1. What is a wire stripper
The wire stripper is an indispensable tool when making thin cables. Its main function is to strip off the two layers of insulation on the outside of the thin cable wires.

There are three blades on the wire stripper, which are used to peel off the outer insulating layer, the middle metal shielding layer and the inner insulating layer. The cutting depth of the blade can be achieved by adjusting the corresponding position of the hexagonal inner nut with the screw provided with the knife. In the clockwise direction, raise the blade, and the cutting depth will increase; in the counterclockwise direction, lower the blade, and the cutting depth will become shallower.

2. Specifications of wire strippers
140 mm, 160 mm, 180 mm (all full length).

3. The material of the wire stripper
The blade is made of T7, T8, and 45 steel. The clamp body is made of Q235 steel. The casing is made of polyvinyl chloride plastic.

4. Structural characteristics of wire strippers
Using the principle of leverage, when stripping the wire, first hold the clamp handle so that one side of the clamp head clamps the other side of the wire, and the insulation layer of different wires can be stripped through the different blade holes of the blade.

5. The composition of wire strippers
It is composed of a knife edge, a crimping mouth and a clamp handle. The clamp handle of the wire stripper is covered with an insulating sleeve with a rated working voltage of 500V.

6. How to use wire strippers
a. According to the thickness of the cable, select the corresponding stripping knife
b. Put the prepared cable in the middle of the blade of the stripping tool and choose the length to be stripped
c. Hold the handle of the stripping tool, clamp the cable, and slowly peel off the outer skin of the cable
d. Loosen the handle of the tool and take out the cable. At this time, the metal of the cable is neatly exposed, and the other insulating plastics are intact.

7. The purpose of wire strippers
Wire strippers are one of the tools commonly used by inside electricians, motor repairs, and instrument electricians. It is used by a dedicated power supply worker to strip the surface insulation layer of the wire head.
