Cut fine wire and cable from the front at an angle of 15° to the surface

Cutting at an angle of 15° to the surface - almost flush

In tight spaces, e.g. on printed circuit boards, cutting is often best done from above. Unlike with diagonal cutters, where the cutting edges are a relatively straight extension of the handle, the cutting edges of the Knipex 64 32 120 ESD electronics end cutting nippers are at a 15° angle to the handles. This permits an ideal view of the work area when working almost vertically to the surface.

The power delivery to the cutting edges and the measuring of manual force are both excellent thanks to the good leverage resulting from the short pliers head. The small bevel makes almost flush cutting possible.

Sophisticated design – designed for ergonomics and durability

These Knipex electronics end cutting nippers have a smooth operating box joint with zero backlash. Such joints are characterised by the fact that the inner handle is guided on both sides by two extensive bearing surfaces in the outer handle. This prevents the tilting movements which are typical with lap joints, and has a positive effect on the quality of cutting processes and tool life. In addition to oil hardening of the entire pliers, the cutting edges are induction hardened to at least 60 HRC. The low friction double spring is an advantage ergonomically. It produces a gentle, steady opening after cutting.

ESD protection from uncontrolled electrostatic discharge; safety rust protection

Sudden discharge resulting from electrostatic charging differences is a concern especially in electronics. In the case of the Knipex 64 32 120 ESD electronics end cutting nippers, the electrostatic energy is discharged in a constant, controlled manner via the handles. The handles are conductive – they are not insulating – so that a slow, safe charge equalisation is possible. The rust protection is also safe for sensitive electronic components. Instead of chrome-plating, the Knipex 64 32 120 ESD end cutting nippers have a mirror polish and a fine oil film as corrosion protection, so no pieces of chrome can peel off and fall onto printed circuit boards. The mirror polish in conjunction with a fine oil film provides perfectly adequate corrosion protection for the pliers during workshop use if the oil film is replaced occasionally.
