For gripping, aligning and installation work and for cutting

Knipex primarily manufactures the forged and oil-hardened snipe nose side cutting pliers for gripping, alignment and installation work. They deliver a second function in these areas that is important for assembly work. Their cutting edges are shaped to produce a bite type cut.

The cutters are additionally induction hardened, so that the Knipex 26 12 200 is even suitable for cutting hard wire. Thanks to the induction hardening of the cutting edges to approx. 61 HRC, cutting capacities of up to 2.2 Ø mm are produced on hard wire.

Inherently stable when twisted – particularly strong when cutting

The precision tips of the pliers made of vanadium electric steel are elastic and stable when twisted. This allows the manual force deployed to be well measured – forcefully where necessary. The cutting edges are near the joint which is advantageous for the transmission of force. The cutting capacities of Ø 3.2 mm achieved for medium-hard wire and Ø 2.2 mm for hard wire are impressive for professional users.

It is possible to reach areas in engine or machine rooms that are difficult to access

The very long tips of the Knipex 26 12 200 make it possible to grip low-lying components accurately and powerfully. Anyone who needs to attach a refrigerant pipe to the air conditioning evaporator or connect a hose onto a difficult to reach nozzle will immediately appreciate the qualities of the snipe nose side cutting pliers.
