The world of cables and wires has become very diverse in recent years. There are not only differences in size (cross-section in mm²) or diameter (ø), but also between round and flat cables. In addition, there are many different insulation materials that differ greatly in their characteristic. Whether video, data, control and sensor cables, or Ölflex® and Cat lines and many more: More and more cables and wires have to be prepared for connection, whether in industry or in handicraft. You need the right tool for this.
A good cable stripping tool is a must-have in the DIY, handicraft and industrial sectors. With this special tool, work processes in cable processing are executed quickly and safely. For stripping all kinds of cables, which nowadays are usually installed invisibly in or behind the wall (flush-mounted), a cable stripper ensures effortless work thanks to its slim, tube-like shape in these places that are difficult to access. A special dismantling tool convinces with its simple application, comfortable handling and precise stripping results.
Working with a JOKARI cable stripper is very simple. We at JOKARI call this the "JOKARI cable stripping principle":
On some models, a longitudinal cut can be made with the help of an additional blade. To do this, simply insert the cable into the guide, close the tool slightly and pull past the cable lengthwise. By doing so longer sections can also be stripped without any problems, as the cable can be pulled through the inside of the tool.
A cable stripper consists of two plastic shells that are joined together with a small screw, spring, or mounting clip. Depending on the application and the type of cable to be processed, one or more pairs of blades are arranged in the tools. This has to do with the condition and structure of the respective cable, e. g. thickness of the sheath or insulation material.
If you are about to buy a stripper, you should take a good look at the product. There are clear differences in terms of quality, durability and handling among the stripping tools available on the market.
The following criteria indicate a product that can be bought with a clear conscience:
The JOKARI range offers different models of cable stripping tools for a wide variety of cable and line types, but also for various areas of application.
In addition to the well-known Universal cable stripper SECURA No. 15, which is mainly used as a standard cable stripper in domestic installations, users can also discover special cable strippers for data cables, such as the No. 1-Cat. The JOKARI XL makes working in deep wall outlets comfortable due to its long shape. The Allrounder can be used multifunctionally. It is suitable for stripping flat cables (up to 15mm wide) and round cables (4-15mm ø), as well as for flexible conductors (1.5-50mm2) and individual strands with 1.5mm2 or 2.5mm2. All JOKARI cable stripping machines are suitable for both left- and right-handed users.
A Cable knife is an electrician's traditional, conventional tool for strip a long length of cable insulation lengthwise for convenient access to the inner conductors.
Cable strippers are ideal for working in deeper levels like in wall outlets. There is usually limited space available to remove the outer cable insulation. A cable knife can sometimes not be used due to the lack of space. Many cable strippers also have a function for safely stripping the individual wires. Their working range starts at 0.8mm2 – the smallest working range of cable knives is 4mm ø.
The maximum cable diameter that cable strippers can used for is 15mm ø. For larger cables (up to 70mm ø) cable knives are more likely to be used.
Wire strippers with their shape of a pistol are perfect for automatically processing the inner conductors in order to connect a lamp or socket, for example.
All you have to do is insert the inner conductor into the pliers and press them. The insulation is automatically stripped by the blade mechanism.
