There are many unique advantages to designing with fiberglass. Manufacturers even use it as a primary material for their products because of its versatility, strength, insulating properties, and resistance to corrosion from both water and chemicals. It has become a low maintenance, long- lasting composite manufacturing option.
To utilize fiberglass to its fullest potential, manufacturers must choose the right fiberglass cutting tools for their applications. There are challenges to this, however. The strength of fiberglass means that your chosen cutting tool must be both durable and reliable. The right fiberglass cutting tools must be capable of cutting any type or orientation of fiberglass, and each construction method may impact the speed, throughput, and blade type necessary for your cutting system.

Other Things to Consider
It is important to take the tool head and blade type into consideration when choosing a cutting tool. In most cases, you want to cut with a round blade, which will easily crush and creak fiberglass materials with less fragmentation. Some heads can include a marking pen, notching tool, drag-style knife, or punching tool.
Fiberglass can also be cut with a 10-sided blade, which is engineered to cut textiles like stitched fiberglass. This blade offers maximum versatility and adaptability when added to a heavy-duty tool head.
The right fiberglass cutting solution goes beyond the cutting tool itself. We offer products that include feeding systems and other material handling options for your production floor. If you’re managing long cut pieces of glass fiber inputs, adding rewinders can minimize the need for manual labor. This is particularly helpful when cut parts exceed the table length and become difficult for operators to handle manually.
