KNIPEX introduces Wire Rope Cutter

June 20, 2019
The Wire Rope Cutter offers precise cutting power in a compact 6 1/4” design.

KNIPEX Tools introduced the Wire Rope Cutter for cutting high-strength wire ropes up to 5/32” and cable up to 3/16”. Now in a compact 6 1/4” design, the Wire Rope Cutter cuts with the same power and precision as many larger wire rope cutters on the market, according to the company.

The Wire Rope Cutter features precision-ground cutting edges and shear-type action for cutting cable and wire rope cleanly and evenly without the wire ends splaying or fanning out. The Wire Rope Cutter has a double-bearing, box joint design for greater stability and performance.

The Wire Rope Cutter is engineered with ball bearing steel for longer service life. A high-transmission joint design makes cutting up to 30 percent easier compared to similar cutters, according to the company. Other features include a thumb lock to secure the tool when not in use and an opening spring for easier use during repetitive cutting.

“With the new Wire Rope Cutter’s compact design and sharp cutting edges, customers can take on tough wire ropes and cables without sacrificing power or comfort,” said Peter Grable, product manager, KNIPEX Tools.
