Eine Abisolierzange entfernt die Kunststoffummantelung von den Kabeldrähten, weil für eine leitende Anschlussfähigkeit der blanke Draht benötigt wird. Dabei kann zwischen einer automatischen Abisolierzange und einer manuellen Abisolierzange unterschieden werden. Die automatische Abisolierzange passt sich dem Außendurchmesser der Leitung automatisch an, bei der manuellen muss dieser erst eingestellt werden. Die Stripax Abisolierzange von Weidmüller und die Knipex Abisolierzangen gehören zu den bekanntesten Produkten.

What is meant by stripping?
Part of the insulation of an electrical conductor, such as a wire or stranded wire, is removed. This exposed or stripped piece is required for conductive connection.
What exactly is a wire stripper?The purpose of this particular tool is to simplify the stripping of cables and other electrical wires. The tool can still be operated by hand or used electronically.
When stripping, some things must be taken into account, because the quality and operational safety of the electrical connections can be negatively affected. This can occur, for example, due to indentations caused by the careless removal of insulation. To avoid this, wire strippers are used, as their specially shaped head provides a stable grip.
Wire strippers can be used even by inexperienced employees, as their use does not require any special expertise. Operating an electric wire stripper, on the other hand, requires more prior knowledge, since information such as the wire diameter must be specified.
To remove special thermoplastic insulation from cables, a thermal stripper is required.
Using a manually operated wire stripper always follows these three basic steps:
1) Setting the set screw correctly - the end of the cable is placed in the attachment gap for this purpose. This must be facing away from the set screw. Now the pliers can be closed carefully until the entanglement is stopped by the cable. The screw is now turned open or closed until it touches the mating wing.
2) Twist off the sheathing - the stripper must now be twisted once around the length of the previously pinched piece of cable. To ensure that only the insulation is twisted off, care should be taken to ensure that this is facing inwards.
3) Pulling off the jacket - with some effort of force, the pliers and cable should now be pulled apart. If up to here the process has been done correctly, the insulation should come off the electrical conductor. If it does not, they can try again after another turn lengthwise. If the resistance is now still too great, you should use a different setting of the adjusting screw.
With an automatic wire stripper, the adjustment to the diameter of the electrical conductor is automatic. The rest of the process differs only slightly from that of manually operated pliers.
In our range you will find fully automatic, manual and thermal strippers from well-known brands such as Knipex, Weidmüller or Wiha.
