Cutting Sticks Critical For Proper Stack Paper Cutter Operation

Cutting Sticks for Stack Paper CuttersThere’s one thing that many people don’t realize or take into consideration when it comes to proper stack paper maintenance and operation. What they’re missing is the fact that cutting sticks will wear out over time. A damaged or failing cutting stick will lead to incomplete cuts.

Many people, including myself, recommend keeping an extra cutting blade on hand to prevent downtime while the other is getting sharpened. I argue that people should also keep extra cutting sticks on hand for their stack paper cutters.

For those of you unfamiliar with cutting sticks, here is a brief description of what they are:

Stack Paper CuttersCutting sticks provide a pliable and non-damaging surface for stack paper cutting blades to rest on after completing a cut. These sticks are typically made from resilient plastic materials, however, they will eventually wear out over time. A cutting stick can be rotated a total of 8 times (two times per side) before they need to be replaced.

Cutting sticks assist in the cutting process by not only preventing damage to the cutting blade, but also allowing the blade to easily cut through the last couple of sheets of paper. If you notice your stack cutter having trouble cutting the last few sheets of paper, you may need to replace your cutting stick.
