Braided Tube Cutter
This is a manual tabletop tube cutting fixture used to cut polyimide tubing that has been braided with rectangular stainless steel wire.
A custom clamping mechanism is used to hold the tube without marking it, but allowing a clean, distortion-free cut. The razor blade used for cutting has minimal edge exposure for safety.
The tubing is cut cleanly with no distortion of the braid and no flaring of the tube end. The razor blade used for cutting is easily replaceable with no handling of the edges.
