A line of circular knives and blades, along with hand knives designed for cutting hose and tube materials, are available from Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS, Southbridge, MA). The blades and knives are engineered to cut the strongest materials, including tough wire-reinforced hydraulic hose. Unlike abrasive wheels, which generate heat, smoke, and debris, Hyde’s circular blades slice cleanly, eliminating large volumes of waste. Hyde’s IBS Hose and Tube Blades come in a variety of standard shapes and sizes, including “straight bevel” and “wavy scallop” edges, and custom blades are also available. By using proprietary processes in heat treating, grinding, and polishing, the IBS Blades are highly corrosion resistant, according to the company.
