The cutter was originally developed for the paper industry by Dr. James d’Argaville Clark, an extremely active member of the pulp and paper industry. His experiences within the industry ranged from being a professor of pulp and paper science to a paper chemist and engineer. He served as the Chairman of the Delaware Valley chapter of TAPPI and was credited for writing many technical papers about the subject of pulp and paper. Dr. Clark was instrumental in developing many instruments that are still used today to meet industry standards including the JDC Precision Cutter.
Today, the design has evolved to make the base lighter while adding leverage with a new 20” long base for all 10” models. The cutting process remains the same, cutting test strips to an exact width and parallel throughout the entire blade length using the positive cutting action of the dual blades and precision ground base shear to cut both sides of the sample at once assuring a clean, accurate cut every time.
The precise cut made by a JDC Cutter is important to the test results that determine physical properties of materials being used to manufacture consumer products including tensile tests. When the measurement requires accuracy, the cutter meets a ±0.001 in tolerance level. Thwing-
