The TSK8000 Twist-Strip System is a manual tool for stripping the outer jackets on multiconductor cable. Its unique design allows the tool to follow the non-concentric shape of the twisted cable for a clean score.
The TSK8000 has adjustable blades that allow the tool to accommodate variances in the cable. Varying jacket thickness and cable diameter are two examples of common differences you may see in different lots of the same cable. Simple adjustments allow the user to set the cutting blades for a deeper or shallower score of the cable jacket.
A cable track precisely machined into each die set creates a controlled rotation of the dies/blades as the cable is moved along the cable. A simple 90° bend of the cable results in the jacket halves separating for removal, reducing the amount of force needed to remove the jacket.
The repeatable function of the tool reduces operator error and is up to 3 to 5 times faster than conventional methods.
