SACO, ME -A new ESD safe ergonomic wire cutter that features a tapered head for reaching into densely populated PCBs and has a lead retainer for assembly and repair applications is being introduced by Xuron Corp. of Saco, Maine.
The Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter is ESD safe and features a tapered head for reaching into tight spaces on PCBs and includes a lead retainer to prevent flying leads. Equipped with static dissipative hand grips, this precision cutter is made from highly alloyed steel and employs by-pass shear action cutting to produce clean, square cuts without spikes.
Easier to squeeze than compression-style cutters, the Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter conforms to ANSI/ESD.S20.20 and DOD-HDBK-263 specifications. The alloyed steel cutting edges are hardened to Rc 56-58 and the static-safe hand grips exhibit 106-109 ohms surface resistivity. The Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® ESD safe Flush Cutter sells for $27.25 (list).
Xuron offers a full line of static dissipative cutters and pliers.
