The Xuron® 440’s ergonomic design makes these mini-scissors easy and safe to use

Ergonomics is the study of how people work. It helps people to use tools in a way that is comfortable for their bodies. In an industrial setting, this means that small tools can be used in a way that does not cause pain or injuries.

The Xuron® 440 uses a low profile return spring instead of awkward finger loops, which always returns the mini-scissors to the open position after cutting. Grips are cushioned with soft rubber for increased comfort. Its comfort, ease-of-use, and even its size enhances precision cutting. This design is especially advantageous for users with arthritic hands, and it accommodates both left and right-handed use. Due to its compact size, the handles of the 440 provide similar leverage to that found in pliers.
