170-II Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter
Our world famous, patented original Micro-Shear® flush cutter sets the standard imitators can’t meet.We invented it.We perfected it. We were awarded the patent (U.S. Pat. 3774301). Shear cutting greatly reduces
cutting effort while providing the shear cut desirable in electronics assembly work. Less cutting effort means fewer fatigue related injuries and complaints. The ergonomically shaped, nonslip Xuro-Rubber™ grips, glare eliminating black finish and light weight ensure operator comfort. Ultra slim profile increases access
in high density areas. Flush cuts soft wire up to 18 AWG (1.0 mm).
The desoldering system that fits in the palm of your hand
The simple, one-handed operation of the XURON Wickgun™ eliminates the toolswapping, three-hands-required, process associated with conventional desoldering braid use. Your technicians work quickly and precisely with just a Wickgun™ and their soldering iron. Productivity is enhanced. In tests performed by XURON, technicians worked 3 to 5 times faster than they could with conventional desoldering braid on bobbins. This is a significant increase in productivity. At that rate your Wickgun™ pays for itself before lunch on its first day of use, increased productivity fully offsets your costs for replacement cassettes, and your Wickgun™ easily contributes $20,000 to $40,000 per year to your company in increased productivity.
Wickgun™ use can significantly reduce the “user cost” for your desoldering braid. Due to the inherently clumsy and time-consuming nature of conventional braid use, a 30-50% waste factor is not uncommon. Additionally, braid is commonly discarded when its temperature becomes too high for the technician's comfort and safety. Wickgun™ use eliminates these “hidden” desoldering braid costs. With all this in
mind, when deciding how many Wickguns you should purchase, ask yourself, “How much money do I want to save?”
