Weidmuller 's assortment of ESD pliers: safe, precise tools for working on sensitive electronics, with special materials used in the handles, to avoid electrostatic charges.
The danger for electronics from electrostatic discharges (ESD) should not be underestimated. The transfer or discharge of electrostatic charges can cause considerable damage.
As well as an electrostatic-free work place, specially designed tools are necessary when working with electrostatic-discharge sensitive devices and components.
Weidmuller's assortment of ESD pliers has been designed accordingly:
The materials used for the handle grips of the ESD pliers contain special additives that exhibit low conductance properties and safely discharge accumulating electrostatic charges.
Due to their compact dimensions, ESD electronics pliers are particularly suitable for working on electronics components. A spring mechanism for opening the pliers allows delicately skilful as well as single-handed and fast working practises.
They are suitable for use in small- and medium-batch series production work, as well as for testing and repairing tasks.
The handles of Weidmuller's ESD pliers have two-component plastic grips. The stable core of the handles is combined with a wide, soft and slip-resistant gripping surface.
The ergonomic design of the handles ensures that working is essentially fatigue-free. The pliers themselves have a highly polished steel surface.
Tried and tested, their microscopically fine steel surface is distinguished by a safe, environmentally friendly finish.
All of Weidmuller's ESD diagonal cutters are designed to meet the highest cutting demands. The assortment covers a wide range of applications.
Included in the range are: Electronic ESD diagonal cutters with oval head, Electronic ESD diagonal cutters with tapered head and Electronic ESD oblique cutters.
