SACO, ME--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - Xuron Corp. has introduced a new ESD safe ergonomic wire cutter that features a tapered head for reaching into densely populated PCBs and has a lead retainer for assembly and repair applications.

The Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter is ESD safe and features a tapered head for reaching into tight spaces on PCBs and includes a lead retainer to prevent flying leads. Equipped with static dissipative hand grips, this precision cutter is made from highly alloyed steel and employs by-pass shear action cutting to produce clean, square cuts without spikes.

Easier to squeeze than compression-style cutters, the Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter conforms to ANSI/ESD.S20.20 and DOD-HDBK-263 specifications. The alloyed steel cutting edges are hardened to Rc 56-58 and the static-safe hand grips exhibit 106-109 ohms surface resistivity.

The Xuron® Model 9200ASF Micro-Shear® ESD safe Flush Cutter sells for $27.25 (list). A full line of static dissipative cutters and pliers is offered.
