The company set up in Luxembourg in 1963. In 1982, Norton Clipper revolutionized the market with the first ever laser-welded Diamond Blade. This method of attaching segments is truly superior to conventional brazing. Indeed, the bond which is created between the segments and the steel is actually stronger than the segment or the steel. This kind of blades allows also dry-cutting: the segments are welded to the steel and cannot separate from it, even if the blade is not water-cooled. The introduction of the laser-welded blades brought more safety and more versatility on the job. During the last 25 years, thanks to the new technology pioneered by its R&D department , Norton Clipper has been producing new types of blades that cut faster and longer, provide lower material costs and are safer.
