VBW offers a range of wire-strippers. Starting with the classic wire-stripper right through to professional models with automatic gauge setting.

Basically, a wire-stripper is a tool that simplifies the stripping of insulation to expose the wire core. The aim of the tool is to remove the plastic or rubber insulating sheath in such a way that the wire core itself is not damaged.

The classic wire-stripper has a round or V-shaped cutter opening that does not fully close. The size of this opening can be set using the knurled knob and is then set to the gauge of the wire being stripped.

The automatic wire-strippers, on the other hand, adjust themselves to the outer diameter of the wire. Squeezing the handles then scores the sheathing and pulls it off in a single coordinated action.

VDE pliers & cutters: individually tested

VBW's VDE series provides users with the right pliers, cutters and wrenches for many applications.

Our emphasis here in situations involving difficult working conditions and hazardous tasks on live components is on uncompromising safety. Having the right tools, and safe tools, in these circumstances can be a matter of life and death.

All VBW's VDE pliers & cutters are governed by the strict stipulations of DIN EN/IEC 60900 – which our tools even exceed.

Each individual pair of these cutters or pliers is tested in a water tank in a special-purpose testing installation at 10,000 volts. The test procedure involves immersing the tool in water and only after it has been seen to pass the test is it released for shipping. But technical characteristics alone are not enough when it comes to producing the highest quality available for our customers. On the one hand, we finish our electrician's tools with non-slip, VDE-tested immersion-insulation on the handles.

On the other hand, we also equip our VDE tools with ergonomic handles with multi-component sleeves and ensure maximum comfort during the application. Of course, these tools are subject to the requirements of DIN EN/IEC 60900.
