Next Generation Hose Hog(TM) Professional Grade Blades Designed for Cutting Through Tough Wire Braid and Wire-Reinforced Hydraulic Hose

Southbridge, MA – A new leading-edge design of Hose Hog™ Circular Blades from Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS) improves cutting effectiveness through wire-reinforced hose and tube materials by introducing more blade surface area into the cut.

Employing proprietary engineering designs and manufacturing processes, these blades are toothed and beveled on both sides of the blade to deliver smooth cuts time after time.

Made of tough M2 high-speed steel, the new Hose Hog Circular Blades are designed to cut the strongest materials including tough wire-reinforced hydraulic hose in automated manufacturing operations. Unlike abrasive wheels, which hack a path through materials and generate heat, smoke and debris that can contaminate hydraulic cutting systems, these blades slice cleanly through the work resulting in little to no clean up after the cut.

This next generation of Hose Hog Circular Blades incorporates a thicker blade design to promote longer life and consists of an expanded range of blades measuring 7”, 8”, 10”, 12” and 14” in diameter in a variety of stocked sizes including the popular 10” x 1.575” x .125” model used by professionals in the fabricating industry.

The full line of Hose Hog Blades is also available with “double bevel” or “wavy scallop” edges offering versatility to fabricators for their specific manufacturing requirements. While the bevel edge blades offer the versatility of cutting all types of hose, the wavy scallop edge blades are designed to cut any hose containing a significant amount of steel.

Starting with a wide range of the highest-grade steels and alloys, Hyde employs proprietary processes in blanking, laser cutting, heat treating, grinding and polishing to ensure superior cutting performance of each individual blade. Manufactured in facilities with ISO 9001:2008 plant certification, durable Hyde IBS Blades are highly corrosion resistant and are engineered for long-life.

Backed by 135 years of experience, Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions is a leading producer of industrial knives and blades for a wide variety of markets including food processing, cloth and textile and leather, hose and tube, tire and rubber, package converting, paper and packaging and abrasives as well as for general industrial applications.
