Hot wire cutter THERMOCUT 230/E
Ideal for architectural models, designers, decorators, artists, teaching too, prototypes as well as classical railroad, plane and boat model building.
The unit's double wound transformer and insulation to class 2 ensure the cutter is absolutely safe. The cutting wire operates at 10V, 1A.
The large base with 390 x 280mm table with surface of aluminium cobond compound ensures smooth and easy movement of the workpiece. The printed grid and protractor ease division and cutting. The solid aluminium overarm has a 350mm throat and offers 140mm capacity in height. The holder and wire coil (30m, 0.2mm diameter is included) may be shifted along the overarm to enable mitre cutting. A LED indicates operation and prevents burnt fingers (the cutting wire heats to maximum in less than 1 second).
The correct temperature, being material type and thickness dependent, is easily learnt. Optimum profiles are cut at lower temperatures and cutting force.
