When it comes time to cut plastic pipes cleanly and quickly, a pipe cutter is an ideal tool for the job. Using a saw can be difficult and cumbersome, and using an articulated scissor-like cutting tool with two opposing blades often has undesirable effects, such as curled or broken pipe ends, especially with pipes made of plastic. There are two main different types of pipe cutters - plastic and metal. They are available in a variety of sizes and configurations for cutting pipes of different materials, sizes, and shapes. Below we mainly introduce the plastic cutting machine.

A plastic pipe cutter is actually similar to a pair of pliers or scissors, except that the jaws have a blade on one side and a circular shape on the other for placing the pipe. Plastic pipe cutters are often designed with the ability to replace the blades, as the blades are prone to wear after cutting many heavy pipes. This is usually designed to cut PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipe, which is one of the more durable and less breakable plastic pipes.

It can be particularly difficult to cut denser materials simply by squeezing the two handles of the pipe cutter, so the mechanics of plastic pipe cutters often allow for a ratcheting action when cutting. This means the handles can be squeezed together more easily, creating more force on the blade. Depending on the circumference and density of the pipe, the ratchet handle may require multiple squeezes to get the blade through.

The above is a brief introduction to the plastic pipe cutting machine. If you want to know more or want to buy a pipe cutting machine, please contact us.
