GSM cutters are used to determine accurately the GSM (Grams per square meter) of any type of fabrics. With outmost precision and care, our team designs and manufactures a wide assortment of GSM cutters, using quality raw material. Being easy to operate and proved to provide accurate results, our gamut is in great demand across domestic textile industry.
This GSM Cutter is circular fabric sample cutter with which uniform circular fabric is cut without measuring. The specimen which is cut with the help of fabric GSM cutter is 100 cm2 areas. The instrument is equipped with a set of four replaceable blades and normal cutting pads.
Accessory of GSM Cutter:
- GSM Pad
- GSM Weighing Scale
Features of GSM Cutter:
Reliable rapid, and easy to use.
100 Square Centimetres cutting area.
Depth of cutting up to 5mm.
Special finishes for contacting surfaces to avoid of specimen slippage.
Specification of GSM Cutter :
The equipment consists of Sample cutter with safety catch lock. The instrument is equipped with a set of four replaceable blades. Two special grade cutting pads are provided with the unit. The cutting pads have much longer life than normal cutting pads.
The Sample Cutter has 4 Nos. of German reversible blades. The blades are reversible in design i.e. If one side gets blunt due to continuous usage, the blades can be turned to the other side. In this way, all the four sides of the blades can be used. Each blade has numbered sides from 1-4 for convenience in changing the blades.
The unit is recommended for yield testing i.e. the determination of weight per unit area. The sample cutter cuts out rapidly and accurately circular specimen of 100 Cm2, which is exactly 1 / 100th of a square meter. The result is grams, multiplied by 100, gives the GSM (Grams per square meter) directly.
Grammes per Square Meter = Specimen Weight in Grams x 100
How GSM Cutter works?
The material to be cut is placed between the Sample Cutter and a Special Cutting Board. When the safety catch is released, light downward pressure on the hand wheel brings the multiple blades into contact with the material. Specimens are cut by rotating the hand wheel under a light and even pressure. The design and precision manufacture of the instrument ensures the specimens are perfectly circular and have smooth edges. To maintain the cutting efficiency, the blades should be turned or changed when they become damaged or blunt, and the Cutting Board should be turned or changed when it becomes worn.
Applications of GSM Cutter:
GSM cutter are not just use in textile industry, they are use in various other industries like acrylic sheets, aluminium and foils, bags and luggage of cotton, plastic, paper and leather, beach wear, blankets, belts, foot ware, paper industry, package material, machines, boxes, polyester & BOPP films, hand tuffed carpets, home furnishing items Teflon products, thermal paper & thermocol and various other endless things.
