Stripping Tool Design
A high quality conductive connection requires the proper removal of the cable sheath and careful stripping of individual conductors. The cable sheath can be removed quickly and proberly using a suitable sheath removal tool. The individual conductors must be stripped clean to the correct length and without damage in the contact area. Stripping tools are designed with stripping holes to make one or more defined conductor cuts.
Pliers with circular cutting holes are only suitable for stripping the cross-section they are designed for. Risk of confusion, which leads to conductor damage, arises when there are several hole diameters. Therefore, care must be taken when choosing the pliers to use for a particular job. Self-adjusting insulation strippers automatically adjust to the diameter or insulation thickness. This greatly aids users as the risk of damaging the conductor is eliminated. Cables up to 16mm2 can be stripped using these tools. The cutting depth of the blades can be closely adjusted for different materials, while the length stop facilitates series stripping.
