Xuron 3D Printer Hand Tools Feature Filament Cutter and Pliers

SACO, ME--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2015) - Xuron Corp. has introduced two ergonomic hand tools that are ideally suited for removing support material from a 3D print, trimming filament, and servicing the printer itself.

Xuron® 3D Printer Hand Tools feature the Model 170-II Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter which has a glare-eliminating black finish for optimum visibility when trimming filament and cleaning up prints. For holding filament and removing post printed support struts, the Model 450 Tweezer-Nose™ Plier has a needle nose precise enough to hold a human hair.

With a track record of thousands of hours usage in electronics assembly, the Xuron® 3D Printer Hand Tools have contoured, non-slip soft rubber hand grips and a Light-Touch™ return spring. The Model 170-II produces a clean, square cut using shear action and both ergonomically designed tools are made from alloyed steel and hardened for high reliability and long life.

Xuron® 3D Printer Hand Tools are priced separately: Model 170-II Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter is $9.05 (list) and the Model 450 Tweezer-Nose Plier is $17.10 (list). A catalog is available upon request.
