FLRST Stripping Tools the cable end preparation on semi rigid
cable (especially after bending), is quick and precise. Single,
dual, and triple steps can be made simultaneously in less
than two seconds. Our tools will strip cable sizes from 0.008
inch (0.20mm) to 0.250 inch (6.35mm).
Strip lengths are repeatable within a tolerance of +/- 0.002
Specialized versions of the tools are available to chamfer the outer diameter of semi rigid cable rendering the end flush without burrs. Optional features include manual and automatic slug ejectors for extremely short conductor lengths.
A Flush Cut version of the tool reduces the cut-off burr to a 0.001 inch (0.0254mm) to 0.003 inch (0.762mm) change in diameter depending on the cable diameter. This is as close to burr free that is possible without using a specialized tool. "Close to the bend" and extra long strips are easily accomplished.
We also manufacture a Facing Tool that will precisely remove residual dialectric, solder, etc. from semi rigid cable once it is soldered in a SMA Plug body.
any application where the cable must be bent first, FLRST
tools need to be used. There
are no other tools on the market that will trim semi
rigid cable after U-bending it to a leg to leg separation
of down to 0.275 inch (7mm). Further, use of this tool
will eliminate cable waste.
