About the Product

Xuron is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of precision grade ergonomic hand tools for the Electronics and Aerospace Industries. Xuron sets the benchmark for precision cutters thanks to their patented Micro-Shearing action. Conventional cutters use a compression type cutting action. Force from the cut is dissipated through the severed wire, downward into the component or solder joint, and through the cutting blades. With the Xuron Micro-Shearing action, much less force is dissipated through the severed wire and down into the solder joint, with most force dissipated through the cutting blades. Because the Xuron blades are precision ground with an offset bypass, blade edge to edge contact is eliminated. Benefits include 50% less effort to affect the same cut as normal cutters, reducing the risk of repetitive strain injury and fatigue, less stressing of solder joints and components, and a clean, square cut on the PCB lead ends.

The Xuron 440 Mini Shear is an ultra precise scissorcapable of cutting fine and delicate items with a clean square edge.  A fine tapered head provides the ultimate in precision positioning and control  to allow work in areas other tools cannot even enter. Features, manufacture from a special alloy steel, CNC precision ground extra sharp cutting edges heat treated to 56 Rockwell hardness for a long service life. Multiple patented attributes include the Xuron Micro-Shearing action, the Light Touch linear response return spring guaranteed for the life of the tool, and advanced Xuro-Rubber ergonomic shaped non slip grips. They are finished with a matt Black Chemical oxide non glare finish and have a very light weight of 50 gms for added precision during positioning. The precision and quality of the ground cutting edges allows reliable cutting of the finest guages of materials including plastics, foils etc., and soft metals up to 0.005" thick.
