Hot AND Cold? Here's how EASILY it's done:

Automatic Angle Cutters: What's the Difference?
We offer three types of Automatic Angle Cutters: FIXED angle, ADJUSTABLE angle, and ALTERNATING angle.
Fixed angle: the angle of the cut is 'fixed' by the knife design, or tooling. It can't be changed (not very easily). Ideal for high volume cutting jobs that don't change.
Adjustable angle: the angle of the knife is adjustable can be changed and set mechanically. This is our most popular angle cutter.
Alternating angle: the angle of the knife changes from end of the strap to the other as the material is being measured. The two angle stops are mechanically set and the knife rotates during every cutting cycle. The knife can also be set at a fixed angle if need. This is the most versatile angle cutter, but also the most expensive.

These hinges have gone through several design improvements over the years, as shown below. To adjust them, note the video to the right of the hinge type.
