Tool for precise cutting and preparing of 1/16" to 1/8" metal capillaries (stainless steel, titanium etc.) and steel jacketed glass capillaries, for dimensionally stable, perpendicular, and burr-free cuts without alteration of lumen and correction of the cutting site.
Safe to handle loading device made of anodized light metal with covered knife-like hard metal rotary cutter and slip-proof arresting device for the capillary to be prepared.
The capillary is inserted on its cutting site into the deeply grooved keeper slot of the THOMACHROM®-Metal Capillary Cutter and arrested in the loading device by the salient non-slip knurled screw. Thereby, the rotary cutter is pressed against the capillary. By rotating the cutter around the capillary, it is cut in constantly and neatly. Thereafter, the knurled screw is tightened again and the notch is deepened to the required extent as described above. The arresting is unlocked and by slightly pressing at the thus produced predetermined breaking-point the correctly pre-cutted capillary is broken burr-free.
