The Xuron 9200ASF tapered-head Micro-Shear Flush Cutter with lead retainer and ESD-safe handles is designed for cutting soft wire up to 14 AWG (American Wire Gauge)/1.6 mm/0.064" in electronics, electrical, and telecommunications applications. The wire cutter has a tapered head for access into small or narrow spaces. The cutting blades are made from alloyed steel for durability, and they bypass one another for square cuts without spikes, reducing cutting effort and mechanical shock. Anti-static handle grips help prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD), and a lead retainer helps prevent flying leads and component shorts from stray leads. Precision wire cutters are typically used by electricians, electromechanical technicians, or telecommunications technicians to repair or install wiring.
Xuron Corp. manufactures precision hand tools such as wire cutters and strippers, scissors, and pliers for electronics, aerospace, plastic molding, wire processing, hobby, craft, jewelry, and fishing industries. The company, headquartered in Saco, Maine, was founded in 1971.
