A flat, 90°, burr-free cut is difficult to obtain with the most commercial polymer tubing cutters. Upchurch Scientific® has designed several tubing cutters specifically to cut polymer tubing. This line of tubing cutters includes a standard cutter for 1/16" and 1/8" OD tubing (A-327), and another for large bore tubing (A-329). Each has guide holes to ensure precise cutting. These cutters are durable, reliable, and easy to operate. Five replacement blades are included with each tool.
The Upchurch Scientific A-350 Cutter is designed to cut capillary sized polymer tubing. The cutter makes clean, perpendicular cuts without collapsing thin capillary walls. A set of ten tubing sleeves, required for cutting, are included with each cutter, along with five 360 µm OD polymer capillary tubing. Alternative sleeves are 2" long and are made of DuPont® FEP.
We offer a precision cutter for fused silica tubing—SG's Shortix™ Cutter (FS-315). This cutter ensures clean, trouble-free cutting of fused silica tubing, providing better cuts than any other product on the market. It also includes a built-in magnifying glass to examine the cut tubing ends. Order the FS-315-02 Maintenance Kit, as needed, to replace a worn or damaged cutting wheel. Please Note: The FS-315 Fused Silica Tubing Cutters are designed to cut only tubing with ODs of 350 µm – 780 µm and IDs of 100 µm – 350 µm.
