Cable tie cutter by Vilso
The first Micro-Shear® flush cutter with cutting access along the entire length of its blades, offering an unrestricted cutting surface. Quickly and cleanly cuts cable ties, wire and soft plastics leaving no pinch or spike. Will also cut soft wire up to 12 AWG (2mm )featuring our patented Micro-Shear® cutting action. Ergonomically shaped, non-slip Xuro-RubberTM grips and a glare eliminating black finish ensure operator comfort. Non-protruding, lifetime warranted flat spring provides excellent “feel” without excessive spring tension. The Original Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter. Invented over 40 years ago and awarded US Patent 3774301 for it’s unique Micro-Shear® blade by pass cutting method. Xuron Micro-Shear® flush cutters ensure durability by design. Let’s use a little basic physics to illustrate how: If you generate 10 pounds of pressure on the grips of a conventional, compression type wire cutter to cut a wire, that 10 pounds of force must be dissipated somewhere (Law of Conservation of Energy). Part of it is dissipated into the severed section of wire, which is why it sails across the room. A portion travels down the lead wire and is dissipated into the component or solder joint, which is what the military gets upset about. The balance is dissipated into the opposing cutting edge of the cutter, which is why they get dull. Using a Micro-Shear® flush cutter requires only about half the pressure (approximately 5 pounds) to cut the same wire. Part of the force is dissipated into the severed section of the wire, but if you are using our patented lead retainer the wire won’t sail across the room. Because of our shearing cut, very little is dissipated into the component or solder joint, which keeps the military happy and the rest is dissipated into the opposing cutting jaw. Because of our blade by-pass, edge to edge contact is eliminated and the life of our Micro-Shear® flush cutter’s precision cutting edges is extended.
