Stripping tool sets standard for precise conductor preparation
13 May 2010
Weidmuller has introduced the fourth generation of its stripax stripping tool for flexible and solid conductors with PVC insulation, multi-conductors and thin ribbon cables. Among customer-requested enhancements are a detachable grip plate that allows different handle sizes to be created, comfortably accommodating both large and small hands, plus a compact and lightweight 190mm tool length, 175g weight and a hinged, protective cover for the cutting edges. This last feature prevents accidental damage to the conductors and allows quick and safe stripping.
stripax offers a novel feature called 'partial stripping', which leaves the insulation off-cut on the conductor, preventing the conductor from fanning out. This simplifies the insertion of the conductor into wire end ferrules and other connector formats. The blades can be changed quickly and easily simply by removing the clamping jaws. The tool is also easily personalised using an ESG device marker.
An integral device avoids insulation off-cuts being stuck between the stop and the blade, while sliders simplify the adjustment of both the stripping length and the insulation thickness. The maximum stripping length has been extended from 18 to 25mm, and the tool can be adjusted to 'thin' or 'thick' insulation material.
In addition to stripping tools, Weidmuller's range includes tools for dismantling, cutting, crimping, screwing and testing. All of these comply with the latest relevant standards and offer maximum precision and productivity.
