KNIPEX launch new StepCut Cable Shears

KNIPEX has announced the launch of its new StepCut Cable Shears, which can reduce the effort required to cut cables or wires by up to 40 per cent.

The StepCut makes it easier to cut single and multi-conductor cables made of copper and aluminium, up to a diameter of 15mm (50 mm²). Solid NYM cables can be cut easily and precisely up to a maximum of 5 x 4 mm².

The stepped blades, with a milled serrated edge on the front and a flat edge on the back, have been additionally induction-hardened. The innovative step cutting allows for a clean cut without the cables being crushed in the cutting process.

The KNIPEX StepCut is only 160 mm long and therefore weighs relatively little. In addition, the design of the handles enables an optimum cutting feel, even with larger diameters. A pinch guard also prevents injuries; the bolted joint makes the cable shears precise and smooth-running.

The StepCut is available in three versions: with a plastic coating, with multicomponent handles and VDE-tested multicomponent handles.
