Special Products and Accessories
Our hot knives and thermal products are the most versatile tools available! Additional items such as safety guards, reel holders, and piece counters, for example, may be added to most models to enhance their usefulness.
Mechanical Cut Counter
Keep track of your production by adding a small mechanical cut counter to your RX-80 or RX-84 hot knife. This simple counter will index with every pull of the knife lever. Reset the count to zero by turning the dial.
Supplemental Safety Side Guards
Perforated stainless steel side guards enhance safety and are mounted directly to the base plate. The material opening is normally 5/16" (8mm) to 3/8" (10mm) but can be made to any size as needed by plant or corporate safety regulations. Available for our 5", 8", 10" & 13" hot knife models.

Now available is a compact laser dot for assistance in aligning the work under a thermal punch or hot knife. These compact, affordable lasers are fully adjustable for a variety of applications. The small red laser dot is easily visible from all work angles and can be turned off if not needed. The sturdy aluminum adjustable thumb-screw mount is out of the way.
The laser can be used for aligning a single hole under the punch as shown in the photo, for accurately placing sequentially spaced holes, or creating an end stop for cutting to length.
These can be mounted on many of our manual hot knives, thermal punches and presses.
R20A-050 Webbing & Ribbon Reel Holder
Free-standing webbing & ribbon reel holder will stand on the floor or table. Holds spools up to 10" wide and 15" in diameter. May be customized to your specifications.
CUSTOM REEL STANDS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE! Send us your drawing, photo or sketch.
R80A-082 Foot Pedal Assembly
Operate your RX-80 hot knife "hands-free" with our optional aluminum foot pedal assembly. Use of this device requires drilling and mounting the hot knife directly to your work bench or work table. The Foot Pedal Assy. includes a heavy-duty hinge which requires mounting to a sturdy vertical surface, such as a wall or support. A heavy-duty spring mounted between the foot pedal and knife arm prevents excess force from wearing the knife edge prematurely.
