Abstract

Electrical current is used to remove shield 10 from coax cable 12. The section of cable 12 to be stripped is positioned over groove 14 in insulated block 16. Electrodes 18 and 20 are applied to the upper surface of shield 10. Current is passed between electrodes 18 and 20. Shield 10, being a copper tube, is burned away by the current passing through it. The sharpness of the resultant edge structure is a function of the heat sink characteristic of groove 14 in block 16.
