Xuron Corp. (Saco, ME) has released a pair of wire cutters and pliers for grasping and tip-cutting soft lead wires in electronics production, assembly, and rework. The Xuron 170-II Micro-Shear Flush Cutter and Model 450S Pliers are ideal for working with wire from 1 mil to 18 Ga thick, and feature Light-Touch return springs, along with Xuro-Rubber cushioned hand grips. The pliers have serrated needle-nose tips that can hold a human hair. The cutters employ bypass cutting, which produces a clean, square cut using shear action, with only about half the effort required by convention compression-type cutters.
