Critical aspects of plotter blade and knife selection for use in sign making applications include:

Material selection for maximum wear resistance at a reasonable cost
Edge geometry, especially in the area of the tip, to balance cut force and quality of cut with blade life
Angle of cut determined by blade shape

Vinyl Cutting Tips: The proper degree blade, the correct downforce, and the right blade lynx_bundle_special.gif (9633 bytes)depth guarantees quality cuts. Standard blades are 45 degrees. A standard or lower degree blade may not cut thicker materials because the blade gets buried in the material. A steeper, angled blade (60°) is tall enough to cut all the way through thick materials and pivots easier when cutting corners. The quality of the cut depends on the sharpness of the blade and the condition of the teflon strip. A cutter gauge helps you to precisely set the depth of your blade, which will extend your blade life significantly.
