Aerospace & Defense

Today’s aerospace cables are almost entirely stripped using mechanical means. The vast number of terminations, the reasonably large wire diameters and mature precision tools mean that more sophisticated laser wire stripping tools are seldom needed. There are a couple of notable exceptions:

  • Jackets of twisted shielded multiconductors 
  • High temperature wires with multi-layer insulations including kapton and fibre-glass such as BMS1358 
Laser Wire Solutions’ Mercury range of laser wire strippers are tailored for the stripping of aerospace cables and wires
