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

Unlike with diagonal cutters, where the cutting edges are a relatively straight extension of the handle, the cutting edges on the Knipex 64 32 120 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. In tight spaces, e.g. on printed circuit boards, cutting is often best done from above. Good leverage is developed due to the short pliers head, so that the power delivery to the cutting edges and the measuring of manual force are excellent. The small bevel makes almost flush cutting possible.

Sophisticated design – designed for ergonomics and durability

These 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. This prevents the tilting movements which occur with lap joints, and has a positive effect on the quality of cutting processes and tool life because the cutting edges always meet at the ideal angle to each other. 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.

High Knipex quality standards and safety rust protection

Instead of chrome-plating, the Knipex 64 32 120 end cutting nippers have a mirror polish and a fine oil film as corrosion protection. With occasional re-oiling of the surface, this rust protection is completely sufficient for workshop operation. As a result, for safety reasons these electronics pliers are also ideal for sensitive electronics environments. There are no pieces of chrome that could peel off and damage circuits. The quality machining of the pliers meets the requirements present in electronics and micromechanics: precision, function and reliability are of paramount importance.
