Professionally cut all wire ropes and crimped end sleeves and end caps
The high-performance tool for repairs, structural steelwork, trade fair construction etc.
Typical application areas of the Knipex wire rope cutters include the following: the broken clutch cable of the classic car is replicated because no original parts are available. New handbrake cables on truck trailers are produced from cable sold by the metre. These wire rope cutters from Knipex are the ideal tool in these and many other cases. With cutting capacities of up to Ø 7 mm in the case of stranded Cu cable and up to Ø 5 mm with wire rope, they are suitable for all instalation work and work in workshops.
Press end caps on cables and end sleeves on Bowden sleeves
Two valuable additional functions on the Knipex wire rope cutters replace two tools. With the accurately shaped crimping dies for end sleeves and end caps, Bowden cables and Bowden cable sleeves can be directly assembled after cutting. After shortening, end sleeves are pressed on to Bowden cable sleeves to prevent the risk of injuries.
Comfort instaled: adjustable bolted joint, opening spring and pawl
The space-saving, inset opening spring provides added comfort, saving the user one hand movement during each cutting operation. As soon as manual force is withdrawn, the spring opens the pliers automatically. Those who cut wire rope frequently will quickly learn to value this feature. For transport, the wire rope cutters are secured using the pawl to prevent inadvertent opening. The adjustable bolted joint permits accurate, permanently zero backlash operation.
Knipex quality – the wire rope cutters
The wire rope cutters from Knipex are a cutting tool with special additional functions for assembling Bowden cables and are, for example, suitable for structural steelwork (railings, suspensions etc.), trade fair construction, agriculture, the motor trade, horticulture, apparatus engineering, servicing and repair work.
Those who work professionally with tools every day expect a quality that permits simple and safe work. The tool must also last for many years of hard use. We forge our tools from quality materials, machine them with high precision on modern machinery and harden them with careful multiple stage heat treatment.
