JDC Precision Sample Cutters

JDC Cutters have become the accepted standard for many industry sectors. A large range of high precision, parallel, twin bladed cutters of fixed width from 1/8th inch - 75mm and up to 40cm long. Suitable for a textile, non woven, film, metal foil, paper, paperboard and tissue cutter. Manufactured by Thwing Albert.


Automatic hold down to ensure cut accuracy

The JDC Cutter is recognised by many as the worldwide industry standard for material testing sample preparation for paper, paperboard, tissue, non-wovens, plastics, metal foils and other sheet materials.

Test strips are cut to an exact width and are parallel throughout the entire length. The dual blade cutting action and precision ground base shear ensure that samples have clean edges that are free from nicks and uncut or pulled fibres.

The JDC is a portable cutter, but can be fixed via a heavy cast iron base. The cutting blades are made of special tool steel, which has been stress relieved by cycling between cold and hot temperatures to prevent the blades from warping.

Support platform
The guide bars attached to the support platform enable sample materials to be aligned and ensure that parallel and/or perpendicular samples are always obtained.

Meets the requirements of ASTM, ISO, Pressure Sensitive Tape Council, TAPPI and any test method requiring an accurate test strip.

A blade & base shear reconditioning service is available to extend the life of the cutter.
