Keeping your products in front of the World

Xuron Corporation’s legacy tool series, the Model 170-II Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters, have been used in industry for over 40 years. When first introduced, these cutters were used primarily for trimming component lead wires for through-hole printed circuit board manufacturing. Times and technology have changed since the days of through-hole PCBs but rather than facing shrinking demand, the market for these Cutters has expanded to include:

  • ✔️ Wire and Cable Processing
  • ✔️ Wire Harness Manufacturing
  • ✔️ Cord Set Manufacturing
  • ✔️ Home Electronics and Repair
  • ✔️ 3D Printing
