VDE tested pliers for installation and assembly work and for cutting
Knipex manufactures these forged, oil-hardened snipe nose side cutting pliers with dip-insulated handles for installation, supply and assembly work and for powerful cutting.
The cutting edges of the pliers are shaped to produce a bite type cut. The cutting edges are additionally induction hardened to approx. 61 HRC so that the Knipex 26 27 200 can even be used to cut hard wire.
Inherently stable when twisted – particularly strong when cutting
The precision tips at an angle of 40° made of vanadium electric steel are elastic and stable when twisted. This allows the manual force deployed to be well measured – forcefully where necessary. The cutting edges are near the joint which is advantageous for the transmission of force. This produces impressive, high cutting capacities of Ø 3.2 mm for medium-hard wire and Ø 2.2 mm for hard wire.
In the contr. cabinet, on a machine, on an electr. motor: components and wires can be reached easily
The very long tips of the VDE tested Knipex 26 27 200 allow you to work efficiently wherever space is tight. Whether this is on unfavourably positioned terminals, in junction boxes or in control cabinet construction: when using these pliers, their advantages will become clear. Wherever lines and wires need to be held, fed and cut, the qualities of the snipe nose side cutting pliers from Knipex will be appreciated. The quality chrome plating offers good protection against dirt and corrosion.
