Most of our customers opt for smart knives which are precision engineered for the specific plotter that they have. Changing blades can be time-consuming and intricate, especially blades that have springs, and blades can be easily damaged when being installed. However, our range of smart knives are encapsulated in a pre-cast holder and are pre-set to the required depth so that they can be used immediately (after a test cut).
We also stock Fine Detail/Flock (HSK450F) (with a Red cap) and Heavy Duty (HSK750R) (with a Grey cap) smart knives for Summa plotters and cutters – For customers using a wide variety of vinyls/flex, we recommend using a separate blade for thicker or more difficult to cut vinyl to ensure the longevity of the blade. We also recommend having a spare blade to hand in case a blade becomes dull or damaged unexpectedly.
CUTTING TIP: When you insert a new blade or Smart Knife, you should always check your plotter settings and do a test cut before cutting your intended design.
