About Cutting Pliers
Cutting pliers are a type of tool designed to cut through various materials. They come in many shapes and sizes, and can be used for a variety of purposes, from cutting key blanks to slicing through wires or other objects.
Types of Cutting Pliers
The most common types of cutting pliers include standard cutting pliers, wire cutters, diagonal cutters, and key cutting pliers. Standard cutting pliers are typically used for general purpose applications like gripping and bending metal or plastic. Wire cutters have sharp blades designed to easily slice through electrical wiring or cables. Diagonal cutters feature angled blades that allow them to get into tight spaces more easily than standard cutting pliers. Key cutting pliers are specifically designed for making copies of keys.
How Cutting Pliers are Made
Cutting pliers are made from durable steel with hardened jaws for increased strength and durability. The handles are often covered with plastic grips for comfort during extended use. Some models also feature spring-loaded handles which help reduce fatigue when using the tool repeatedly.
Industries that use Cutting Pliers
Cutting pliers are commonly used by locksmiths, electricians, HVAC technicians, automotive technicians and others who need to make cuts in small spaces or on delicate materials. Key cutting plier models specifically can be found in hardware stores where they're used to make copies of keys quickly and accurately.
