The ST-OB cable cutter is an automatic cut to length machine which is designed to cut a wide variety of cable (as well as other materials). It gives precise results with a good quality of cut and fast working speeds. The preferred cutting mechanism for cable and wire cutting is with a shear cut module which has has two blades with one passing the other in the same fasion as a pair of scissors. The whole range of ST-OB machines offers quick and easy tool changing so that the machine offers a very flexible option for those who wish to cut a variety of products without the expense of multiple cutting machines.
The ST-OB offers very high powered cutting which is an advantage where your extrusion is tough to cut and also has the advantage of the ability of raising and lowering the cutting depth which can increase cutting speeds of short lengths by up to 30%, this feature can also be used if you only require a partial cut, for example where you require the cut parts to remain attached for further processing.
