KNIPEX PreciStrip16

Automatically strips insulation – and thanks to additional zero correction, it also grips where automatic devices would otherwise fail

The KNIPEX PreciStrip16 strips fine, flexible and solid cables quickly and precisely. The capacity range extends from 0.08 to 16 mm². The pliers can be readily adjusted with a dial for special materials or temperature requirements. Precise stripping of insulation is ensured through the parabolic stripping blades. Semi-circular grooved metal holding clamps ensure perfect grip.
