Versatile, insulated diagonal cutters, 180 mm long

The classic for the craftsman’s everyday work – insulated up to 1000 V

The 180 mm long Knipex diagonal cutters are a powerful, quality tool for discerning users.

From the shape of the head through to the polish and hardness of the cutting edges, the Knipex 70 06 180 is customised for the diverse cutting tasks in the day-to-day work of electricians and mechatronics engineers.

They are insulated using multi-component grips in accordance with the insulation standard IEC 60900 / DIN EN 60900.

Strong, universal cutting capacity

With their cutting capacities of up to Ø 2.5 mm on hard wire (e.g. wire rope fibre) and up to Ø 4.0 mm on soft wire (e.g. copper wire), the Knipex 70 06 180 diagonal cutters offer a broad range of applications.

The long cutting edges make them ideal for cutting cable. The extremely carefully and precisely machined cutting edges enable even very fine stranded wire to be cut accurately – up to the tips of the cutting edges. This is a great advantage where space is restricted, for example when shortening fine stranded wires in junction boxes or during work on distribution boxes.

Tough and durable

We forge the Knipex diagonal cutters from vanadium electric steel and make them strong by warming them and then quenching them in oil. To achieve a permanently accurate cut we additionally use high-frequency current to give the cutters a hardness of approx. 62 HRC. Chrome plating is effective rust protection that pays off during outdoor use, for example. Thanks to the chrome plating, the diagonal cutters are particularly easy to clean.

Knipex diagonal cutters: precise cuts right up to the tips of the cutting edges

One can see the quality of diagonal cutters by their cut. Knipex diagonal cutters deliver lasting high performance. In addition to the quality forged metal parts made of vanadium electric steel, the most important quality criteria at Knipex include the precise machining of the tool steel manufactured in Germany.

The material is cut cleanly. The length and sharpness of cutting edges are geared to high performance on the Knipex 70 06 180 – even in confined spaces. The high quality and degree of hardness of the cutting edges guarantees a long service life.

For work on electrical installations – assuming that the fitter has had the necessary training.

Slim head shape for use when working in confined spaces.

Accurate cut right into the tips of the cutting edges.

Quality material and precise machining for a long tool life.
