Pipe and Tube Mills
Tube and Pipe Cut-Off Knife systems are the generally preferred method of tube cutting technology widely used in todays’ global market offering faster cut off speed with a Burr Free Cut.
While the knife is held in a jaw/bottom die set with the knife moving at high speed, it vertically cuts through the tube with impact. The recommended tolerance for the knifes’ thickness is +/- 0.02mm (0.001”). The preferred materials for tube cut knives are high speed steel or M2, holding hardness with +/- 1HRC, ensuring sharpness, strength and wear resistance. Plating recommendations: TiN (Titanium Nitride) Gold.
Flatness, Hardness, Wear Resistance, Toughness, Edge Retention and Impact Resistance are the prime factors for tube cut-off knives and Cowles Tool offers these knives in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to service the tube and pipe markets globally.
