Xuron's Precision Cutter Removes Parts From Plastic Sprues Cleanly

SACO, ME--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - Xuron Corp. has introduced a precision flush cutter that removes parts from plastic sprues cleanly, without damage, and has soft rubber cushioned grips and a built-in return spring. This tool is designed to cut fast with minimal effort, for workers who require an ergonomic cutting tool for a full eight-hour shift.

The Xuron® Model 2175A Maxi-Shear™ Flush Cutter is ideal for degating plastic parts from sprues because it employs "by-pass cutting" to achieve a clean, flat cut, rather than squeezing and deforming the parts like conventional compression-type cutters. Designed to fit comfortably in large and small hands and cut rapidly, this precision cutter has soft rubber grips, a Light Touch™ return spring, and a glare-eliminating black finish that is easy on the eyes.

Constructed from high carbon steel, the Xuron® Model 2175A Maxi-Shear™ Flush Cutter is shaped to provide full contact with the hand and proper leverage, without cumbersome finger loops. This ergonomic hand tool is well suited for assembly and inspection personnel who use a precision cutter for their entire working shift and are working with parts that need to be cleanly cut.

The Xuron® Model 2175A Maxi-Shear™ Flush Cutter is priced at $18.95 (list). A complete catalog of cutters, pliers, and forming tools is available online and in-print.
