Circular gasket cutters and accessories are ideal for cutting precise circular joints or gaskets from leather, rubber, plastic and similar materials in food processing, marine, petrochemical, hospitality, paper & packaging and similar manufacturing industries.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are metal cutting snips?
Handheld metal cutting snips are used to cut sheet metal & non-metal materials to form irregular shape flange gaskets in metalworking, automotive and maintenance & repair applications. Their handles simultaneously squeeze their angled blade for precise cutting through the gasket material.
What is the difference between a rotary gasket cutter and an extension style gasket cutter?
A rotary style gasket cutter is widely used in applications having a permanent installation constraint, whereas the extension-style gasket cutter can be moved easily from one location to another for cutting large diameter gaskets. The latter, unlike the former, also requires the gasket material to be laid flat on a workbench or a dedicated gasket fabrication table.
How do I choose the right gasket cutter?
The first deciding factor that a user must consider is whether the assembly needs to be stationary or portable. In general, the extension-style circular gasket cutters are portable and lightweight. These electric gasket cutter kits are widely used to fabricate non-metallic or non-rigid gasket materials. The rotary gasket cutters on the other hand are heavier and require mounting or bolting on a vise or a workbench for fixed-location gasket cutting. These circular gasket cutters are suitable for metallic or rigid gasket materials, as well as cutting out irregular shape gaskets.
What are handheld gasket cutters?
Handheld circular gasket cutters are designed for cutting out gaskets with handheld tools to fit seals and offer a leak-proof surface. These circular gasket cutting kits require manual adjustments of knives, centre points and centre bars.
