General Information

To strip insulation from cable there are, for example the EMBLA, TOR and ODEN ranges, that strip from 0.02 mm² up to 40 mm² (approximately). The tools are characterised by high precision, ergonomic adaptation, user friendliness and reliability.

Tools are available in several variants for cutting Cu and Al cable up to approximately Ø 85 mm. In addition to the simple mechanical tools that cut cables up to Ø 20 mm, there is a wide range of hydraulic tools for cutting cable up to approximately Ø 85 mm.

The size of the conductor that the tools can handle mainly depends on the type of conductor to cut; whether it is a low or medium voltage cable and whether it is, for example. a Solid Class 1, Flexible Class 5 or Stranded Class 2 Conductor. The hardness of the conductor’s material also affects the results. For example, the PCT54C is capable of cutting type Cu FKKJ 4 x 95 mm² low voltage cable or Al AKKJ 4 x 240 mm² or medium voltage cable type Al AXLJ 3 x 150 mm². The insulation takes some space on the medium voltage cable, which is why it can’t be restrictive.
