Cut abutting, fine wire accurately – ESD protection for electronics

Extremely sharp cutting edges made from oil-hardened, high-grade special tool steel

The Knipex Electronic Super Knips is made from special tool steel. The cutting edges are ground without bevel and hardened to approx. 64 HRC for flush cutting. Thanks to the precision tips, it is also possible to cut fine wire accurately, e.g. wire touching enclosures and components. The Electronic Super Knips 78 71 125 ESD also cuts fibre optic cable.

Work involving dexterity: low weight and smooth operation

Great dexterity is needed when working on electronic components and in precision engineering. Due to its frictionless handle spring, the Knipex Electronic Super Knips 78 71 125 ESD is so smooth-running that energy can be dispensed very precisely – with dexterity. Opening spring and opening restrictor simplify work further. The integrated wire clamp prevents wire sections from springing back in an uncontrolled manner: a safety aspect, particularly when cutting wires in enclosures containing electronic assemblies.

ESD protection to prevent uncontrolled electrostatic discharge

Sudden discharge resulting from electrostatic charging differences is a concern especially in electronics. With the Knipex 78 71 125 ESD, 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. With the ESD protection through dissipative discharge, the Knipex 78 71 125 Electronic Super Knips satisfies the strict standards IEC TR 61 340-5, DIN EN 61 340-5 and SP Method 2472.

Brief overview

Precision pliers for the finest cutting work in electronics and precision engineering: shear cut with controlled micro cutting edge misalignment

Thanks to precisely shaped tips, also cut abutting wires accurately as from Ø 0.2 mm

Cutting capacity of soft wire Ø 0.2 -1.6 mm

Cutting capacity for medium-hard wire Ø 1.2 mm

ESD protection of electronics through conductive multi-component grips, there is a slow, controlled discharge of electrostatic energy

Very smooth operating thanks to frictionless handle spring

Production in accordance with the highest standards for optimal work results and a long service life

Wire clamp holds wire sections on the pliers and thereby prevents them springing back

Manufactured from high-grade special tool steel, oil-hardened and polished

Cutting edges additionally induction hardened, cutting edge hardness approx. 64 HRC
