Important Notes:

  • The “starting depth” for blade adjustment produces a very light score on cable jacket. Operator should adjust cutting depth to preferred depth setting.
  • 3 conductor die sets have a non-concentric shape. Therefore, 3 conductor die sets come with only 1 blade. The blade is in the “B” side die. This will produce a single cut longitudinally on the cable.
  • Tool allows for .001” incremental adjustments to blade cutting depth.
  • Cutting blade depth adjustments are critical for correct performance. Cutting too deep into the cable will damage it beyond repair. Small incremental adjustments reduce potential damage.
  • Cable diameter and the # of inner conductors is critical to tool performance. Die sets should be matched to proper cable diameter and # of inner conductors using the chart above.
  • In some circumstances, a larger die cavity may be needed to accommodate wire that is at the maximum OD for the measured cable part number.
  • Universal dies above are designed for cable with a left twist. Dies designed for cable with a right twist have an “R” in the part number: TSRXXXX.
  • Soft insulation may cause the cable to jam or stick during the stripping operation. Certain applications may not be suited for this tool.
  • Certain applications may need a custom die set. If die sets above are not suitable, call DMC at (407) 855-6161 for assistance.

The TS8000-CIC Cable Diameter Gauge Card should be utilized to select a die set.

The max OD and part number of the appropriate die set are shown next to each opening. Find the smallest opening in the gauge card that the cable freely passes through without getting snagged or stuck. Select the corresponding die set to strip the selected cable.

NOTE: If the cable passes through the opening in the gauge card, but scrapes the sides of the ID of the opening or gets stuck, the user should select the next larger diameter die set.

Custom Kits and Projects

DMC works to provide the most comprehensive solutions for high speed data and shielded,
twisted, multi-conductor cable preparation.

  • TSK8000: Twist Strip Kit* with TSK8000 Only
  • TSK8002: Twist Strip Kit* with TSK8000 w/All (10) 2 Conductor Die Sets (Cable diameter range from 0.081” to 0.180”)
  • TSK8003: Twist Strip Kit* with TSK8000 w/All (10) 3 Conductor Die Sets (Cable diameter range from 0.081” to 0.180”)
  • TSK8023: Twist Strip Kit* with TSK8000 w/All (20) 2 & 3 Conductor Die Sets (Cable diameter range from 0.081” to 0.180”)

    *Includes case, TS8000 CIC Cable Diameter Gauge Card, and accessories; in an organized, foam-lined insert.

For certain applications, a custom die set may be required. DMC requests that a 10ft sample of the User’s Cable be sent to DMC, and a project will be opened to evaluate and advise, or to design a new die set for the User’s cable application. DMC will determine if a standard die set can be used. If there is not a standard die set, DMC will create a new die set for the particular application. DMC will also test standard and custom die sets with the cable that was supplied by the Twist-Strip User to ensure functionality. Please call DMC at (407) 855-6161 or email dmc@dmctools.com for more information.
