The Xuron® model 2175 is a versatile, durable, and ergonomic flush cutter that is used by manufacturers in a variety of industries. This cutter is USA-made and provides an excellent value for the price. It is available in three different models: the standard 2175, the 2175F with a lead retainer that keeps cut pieces of wire from flying, and the 2175AS with ESD safe grips for protection against static discharge.
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.
