Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity and sensors, recently introduced the manufacturer’s new terminal cutter hand tool. The tool enables operators to easily remove side-feed, front-carrier strip and reeled terminals from their carrier strips – and in the process, avoid damaging products or creating sharp burs commonly associated with traditional wire snips.
TE Connectivity’s terminal strip cutter is a purpose-built tool with the single objective of making loose piece terminals from strips and reels. The product has an ergonomic design with enough handle force to manage large terminal sizes. It is also equipped with simple adjustment features to accommodate tension and varying terminal heights, depths and carrier strip lengths.
Not only is the tool lightweight, but it is also easy to use and affordable. The adjustable tool accommodates side-feed, front-carrier strips of varying sizes, but is not designed to cut end-feed, center-carrier or dual-carrier terminal strips. The device offers the precision needed to cut one terminal at a time, reducing waste.
