Several Pin Cutters were tested before choosing these German-made cutters. They provide accurate, burr-free cutting of the hard-temper stainless steel pins used in MicroMounts™, MicroMeshes™ and MicroTools™.
These cutters are manufactured in chrome-vanadium steel. They are oil hardened and the cutting edges are separately induction hardened.
The end cutting action and almost flush head allows accurate alignment and cutting on the 2 mm marks on our pins.
Because the edges of these cutters are extra-hard, they are also more brittle. To get maximum tool life, please follow two simple rules:
1. Always cut with the steel pin perpendicular to the jaws.
2. Never wiggle the pin or cutters during cutting.
