Cable cutter – insulation
A properly selected insulating material – resistance for the passage of time and external factors, UV radiation, moisture and pollution. Construction prevents loss of insulating properties, allows for safety work. The insulating properties of tools ensure possible highest protection during PN-EN 60900.
Cable cutter – examples
In the wide range of cable cutter and stripper are: RC 15 cable cutter for cutting and stripping aluminium and copper single- and multistrand cables, outer diameter up to 15 mm and cross section up to 50 mm2. Using blades made of quality forged tool steel have big influence for durability of tool. This cable cutters are designed for cutting armoured cables and copper wire, cold drawn. Cable cutter have length of 170 mm and total weight of 210 g. Another cable shears are RC 15 S, additionally equipped with a spring and a specially shaped blades enabling one-handed cutting and ensuring cutting without cable crushing or deformation.
Cable shears RC 20, are used for cutting single and multistrand cables, aluminum and copper, are made from high quality alloy steel, properly heat treated and ground. Twin blades facilitates cutting thick wires outer diameter of 20 mm and a cross-section of 70 mm2. This product allows for initial cut in outer cutting are, final cut in inner cutting are. Do not use it fot armouned cables.
Talking about cable shears offer it is also worth mention about two-handed cable shears RC 27. They are equipped with optimised blades geometry which allows to minimize handforce needed for cutting, and also handles are made of special aluminium tube. These special features make work not so hard, and the tool is able to cope with cables cross section up to 150mm2. The total length is 500 mm.
If we need tools for hard work, we should look in the offer at RC 38, RC 52, but definitely hedge cable shears RC 100. Cable shears RC 38 with adjustable angle of the arm, which enables optimal width handle adjustment, especially perfect to work in tight spaces. The exceptional cutting quality provides optimised blades geometry and ratcheting mechanism. Cable shears are equipped with telescopic aluminum handles of length 550-700 mm, which allows to work in difficult conditions. They are designed for cutting single- and multistrand wires, aluminum and copper wires up to 280 mm2.
Cable shears RC 52, with blades made of quality forged tool steel, properly heat treated and ground are designed for cutting cables with an outer diameter up to 52 mm. The shape and dimensions of cable shears allows to cut the cables, even in hard accessible places. According to this cable shears has possibility of one-handed operation. The advantage of this cable shears is definitely that they cut cables of different diameters due to two step ratcheting mechanism, low handforce required.
Last tool in this group are cable shears RC 100. Suitable for cutting cables and wires Al and Cu coated with hard rubber or plastic having a diameter of 100 mm and a cross section of 960 mm2. Modern ratchet mechanism allows for cutting wires of different diameters and reversing of moving blade from any position and minimize the force required for cutting cables. Features that distinguish cable shears are blades made of quality forged tool steel, cutting cables of different diameters due to two step ratcheting mechanism, low handforce required and suitable for ovearhead lines and work in hard accessible places.
New tools in this group are cable shears RC 54, RC 54S and cable shears with telescopic handles RC100T.
