Edge Hot Knife Kit also known as an Industrial Rope Cutter is made to cut and separate material while sealing the edges. It is ideal for material like synthetic fabrics (Sunbrella®), rope, webbing and woven material. Unlike conventional scissors or a knife that leaves the edges frayed the Hot Cut Knife melts the material together creating a clean sealed edge that will not unravel. The Hot Cut Knife is also used to strip the sleeves from electrical wiring. It can quickly remove the sleeve from most gauges and sizes of wiring. The Hot Cut Knife is easy to operate heating up in 4 to 6 seconds by pressing the trigger in. Once the blade is hot release the trigger and continue to cut. The blade will begins to cool after 10 to 15 seconds, press the trigger again for 4 to 6 seconds to continue cutting. Cycling the trigger on and off allows you to cut without having to stop for the blade to heat back up. The Hot Cut Knife has low power consumption and only draws 60 watts to operate making it able to run easily from an inverter at building sites and remote locations.
The Hot Cut Knife works best when used on a clean hard service that is fire resistant. Glass, stone, metal or concrete would all make excellent cutting surface. The cutting foot attachment also provide assistance in making a smooth even cut.
