Class T and Class W Fine Hard Wire Cutters – Choosing a Solution
Tronex hard wire cutters are used by fortune 500 medical manufacturers around the world to enhance the efficiency, quality and precision of their building capabilities. Our hard wire cutters offer cutting strength and precision for customers manufacturing medical solutions in a laboratory environment under a microscope. Tronex offers two types of hard wire cutters to meet our customers’ unique hard wire cutting demands.
Tronex Class W Fine Hard Wire Cutters are made entirely from solid tungsten alloy steel. They are manufactured at our CA facility with exceptionally sharp cutting edges and a solid joint design. These hard wire cutters undergo a special furnace-hardening process to achieve a hardness of 66 to 68 HRC on both cutting edges. In addition our Class W cutters are able to reach into confined areas, have fine tips and are very light weight.
Class T Cutters are made from precision machined blanks in which solid tungsten carbide material has been silver brazed in the cutter jaw. Diamond grinding then forms the head shape and sharpens the cutting edges. This tool design with its dual material construction combines the high yield strength of carbon steel with the intense localized hardness of tungsten carbide. Cutting edges of Class T cutters have a hardness of 79 to 81 HRC.Class T cutters can cut thicker and harder wire than Class W cutters. The jaws and handles are tough and strong.
