Hand Held Pneumatic Wire Stripping Tool



WSP-1630Compact Design allows hand-held tool to be used in confined areas (7" x 2.5").

Light Weight construction (1.5 pounds) and pneumatic actuation system minimize operator fatigue and carpal tunnel injuries.

Fast, smooth stripping operation results in maximum quality wire preparation at a production rate unattainable with hand operated mechanical strippers.

Compatibility with common, commercially available stripper blades, grippers, and other components makes the unit economical, and it assured a wide range of applications with all types of wire.

WSP-1630Rotatable Head permits left or right handed operation.

Optional L-5270 Transparent Adjustable Wire Stop may be used for precise, repeatable operations.

Bench Mount is also available for WSP-1630.

Adjustable Speed Control allows the operator to regulate the speed of the stripping operation by simply rotating the adjustment collar which is a part of the air hose. This enables greater accuracy and control of the wire stripper.

The WSP-1630 series Pneumatic Wire Stripper is the ultimate combination of performance, reliability, and portability. It was developed in cooperation with major aerospace contractors addressing their needs for a reliable, simple to operate pneumatic wire stripper utilizing the blades and accessories which are certified and inventoried within their existing facilities.

The WSP-1630 part number applies to the basic pneumatic wire stripper frame with WL5211 blades (less accessories), which accommodates most size 16 AWG and smaller wires. Blades, pads and accessories to cover a variety of wire types and sizes can be ordered and factory installed.
