Wheel Knife Tool - WKT
The Wheel Knife Tool is an efficient, cost-effective tool option for single-ply cutting of glass and carbon fiber as well as technical textiles. The use of HSS steel blades in this tool allows for very high processing speeds and a clean, efficient cutting process.
Cutting is done in pressure mode. The pressure settings can be adjusted to precisely match the material properties and desired cut quality. A special PU (polyurethane) underlay is used in conjunction with this tool to prevent damaging the cutting surface.
High cutting speeds
Uses rotary, high-speed steel blades (HSS)
Processing possible without vacuum hold-down
Clean, efficient cutting process
Special polyurethane cutting underlay
Compatible with G3, D3
A special, polyurethane-coated cutting underlay is delivered with all WKT tools. This type of
underlay is extremely tough and durable, and helps protect the conveyor belt. Since it lacks porosity and has no vacuum holes, cutting is performed in pressure mode and without vacuum hold-down.
The pressure settings can be selected to precisely match material characteristics and desired cut quality.
For cutting aramid fiber, Zünd recommends using the motor-driven PRT tool.
