Description

The JDC precision sample strip cutter has become the accepted standard for most corporations worldwide for preparing tensile samples of paper, paperboard, metal foils, nonwovens, films, tissue and a variety of other materials. Lightweight and portable, the JDC features a 20” base length for added leverage and stability along with operator safety.

The JDC cuts test strips to an exact width and parallel throughout their entire length. The positive cutting action of the dual blades and precision ground base shear cut both sides of the sample at once assuring you of a clean, accurate cut every time. The cutting blades are made of special tool steel which is stress relieved by cycling between cold and hot temperatures to prevent the blades from warping. 

The JDC cutter is designed to last for many years and a reconditioning service is available that provides the capabilities of a brand new cutter for half the cost.  Reconditioning includes regrinding the cutting blades and providing a new base shear.
