High precision small oval cutters are the perfect tool for soft wire cutting in electronics assembly. Additionally, these cutting tools are ideal for component lead cutting. Typical applications for these wire cutters include electronics and medical device assembly, labs and general use with printed circuit board repair and rework.
The most popular tool is the Oval Head Wire Cutter. The top of these cutters is only slightly pointed or relieved to preserve its characteristic durability. The more metal on the cutting end, the longer the life of the tool. Oval head cutters, with a lot of metal in the head, are best able to handle the repeated shock of the cutting load. We also combine an oval shape with full relief in the Oval Relief Head Wire Cutter.
