WC601A Wire and Tubing Cutter

FAQs:

  • What is the tool life on WC601A Blades?
    • Tool life in general is hard to determine because there are so many factors involved such as proper set up, amount of use (production level), skill of operator (proper use), type of material being cut or removed, environment, etc.
    • Standard wire blades should last for thousands of cuts if used on copper wire, but for other wire materials like steel there is no guarantee . Tube cutting blades should last for thousands of cuts on most types of tubing but if the tubing blade is used once on a wire it will be damaged.
