Industrial Wire Strippers

What Are Wire Strippers?
Wire strippers are popular tools that can be found in the toolkits of soldering operators, electricians, mechanics, and many other professions. These tools, also referred to as cable strippers, offer the user a method of removing the insulation from a wire without damaging the copper wire inside.

 

How Do Wire Strippers Work?
Wire strippers will generally come with a series of holes, known as wire gauges, varying in size. These can be matched up to strip different diameters of wire.

Once the wire has been inserted into the correct gauge, the handles of the wire stripper can be squeezed together to sever through the plastic insulation that coats the wire.

The CK Tools range we sell offer you an adjustable gauge that lets you match up your wire with the exact diameter needed to strip the wire.

 

What Applications Require Wire Strippers?
As determined above, there are many types of applications that would greatly benefit from a wire stripping tool. Applications that require the attachment of wires will often require the wire insulation to be stripped before the electrical wiring is attached to a connector, second wire or another application. Such applications include soldering, splicing or crimping, all of which require direct access to the copper wiring underneath the insulation.

Wire strippers can be used by several operators including:

  • DIY enthusiasts
  • Wire strippers for soldering
  • Electricians
  • Mechanics

 

How To Strip A Wire With Wire Strippers
There are a number of steps that you should follow, in order to get the best results from your cable stripping tool.

  1. Firstly, you need to ensure that you have selected the right type of wire stripper for the application that you are undertaking. There are a range of wire stripper variations available including adjustable, insulated, sheath strippers and more. Also consider the diameter of the wire you intend to strip, along with the type of shielding on the wire and if any metal is present.
  2. Try to match the diameter of the wire with the holes on the jaw of the wire stripping tool. It is essential that you match this up correctly. Too big of a hole can lead to the wire insulation not being sufficiently cut. Alternatively, if you choose a hole that is too small you run the risk of damage or even severing the wire entirely.
  3. Open up handles of the wire stripper, before placing the wire into one side of the hole. Slowly compress the handles of the cutting tool until they can push down no further. This will cut the insulation of the wire. If the wire has not properly cut, then you can choose to use a gentle twisting motion. One quarter turn each way should do the job.
  4. The final step involves the removal of the wire insulation. To do this pull the wire stripper towards the open end of the wire. This should pull the insulation off the wire with ease!

 

Tips For Safe & Effective Use Of Wire Strippers
Just like with any tool, there are safety tips that the operator needs to adhere to, in order to ensure the safe and efficient use of wire cutting tools. Some of these are listed below:

  1. Don’t Strip Live Wires – It goes without saying that live electrical wires have the potential to cause injury. This is why you should always ensure that the wires you work on are not live before any work is undertaken. After use, check that there is no damage to the wires, or anything that could potentially lead to a hazardous electrical fault.
  2. Check The Wire Thickness – The thinner the wire, the more vulnerable to damage they are. You need to ensure that you use the appropriate wire stripping tool for thinner wires.
  3. Some Wires Require Professionals – The average person cannot use a wire stripper in every instance. There are some wires that require a fully trained electrician to carry out the works. Any kind of wall or ground installations, along with wire that is coated with coaxial, fall into this category.
