Ni80 Wiring Cutting Wire
The Crazy Wire Company are well known as suppliers of top quality Ni80 heat wiring cutting wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our high specification woven mesh products. Our brilliant staff are experts in producing our spools of round wire on our 6 rapid action winding machines. All spools are produced to carry a little extra length to make up for any waste when handling the product.
Nichrome 80 wire is a type of resistance wire made of nickel, chromium, and iron. The wire is commonly used in heating elements and resistance heating applications due to its high resistance and resistance to oxidation at high temperatures.
A 0.1mm Nichrome 80 wire would have a diameter of 0.1 millimetres and would be very thin and delicate. It would have high resistance and be able to generate heat when electrical current is passed through it. However, due to its small size, it would also have a limited current-carrying capacity and may not be suitable for high power applications.

FAQs About This Wire
What Is Cutting Wire?
Cutting wire is a type of wire that is specifically designed to be used in wiring cutting machines and tools. It is typically made of high-carbon steel, stainless steel, or other durable materials. The wire is usually thin and flexible, and is used to cut through a variety of materials such as metal, plastic, and rubber. Cutting wire can be found in different shapes, sizes and forms, such as straight, circular or diamond shape.
There are different types of cutting wire based on the cutting method, for example,
- Wire cutting EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) where the wire serves as the electrode to cut through a workpiece by sparking an electrical discharge between the wire and the workpiece.
- Cold wire cutting, which uses a high-pressure jet of water to cool the wire and flush away the debris as it cuts through the material.
- Hot wire cutting, which uses heat to melt the material as the wire cuts through it.
- These cutting wires are used in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and manufacturing.
Is Nichrome A Good Cutting Wire?
Nichrome cutting wire is a type of cutting wire that is made from an alloy of nickel and chromium, known as nichrome. Ni80 is known for its high resistance to corrosion and heat, as well as its ability to maintain a consistent temperature. This makes it ideal for use in cutting machines and tools that require precision and heat resistance.
One of the most common use of nichrome cutting wire is in hot wire cutting method, where the wire is heated to high temperatures using an electrical current. This melts the material as the wire cuts through it, allowing for clean and precise cuts. Nickel cutting wire is typically used to cut through materials such as foam, plastic, and rubber.
Nichrome wiring cutting material is also used in some other applications such as heating elements, heating wire, and furnace components due to its good resistance to oxidation and high-temperature stability.
How To Make A Homemade Hot Wire Cutter
A hot wire cutter is a tool that uses heat to cut through materials such as foam, plastic, or metal wire. To make a homemade hot wire cutter, you will need the following materials:
- A power source, such as a battery or DC power supply, to heat the wire.
- Nichrome or KA1 wire, which is a type of resistance wire that can withstand high temperatures and maintain its resistance when heated.
- A metal frame or support to hold the wire in place.
- Insulated wire or other material to create handles or grips for the hot wire.
- A switch or controller to regulate the power supplied to the wire.
Here is a simple, basic method for making a homemade hot wire cutter:
- Construct a metal frame to support the hot wire and hold it in place.
- Wrap the Nichrome wiring cutting wire or KA1 wire around the frame, leaving enough wire on each end to serve as handles.
- Attach the power source to the wire, either by soldering or using connectors.
- Wrap the handles with insulated wire or other material to protect your hands from the heat.
- Install a switch or controller to regulate the power supplied to the wire.
- Test the hot wire cutter by turning on the power and adjusting the heat. The wire should become hot enough to cut through foam, plastic, or metal wire.
Note: This is a basic method for making a hot wire cutter and it’s important to exercise caution and take appropriate safety measures when working with electricity and heat. It is also recommended to familiarize yourself with the relevant safety standards and guidelines before attempting to make or use a hot wire cutter.
What Can A Hot Wire Cut?
A hot wire cutter is a tool that uses a heated wire to cut materials, such as foam, plastics, and similar materials. The wire is heated to a high temperature using electricity, which causes it to melt through the material being cut.
Some common materials that can be cut with a hot wire cutter include:
- Expanded polystyrene foam (EPS)
- Extruded polystyrene foam (XPS)
- Polyurethane foam (PU)
- Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
- Polyethylene (PE)
- Polypropylene (PP)
