Your Ultimate Guide to Cutting Sticks A cutting stick refers to a long rectangular-shaped piece of plastic with different length that is used in guillotine paper cutters for protection of the blade from hitting the metal to increase the lifetime of the blade. Cutting sticks have two types of materials which depend on the cutting frequency, and quality of the guillotine blade. Red cutting sticks are usually made of polyvinyl chloride being used with HCHC steel and standard guillotine knives and blades. For grey cutting sticks, they are made up of polypropylene poly-stone ideally used with tungsten carbide tipped guillotine and HSS knives and blades. Cutting sticks are usually made of plastic with four sides, which are placed in a groove on the cutter’s bottom, and where the stack of the cutting blade rest after the cut is made. In the cutting process, cutting sticks play an important role when producing clean cuts. Since the cutting blades rest in the cutting sticks, there is proper cutting to allow the blade to make it through every sheet until he very last bottom sheet. Cutting sticks won’t dull the cutter blade and will even help prolong its life. A the cutting stick has a durable design, with plastic taking the force on the impact of the blade while maintaining its structural integrity. If the last one to two sheets are no longer cut all the way through, this is a good sign that your cutting stick is worn out that may need replacement. You need to be aware that each cutting stick can be rotated for eight times before replacing your cutting stick. Each side of a cutting stick can be used twice because the cutting blade does not rest directly in the center. You can simply flip the cutting stick at 180 degrees to be used on the same side again that can be turned in a total of four times since the cutting stick is square. If all sides are worn and used, then they need to be replaced. Cutting sticks are affordable and they are usually sold in bulk quantities. Keep in mind that cutting sticks wear out in time when it comes to proper stack paper operation and maintenance, and failing or damaged cutting sticks can lead to incomplete cuts. It is important to keep an extra blade on hand in order to prevent downtime while the other blade is getting sharpened, and also keep an extra cutting stack for the stack paper cutters. Cutting sticks can help in the cutting process to prevent damage to the cutting blade, and for easy cutting up to the last sheet of paper.
