Techni-Tool Adds Precision Micro-Cutters
Precision, long-life micro-cutter.
Worcester, PA — Techni-Tool has added six new micro-cutter models to its line of Tec-Cut Infinity Elite electronics pliers and cutters. The six new tools allow users to cut electronic wires from 18 to 20 AWG. The cutters have micro-size heads, allowing for reaching into tight spaces, thus providing better control and accuracy. Cutter heads are available in oval and tapered styles in a choice of semi-flush, flush and full-flush cuts.

Infinity Elite tools use the highest quality ball-bearing steel heat-treated for resiliency and toughness. Results in outside tests conducted with four leading competitors show the force required to open and close the Infinity Elite cutters remained constant over time, but increased in three of the four competitors' cutters that were tested.

In addition, no blade damage or wear could be detected on the Infinity Elite tools, even after 20,000 constant cuts in the same blade spot, and under 40x magnification. The exclusive 2-component fully-dissipative handle combines a soft surface for gripping with a hard plastic core for strength. This unusual oil- and grease-resistant handle wears better and lasts longer than other ESD foam handles.

Stainless steel dual-leaf springs and matched bearing rings minimize metal-to-metal contact, extending tool life. A lap-joint blade design joined with a steel screw keeps the cutting edges in perfect alignment far longer than with rivets.
