Stripping and cutting tools


stripax® ULtimate and ULtimate XL

For stripping wires with tough insulation

The stripax® ULtimate was produced in response to an increasing demand for a quick and precise hand tool to strip wires with tough insulation, like those specified for use in transportation where low smoke halogen-free wires are required, or in wind turbines where Teflon insulation withstands temperatures from -40°F to 293°F. Other industries with specifications for UL type wires include oil and gas processing, machinery and robotics, and all those where ATEX standards apply.

  • V-Shaped Blades
  • Easy to Operate
  • Preps Wires for Ferrule Crimping


stripax® stripping tools are your guarantee for a consistent stripping result in accordance with the DIN standard. Thanks to the self-adjusting stripping blade, the stripax® automatically adjusts to the respective cross-section of the conductor.


  •  Stripping and cutting: PVC-insulated stranded wire conductors from 0.08 to 10 mm² (∼AWG 28 to 7)
  •  Processing of multiple conductors, and in thin ribbon cables, even several conductors in a single step
  •  No damaging of the conductor due to special, self-adjusting stripping blade

  • Ratchet for precise crimping
  • Release option in the event of incorrect operation
  • Only one die/crimp station for the entire cross-section range
