Abstract

Fig. 1 shows apparatus for cutting an insulated wire 2 in such a way that the insulation 3 extends past the end of the wire for electrical insulation. Fig. 2 shows four stages in the sequence of the operation. A tweezer 4 grasps the insulated wire near the end of the insulation 3. While the wire 2 is held stationary, the tweezer pulls the insulation 3 away from the point where the cut is to be made.

Wire Tip Insulator

Fig. 1 shows apparatus for cutting an insulated wire 2 in such a way that the insulation 3 extends past the end of the wire for electrical insulation. Fig. 2 shows four stages in the sequence of the operation. A tweezer 4 grasps the insulated wire near the end of the insulation 3. While the wire 2 is held stationary, the tweezer pulls the insulation 3 away from the point where the cut is to be made.

A cutting blade 5 is then lowered to cut the wire 2 and the portion of the insulation to the left of the tweezers 4. Cutter 5 is raised and tweezers 4 are moved to the left to pull the insulation 3 over the cut end of the wire.

In Fig. 1, a support 6 holds a locator 7, and support 6 can be lowered to hold the wire 2. The tweezers 4 are pivotally mounted on support 6 at a point 8. An air cylinder 9 operates to open and close the tweezers 4, and an air cylinder 10 pivots the tweezers about point 8. An air cylinder 12 raises and lowers the cutter
5.
