The different bevels determine cutting pressure and shape of the material to be cut. The smaller and finer the bevel, the smoother the cut, with however a greater sensitivity of the cutting edges. Generally there is the choice of 4 different bevels – depending on the version of the cutter and the job to be done.

A most important quality feature of our cutters. As a result of our state-ofthe- art precision induction hardening technology we achieve up to 65° HRC for an above-average long cutter life.

With a distinct angle behind the edge, for hard and soft wires, or universal use, robust and long lasting.

Text With a fine angle behind the edge, almost flush cutting. For soft steel and copper wires in general, but in some Front- and Oblique cutters also for hard steel.

No angle behind the edge, full flush cutting. For copper wire. Reducing unwanted pressure on sensitive components and shock absorbing.Text

or fibre optic material, e. g. Kevlar®. The cutting capacities vary according to bevel and version chosen. For exact details please refer to the individual product dates.Text


The performance of a cutter not only depends on the material chosen and its hardness but also on the care and precision with which its cutting edges are dressed. For this reason we developed a special milling process providing very smooth, even and clean surfaces, reducing frictional resistance to a minimum. The cutting edge angles are ground with utmost care before experienced and qualified staff are testing each cutter carefully on special test wires, giving them their final and approved special “schmitz”- touch.

Highlights in our range are Tungsten-Carbide Tipped Cutters and SMD-Cutters.
