Designed for a lifetime
Every detail of the Cricut Explore experience has been thoughtfully designed, to make being creative easy and intuitive. The designers of Cricut Explore wanted to make a functional, beautiful, and enjoyable experience for a creative person. When designing the Cricut Explore, the team focused on perfecting the machine details.
Kevlar reinforced belts
The Cricut Explore belt mechanism is reinforced with a Kevlar polymer material best known for its use in bulletproof vests and helmets. This gives it superior lightweight strength and flexibility, as well as a very high degree of positioning accuracy and durability.
Premium German carbide blade
A totally redesigned blade was also necessary to ensure the most precise cuts. Working closely with metallurgy experts, we cast the blade tip in a tungsten-carbide alloy--one of the hardest grade alloys available. This finely grained metal resists wear and breakage, greatly extending the expected lifespan of the blade.
We performed extensive testing to ensure precise cutting of different shapes, sizes, and materials using the Cut Smart system and new blade design. Over 5,000 hours of standardized testing across hundreds of machines helped to ensure the cut accuracy of Cricut Explore.
Creative moments, day or night
We realize that creative sparks happen at different times--whether you're up in the early morning to help complete a last minute school project, you seize those DIY moments during baby's naptime, or the perfect idea pops into your head in the wee hours of the evening. The Cricut Explore machine is quiet enough to handle your needs without disturbing your life.
