Xuron Corporation’s Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters are categorized by Series – each having their own unique features and benefits. Here, we will introduce you to our LX Series Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters and identify how they differentiate from our other cutters.
Recently we’ve had a few questions from customers asking how to replace springs on their tools and how to keep them (tools) cleaned and well maintained. I thought I’d share……
Five years ago I wrote a blog post about Xuron® Tools for 3D Printing. At that time, 3D printers were not readily accessible to the average consumer or small manufacturer. They were mainly used for making prototypes and everything about the process seemed intimidating (at least to me).
Speed ahead to 2020 and 3D printing has evolved. It seems there is nothing that cannot be created with this technology – even human organs and body parts (known as bioprinting). 3D printing in 2020 also gave way for many people to get creative during time extended time at home. We all saw stories of people making face mask extenders, face shields and more.
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:
Cable Ties, also known as tie wraps or zip ties, are commonly used in the industrial sector for bundling wire, cable and cords to keep them neat and organized. Consumers also regularly use them to secure totes, luggage and retail items. Their strength makes them appealing, but when cut without the right tool, it’s easy to cut or scratch yourself with a sharp edge. Our Cable Tie Cutter makes the task easier and safer.
Cable ties should always be cut flush to the termination point, leaving no spike on the cut end. This is especially important in a manufacturing environment. The spike is what could cause scratches or cuts to people doing wire and cable work.
Xuron Corporation’s Model 2275 Cable Tie Cutter offers an effective and safe solution for cutting plastic and nylon cable ties up to 7 mm wide. And, it leaves a nice flat cut on the cable tie.
