Prevent Damage To Printed Circuit Boards By Using Wire Cutters With Lead Retainers

Xuron® Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter with Lead Retainer

When trimming lead wires from printed circuit boards, the last thing you want is to have the cut-off wires flying back onto the PCB and potentially causing damage.  Solution — Xuron® MIcro-Shear® Flush Cutters with Lead Retainers.

The Lead Retainer is a low profile metal “clip” that is installed during the manufacturing process.

It acts to hold cut-off wire and prevent it from flying onto the PCB (or your workspace in general).

All Xuron® Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters are optionally available with Lead Retainers.  For an in-house demonstration, please contact your local Xuron Corp. manufacturers Representative or Authorized Xuron Corp. Distributor.
