Double Cutting Action of Shears Conserves Materials

The double cutting action of the shears transfers any distortion produced in cutting to a waste strip, leaving behind material edges that are not rough or burred.

The double cutting action of the shears transfers any distortion produced in cutting to a waste strip, leaving behind material edges that are not rough or burred.

Kett Tool Co. helps metal fabricators conserve materials with the double cutting action of the KD-442 Double-Cut Shears. When cutting cold rolled (C.R.) mild steel and stainless steel, the double cut action of the KD-442 transfers any distortion produced in cutting to a waste strip, leaving behind material edges that are not rough or burred to allow maximum use of sheet material.
  
Kett’s KD-442 shears use a five-amp pistol grip, 0-2,500 RPM variable-speed electric motor that cuts through C.R. mild steel (up to 16 gauge), most grades of stainless to 18 gauge, sheet metal, spiral pipe, metal doors and metal studs, all at speeds of up to 170 inches per minute. The shears weigh five pounds and have close cutting blades that can cut a radius as small as 7-inches, making the shears both portable for location usage and durable for daily shop operations. All shear heads are precision made in the U.S. featuring A2 tool steel blades.

The KD-442 Double-Cut Shears are available through authorized dealers. For more information or to locate a dealer, visit here or call (513) 271-0333.

Roofinox Launches Series of Best Practice Seminars

Roofinox has launched a series of best practice seminars dedicated to the safe and correct use of stainless steel roofing & cladding. Each 90-minute session is designed as a hands-on introduction to application benefits, tips and practices.

“Stainless steel is an ideal alternative to copper roofing due to its long-term sustainability and corrosion-resistance,” says Dave Rowe, vice president at Roofinox America. “Many architects have come to value the grey patina these products achieve over time, while contractors have found Roofinox stainless steel to be more ductile and offer less spring back than other stainless products.

“As a domestic manufacturer of tin-plated (Terne) in the marketplace, we’ve developed these educational sessions so industry professionals can learn firsthand about the advantages of using stainless steel in both residential and commercial applications as well as the proper installation and roll forming techniques.”

Each Roofinox Best Practice Seminar will include product and application demonstrations, hands-on sample opportunities, completion certificate, and a discount good on purchases for 30 days after the event.

Originally developed to withstand the harsh climatic conditions found in Central Europe, Roofinox is ideal for applications ranging from rural, urban and light industrial areas to historic and commercial sites and extreme coastal environments. Available in coil or sheet, materials can be ordered by themselves so customers can do their own forming or prefabricated by distributors.
 
The product line consists of Roofinox Classic brush-rolled stainless steel, Roofinox Pearl bead-blasted stainless steel, Roofinox Plus ribbed stainless steel, Roofinox Chroma mirror-rolled stainless steel and Roofinox Tin-plated (Terne). The tin-plated stainless steel product is specifically developed and manufactured for roll forming and fabricating.
