Understanding the Function of a Rotary Pipe Cutter

A rotary cutter, also known as a pipe cutter or manual cold rotary pipe cutters, is a tool leveraged to provide a clean, professional-quality cut. More convenient than tools such as hacksaws, the fast and easy-to-use rotary cutter ensures that the cuts that result are clean and neat, necessitating minimal to no deburring or extensive clean-up. Due to its efficiency and precision, the rotary cutter is thus one of the go-to tools amongst plumbers and other professionals looking for a safe way to cut pipework.

Benefits of Using a Rotary Cutter

The rotary cutter cuts pipes safely, easily, efficiently and at a low cost. It provides a square cut and can be used in close quarters anywhere—in the ditch, underwater, in noise-free zones, overhead, in racks of pipes, and more. These tools are made from highly durable materials which are built to last for decades.

They are also suitable for use on pipes and tubes of various materials, such as aluminium, copper, cast iron and stainless steel. Users can also produce accurate and precise cuts using the rotary cutter with the help of effective positioning mechanisms. With the proper grip of the tool’s long handle, the pipe you aim to cut will snap off squarely before the wheels on the rotary cutter penetrate halfway through the pipe. 

Compared to most cutters of the past, the latest rotary cutters produce very little noise, making the workstation more conducive to work. Excellent for cold cuts, a procedure that enables one to cut through materials without heat or flame, you can rest assured that no sparks will be produced — making it ideal for use even in hazardous environments. Reed’s rotary cutter is also easy to manoeuvre with user-friendly handles designed with workshop ergonomics in mind so that users can minimise the risks of musculoskeletal injuries, all while boosting workplace productivity and efficiency by scores.

However, it is pivotal to note that safety is always a concern when working with any type of rotary cutter. As with any machinery or hand tool, big or small, each cutter in our inventory in Singapore comes with a safety manual with operational rules that all users must abide by. A video instruction manual guide can be found on Reed’s official website as well.
