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 170-II ASF Flush Cutter is the original standard Xuron Micro-Shear fitted with Anti-Static hand grips and a factory installed lead retainer to reduce problems arising from flying cut leads. It features manufacture from a special alloy steel, CNC precision ground jaws heat treated to 56 Rockwell hardness for a long service life of up to 700,000 cuts within rated specification of soft wire up to 1.0mm. 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 ESD safe Xuro-Rubber ergonomic shaped non slip grips. The 170 series tools have a fine entry head for easy access to leads on high density Assemblies. They are finished with a matt Black Chemical oxide non glare 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.
