Knipex launches TwistCut tool to enhance safety in the workplace

Leading plier manufacturer, Knipex, has launched its new TwistCut tool for use on corrugated pipes, with enhanced safety in the workplace in mind.

The TwistCut corrugated pipe cutter makes it safe, quick and easy to cut pipes with diameters of 13-32mm to the correct length with its ergonomic shape and small size making the tool more safe to use. The tool also has recessed blades so users cannot slice their fingers.

The TwistCut tool is easy to use, with the user simply having to squeeze the two half shells with slight pressure and turn. The double-sided guide means it is easy to make an exact flush cut without damaging any internal cables.

With model 90 22 02 SB, users also have the ability to strip wire. Location ridges allow cables to be quickly and correctly inserted and the easy-to-read length scale means all cables can be evenly stripped to a consistent length, whether the user is right or left-handed.

The tool comes with a fastener with locking device and internal spring device so it’s lightweight and easy to handle and open when needed, and simple to quickly store away when you don’t.

Founded in 1882 and based in Wuppertal, Germany, Knipex is one of the world’s leading brand manufacturers of pliers.

Last year, Knipex earned an innovation award nomination ahead of the 2018 International Hardware Fair (Eisenwarenmesse) at Cologne, where 12 nominees were picked out from 59 entries, which came from 48 different companies.
