Knipex Tools has introduced a new series of angled cutters and pliers. The German-made Orbis tools meet the needs of workers while offering a versatile range of application. Designed with comfort and convenience in mind, the innovative 25-degree comfort angle makes the tools a natural extension of the user’s hand. The cable cutter (pictured above) produces clean cuts on aluminum cables, single and multiple wires, including soft copper up to 2/0 AWG without crushing or deformation. To provide safe operation the angled cable cutter is equipped with a locking mechanism when the tool is not in use. The cutters also come in a variety of sizes, suitable for different jobs. In addition to comfort, this new series allows better sight lines when working in confined spaces, providing the user with the ability to see what is being grabbed, pulled and cut, which is critical to getting the job done quickly, accurately and efficiently, the manufacturer says.
