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 LX-T series Flush Cutter is an uprated version of the original standard Xuron Micro-Shear. It features manufacture from a special high carbon alloy steel with extra thick 2.5mm thick cutting blades, an extra tapered profile, CNC precision ground jaws heat treated to 57 Rockwell hardness for a long service life of up to 700,000 cuts within rated specification of soft wire up to 20 swg (0.8mm). 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 sized for smaller hands and maximum maneuverability. The LX-T series tools have an extra tapered, ultra slim profile head for  access to leads in highly restricted areas on PCB Assemblies. They are finished with a glare resistant bright finish and have a very light weight of 48 gms for added precision during positioning. The precision and quality of the ground cutting edges allows reliable cutting of the finest guages of lead wire.
