AZTC Hot Cut System

Designed specifically for fabric graphics cutting and finishing.

AZTC Hot Cut System
Foster Keencut’s AZTC Hot Cut offers a standard of straight, square and clean cutting. Your AZTC Hot Cut System includes:

  • Sabre Cutter Bar and Base
  • AZTC Heat Knife Carrier
  • Silicone tape for a heat resistant surface*

*AZTC Heat Knife & tempered glass sold separately. It is recommended to use 1/4" tempered glass for a long term heat resistant surface. Heat Knives operate most efficiently on tempered glass surfaces, which do not absorb heat (unlike wood and metal surfaces), ensuring maximum blade heat for the most accurate cuts.

What You Can Expect From the Hot Cut System:

Accuracy Human errors and makeshift straight edges are now a thing of the past. The Heat Knife cuts approximately 1/4” from the edge of the Sabre cutter bar, ensuring straight line cuts in the same location every time.

SpeedYour shop can accommodate today’s high-demand fabric graphics – and more of them! Using the heated blades of the HSGM knifes, your operators can quickly cut and seal the edges of synthetic fabrics. Eliminate the time associated with cumbersome hand-cutting and final trimming of frayed or unraveled edges.

Safety The Heat Knife Carrier is safe to use. The heating mechanism is activated only when the spring-loaded trigger is depressed by a center post. As soon as it is released, the heating element automatically turns off. A left production stop also reduces contact between the warm Heat Knife and nearby materials.

Perfect for Cutting and Sealing Synthetic:

  • Fabrics
  • Fiber
  • Cords
  • Ropes
  • Belting
  • Webbing


  • Cutting accuracy – Heat Knife Carrier consistently cuts 1/4 inch from the aluminum extrusion bar.
  • Safety – Automatic shut-off of the heating mechanism when the Heat Knife is released.
  • 5 year general warranty on Cutter
  • 20 year warranty on Cutter’s bearings

Does not include the recommended 1/4" glass cutting surface for use beneath the heat knife.

The simple-to-attach Heat Knife Carrier includes a spring-loaded adjustment for tightening and fixes directly to the cutter’s aluminum extrusion bar.
