KNIPEX PreciStrip16 insulation stripper: Precise automatic stripping with fine adjustment

The KNIPEX PreciStrip16 automatically strips insulation – and thanks to a fine adjustment, grips where other automatic devices would fail

The application range of the KNIPEX PreciStrip 16 is huge: Fine, flexible and solid cables can be stripped quickly and precisely using this insulation stripper. The capacity range extends from 0.08 to 16 mm². Thanks to a fine adjustment, this new tool can automatically strip cables within its large capacity range, even where conventional automatic devices often fail. The KNIPEX PreciStrip 16 insulation stripper can be readily adjusted with a dial for special materials or temperature requirements. Parabolic stripping blades guarantee a precise cut. Semi-circular metal holding clamps ensure a perfect grip. The key component of this high-tech insulation stripper are the parabolic stripping blades that first cut the insulation of fine-stranded or solid round cables, then automatically strip it off backwards. The blade pair largely encloses the insulation and is thus suitable for many flexible materials.

A firm grip on all cable types

Semi-circular grooved holding clamps ensure a good grip and hold practically any insulation material securely in place. The KNIPEX PreciStrip 16 insulating stripper also features a cable cutter on top, which reliably cuts cables within a capacity range up to 16 mm². It has an adjustable length stop for accurate repeat work.

Brief overview

Precise stripping from the fine wire to solid round cables in the capacity range of 0.08 to 16 mm²

Excellent grip provided by rounded grooved holding clamps and precise cut thanks to parabolic blades

Fine adjustment allows accurate adjustment for special materials or temperature requirements.

With cable cutter for multi-strand cable from 0.08 to 16 mm²

With tether attachment point, suitable for KNIPEX Tethered Tools accessories

Labelling field for personalisation

With an adjustable length stop for precise, consistently accurate repeat work

Comfortable operation thanks to an ergonomic two-component handle

Fine adjustment for special insulation materials and variable temperatures

Many automatic insulation strippers fail when it comes to special materials such as very soft insulating materials or when working in extremely hot or cold conditions. To further expand the area of application of the KNIPEX PreciStrip16, it can be flexibly pre-adjusted for such special conditions by means of a dial with tactile detent positions.

All cable insulations can be stripped flexibly or at a consistent length.

It's so simple: Insert the cable up to the adjustable length stop and the robust holding clamps grip the cable securely.

Cut and... stripped

The parabolic blades cut the insulation without damaging the conductor. The mechanism of the high-tech PreciStrip 16 insulation stripper automatically removes the cut material.

Clean cut

Done: The KNIPEX PreciStrip16 removes the insulation cleanly with just one squeeze of the hand.

Bonus function: cable cutter

Work faster: The cable cutter on the top cuts flexible cables up to 16 mm².

Can be personalised using the labelling field

You don't want to lose professional tools: Use the labelling field to mark the KNIPEX PreciStrip16 as your personal insulation stripper.

Better cutting into the insulation material

The parabolic blade pair (visible at the top behind the holding clamp) largely encloses the insulation and is therefore suitable for a wide variety of flexible materials. The semi-circular grooved holding clamps in front of the blades hold virtually any insulation material securely in place. When the pliers are actuated, the blades first cut the insulation and then automatically strip it off.

Tether attachment point for KNIPEX Tethered Tools accessories

With the KNIPEX Tethered Tools system, the PreciStrip16 can be secured against falling by means of the practical tether attachment point: Protect people, tools and materials around you! The insulation stripper is thus variably secured and readily to hand at all times.

Huge capacity range

The ingenious mechanism is truly remarkable: The PreciStrip16 can strip all cable sizes between 0.08 and 16 mm².
