Learn More About Cutting Sticks Cutting sticks refer to long rectangular-shaped pieces of plastic with varying lengths that are used in guillotine paper cutters for protecting 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. Another material is polypropylene poly-stone that makes up the grey cutting sticks used with tungsten carbide tipped guillotine and HSS knives and blades. Cutting sticks are made of plastic with a total of four sides and are placed in a groove on the cutter’s bottom, where the stack of the cutting blade rest after the cut is made. Cutting sticks play an important part in any cutting process, assisting in the production of clean cuts. The cut is completed properly because the cutting blade rests in the cutting stick to allow the blade to make it through every sheet, even in the last bottom sheet. Cutting sticks will not dull the cutter blade and will even help prolong its life. Cutting sticks have durable design and the plastic used takes the force of the impact of the blade while maintaining its structural integrity. A sign of worn out cutting stick include one or two pages which is not cut properly or all the way through. 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. When all sides are used and worn, they need to be replaced. Cutting sticks are affordable and they are usually sold in bulk quantities. When it comes to proper stack paper operation and maintenance, keep in mind that cutting sticks wear out in time, 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. Overall, cutting sticks prevent damage to the cutting blade in the cutting process, and for easy cutting up to the last sheet of paper.
