|After a conductor has been cut it is then
prepared for the next step or for crimping. For this purpose, a specific length
of the conductor insulation has to be removed, while preventing damage to the
conductor. The length of the conductor insulation to be removed depends on the
terminal clamping point or the crimp to be processed.
stripping tools guarantee perfect results due to precise adjustment of the tool
to the corresponding insulation and the conductor cross-section.
Precision tools by Weidmüller guarantee that the user will always obtain
consistent, reliable stripping results.
|Stripping means the
cutting and removal of the insulation. The following must be ensured in
performing this task.
The stripping dimension must be observed and
neither the conductor nor the remaining insulation must be damaged.
avoid mistakes, use a stripping tool matched to the insulation and
cross-section of the conductor.
Do not use work knives or penknives
because the stripping quality when using such tools depends entirely on the
manual dexterity of the user. The quality is not consistent, even when the user
is highly skilled.
Preference should be given to hand-operated tools
that adjust automatically to the corresponding cross-section of the conductor.
They do not damage to the conductor during stripping and avoid
stripax® stripping tools guarantee a consistent stripping
result which complies with DIN regulations. The tools are rated for standard
dimension PVC insulation. Any PVC insulation thicknesses deviating from normal
can be set manually. The conductor stopper and integrated wire cutter allow
highly versatile use of the tools.
Special insulation types such as
Teflon, Silicone and Kapton require special stripping tools. These tools strip
the conductor with punch blades.
|DIN IEC 60352 part 2
contains reference to stripping faults which must be avoided:
||Correctly stripped conductor
||Insulation has not been cut properly
|Remains of the conductor insulation are still to be
found on the stripped conductor
|The conductor insulation has been damaged by the
|Single conductors have been damaged or cut off by the
|Single conductors have been twisted too tightly
|Single conductors are no longer twisted
