For the highest demands on quality
Industrial production is characterised by a high level of efficiency. Every work step in assembly and production has to be right, downtimes should be as short as possible.
Against this background, pliers have a very simple and at the same time challenging task in industrial production: They have to provide real support to achieve maximum productivity.
Flat-nose pliers, which are suitable for various assembly works, can save valuable time in everyday work that would otherwise be lost due to tool changes.
Cutting pliers such as cable cutters are only of valuable help, if they still do their job convincingly after intensive use.
One thing is clear: the nature and construction of industrial pliers must now be more specialised with the increased variety of materials to be processed.
Wire cutters for particularly hard or tough wires are looking for the perfect cut, regardless of which pliers are required in the industry: As a rule, only professional tools are able to cope with the daily stresses and strains.
Manual pliers from KNIPEX
At KNIPEX we have been among the ranks of successful German industrial companies for over 130 years. Therefore, it is no surprise that our engineers have a very special understanding of your very special requirements. In other words, pliers from KNIPEX are indispensable when the highest quality standards are expected. We prove this to you at all corners and ends, whether it is handling in production, assembly or maintenance. For example, with installation pliers, thanks to the smooth gripping surfaces, they do not damage the cores of wire ferrules. With pincers made of special tool steel for tough applications.
Or with circlip pliers that can grip and spread even the slimmest circlips to then mount them on the shaft.
The list of our hand tools and their special benefits could be continued almost indefinitely. Testing them will, however, give you the best impression. You will see: At KNIPEX, we do everything to ensure that for every model of pliers the right handle design goes hand in hand with optimised force distribution and a low tool weight.
The pliers wrench is already a classic and replaces a whole set of wrenches. Available in different sizes for every application, it grips all wrench sizes in its work area continuously and firmly, metric and imperial, absolutely parallel and without damaging the surfaces. Thanks to its large force amplification, it is also ideally suited for gripping, holding, pressing and bending a wide variety of workpieces.
Wire rope cutter
The wire rope cutter 95 62 160 cuts high-strength wire ropes up to Ø 4 mm up to 30% lighter than shears of conventional design. In addition, the precise and stable guidance of the cutting edges significantly increases the service life – especially with intensive use. All this is made possible by the unique, patent-pending joint construction.
It is not on first sight that you see how strong the KNIPEX X-Cut® is. At only 160 mm in length, it is perfect for any wire, from very fine strands to cables with a thickness of 12 mm. It is always there when it comes to cutting cable ties, adhesive tape, copper, steel and even spring wire up to Ø 2.2 mm with little effort. Its box joint, the double side guide and a double-bearing joint axis ensure maximum stability and durability.
