The precision gripping pliers for fine installation work

Tips at an angle of 45°: 115 mm long for a great deal of freedom of movement even where space is restricted

There is little room to move when working on electronic equipment, printed circuit boards and precision constructions such as measuring equipment or delicate apparatus. A compact tool is therefore needed which can also be used to work well even in poorly accessible areas.

With a length of just 115 mm and their slim, flat head, the 35 42 115 ESD electronics pliers from Knipex are the ideal tool for the delicate gripping, holding and bending of sensitive components. The gripping surfaces are smooth ground to protect sensitive surfaces. The tips are at a 45° angle for ideal access also to concealed parts.

Smooth operating and accurate, with box joint design and double spring

The gripping, holding and bending of small and sensitive components requires the accurate, well-measured transmission of manual force to the component. The mechanics of the 35 42 115 ESD are very finely adjusted. The box joint is solid and smooth operating, because the inner handle is guided on both sides between the two extensive bearing surfaces of the outer handle. This ensures precise running without any tilting effect. The low friction double spring supports the gentle opening of the pliers, which relieves strain, especially during frequently recurring work.

ESD protection from uncontrolled electrostatic discharge; safety rust protection

Sudden discharge resulting from electrostatic charging differences is feared in electronics because it can damage components. With the Knipex 35 42 115 ESD electronics pliers, the electrostatic energy is discharged in a constant, controlled manner continuously via the conductive handles. This avoids high potential differences between component and tool. There is no sudden discharge. The rust protection is also safe for sensitive electronic components. There is no chrome-plating, therefore no pieces of chrome can peel off and fall onto printed circuit boards. The mirror polish in conjunction with a fine oil film applied in the factory provides complete corrosion protection for the pliers during workshop use. It is sufficient for the oil film to be replaced occasionally.

ESD – electrostatic discharge

With these pliers, electrostatic energy is discharged in a controlled manner via the handles. This protects components at risk from electrostatic discharge.

45° angle: good accessibility

Components can also be reached well in confined spaces because pliers are at angled at 45° at the front.

Force can be carefully measured

Sensitive parts such as plastic plug connectors can be gripped securely using the smooth operating pliers.
