In critical areas of aircraft and defense vehicles it is necessary to use strengthened wire and cable constructions. This might be due to high temperature requirements, or to be able to handle severe weather and moisture. These constructions include Kapton – a polyimide film and fiber glass braids. Both are very tough and difficult to cut with mechanical blades.
Fiber glass in particular is extremely difficult to cut without fraying and blunt blades very quickly. But our Mercury laser wire stripper cuts this with ease.
Examples of Kapton / TKT constructions, such as BMS13-58, Airbus CF wires and BMS 13-60 are also stripped with our Mercury laser wire stripper models with nick-free perfect strips every time.
