It is common for the high-speed data cable to utilize two or more shielded twisted conductors. This type of cable is common in all digital electronic networks, and it requires new tooling disciplines. The challenge in designing a wire prep system of this type is the cable's non-circular configuration, the many types, variations, and stripping nuances of shielded, twisted, multi-wire cable.
The DMC Twist-Strip™ product line gives the user a system with maximum capabilities while keeping the system portable, self-contained, affordable, and ergonomic. The precise blade adjustment, zero friction ball bearing design, articulating/locking arms, and changeable dies make the Twist-Strip™ very user-friendly and efficient when performing the difficult cable preparation task.
The TSK8000 and TSK8500 have 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.View in action
