Circular knives, formally classified as circular saws, are commonly used in the manufacturing and processing industries that require very accurate cuts, for instance the aerospace and automotive industries. In addition, they’re often used to cut paper material in the printing industry, as well as fabrics and other materials in the fashion industry. Circular knives have helped to streamline manufacturing processes due to their compact size and their ability to allow micro-adjustments for a higher degree of accuracy.
Circular knives have a different design and functionality than traditional knives. Visually, circular knives are much wider than traditional blades and the circular edge blends into the flat surface of the surrounding tool body and looks more like a circular disc than a traditional knife. Functionally, circular knives use an oscillating cutting action that creates less heat and strain on the knife and provides superior support for different types of precision cuts with minimal pressure compared to traditional knives. In addition, circular knives can be used with materials ranging from tissue thin paper to rigid plastic, since they provide an extremely precise cut with significantly less waste material. This makes circular knives the perfect choice for industrial manufacturers, such as those working in the timber, food, packaging and conversion industries.
