64 72 120 Electronics End Cutting Nipper
- Precision pliers for ultra fine cutting work, e. g. in electronics and fine mechanics
- Sturdy, zero backlash box joint
- Low-friction double spring for gentle and even opening
- The polish or mirror polish together with a fine film of oil offer effective rust protection - no circuit faults caused by peeling chrome from plated tools
- Cutters additionally laser hardened, cutter hardness at least 56 HRC
- Oblique End Cutter, mini-blade with small bevel, head with recess, α = 35°
- Ball bearing chrome steel, oil hardened
Cut fine wire and cable at an angle of 35° to the surface
Cutting from the front at an angle of 35° to the surface – also 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 these electronics end cutting nippers are at an angle of 35° to the handles. This permits work that is almost vertical to surfaces from which wire, cable or components are protruding. 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. Due to their design, these electronics end cutting nippers are only suitable for soft wire.
Sophisticated design – designed for ergonomics and durability
These Knipex electronics end cutting nippers have a smooth operating box joint with zero backlash. Box 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.
High Knipex quality standards and safety rust protection
Instead of chrome-plating, the Knipex 64 72 120 electronics 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, these electronics pliers are also ideal for sensitive electronics environments for safety reasons. There are no pieces of chrome that could peel off and disrupt circuits. The quality machining of the pliers meets the requirements present in electronics and micromechanics: precision, function and reliability are at the top of the list.
