TSK8000 Twist-Strip™


The Fastest High Precision Twisted Multi-Conductor Cable Stripper

It's time to put away the razor blades...

The TSK8000 Twist-Strip™ tool makes light work of multi-conductor, shielded, twisted cable prep.


Problems with Traditional Cable Prep Methods

The challenge in designing a wire prep system of this type is the non-circular configuration of the cable, and the many types, variations, and stripping nuances of shielded, twisted, multi-wire cable.

Imprecise methods. Stripping multi-conductor wire calbe is often done by hand with a razor blade. This is a difficult way to remove the jacket from any type of electrical cable. A razor blade offers no method of controlling the depth of cut which result in a poor quality strip, and damage to the shielding.

Risk of injury. Using a razor blade increases the probability of injury to the operator and constant tugging to remove the outer jacket which cuases operator fatigue. Other methods for removal of the jacket like laser or thermal stripping produce hazardous work environments.

Time consuming. The conventional "ring and slit" method for stripping shielded twisted cable is very time consuming and requires a highly skilled operator to succesfully do.

Introducing the TSK8000 Twist-Strip™ Cable Stripper

The patented TSK8000 Twist-Strip™ tool utilizes custom-made die sets and precise adjustable
cutting blades.

The adjustable blades allow the tool to compensate for minor thickness variances in the cable jacket and lay length with significantly less downtime.

An engineered cabletrack in the dies is contoured to match the outer jacket profile of the cable being stripped. This feature provides controlled rotation of the dies to guide the cutting blades in a precise track along the length of the cable.

Safe, accurate and repeatable, the TSK8000 Twist-Strip™ makes quick work of avionics harnesses and many other cable types, cutting preparation time by up to 3 to 5+ times.

The TSK8000 Twist-Strip™ eliminates the need for imprecise and dangerous razor blades. The TSK8000 die sets can accommodate an outer diameter range of cables from .0625" to .187".
