Plate Cutter

Plate Cutters

Dixon-Lesley plate cutters will cut holes quickly and economically through virtually all engineering materials, from thermoplastics to Stainless and Inconel Alloys. Plate cutters are available from 16mm up to 300mm diameter and are suitable for plate up to 10mm thick.

Cutters are fitted with replaceable cutting inserts, usually made from M42 Cobalt HSS. These inserts may be easily re-ground by the user up to six times before replacement becomes necessary.

A wide range of arbors is available to fit most machine spindles.

The Dixon-Lesley plate cutter offers major advantages compared with alternative methods.

Less Inventory: Machines a hole within 0.5mm tolerance with excellent surface finish in one pass.
Less Maintenance: User re-grindable tips in a high quality alloy steel body for long life with low maintenance costs.
