Loop Knives Designed to Cleanly Remove Flash from Molded Plastic and Rubber Products
Southbridge, MA – Loop knives designed to quickly and safely remove flash waste and excess material from molded or extruded rubber and plastic parts have been introduced by Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions. Hyde IBS Loop Knives are manufactured with durable high-carbon steel blades for longer-term edge sharpness and long-life when removing flash from anything coming off production lines from bumpers to tires, and just about everything in between.
Each Hyde Loop Hoof Knife measures 6.5” in overall length and features a handy pick for hard-to-remove imperfections. The blades have a .515” diameter and 1.3” long cutting edge and are mounted to a HammerHead® molded handle. The handle is designed with a durable polypropylene core and thermoplastic elastomer soft grip covering to absorb the shock from scraping to ease stress on the user’s hands, wrists and arms.
Precision manufactured by hand knife experts, each cutting edge is CNC machine ground and sharpened on the inside. The blades can easily be resharpened with a belt sander or bench grinder for continued use. All blades on Hyde Loop Knives are heat-treated and are manufactured in facilities in the U.S.A. with ISO 9001:2008 plant certification. They feature an electrostatically applied powder coating to provide increased resistance to rust and extend blade life while further increasing the knives ability to remove material quickly and cleanly.
