Abstract

An existing pneumatically operated tool strips a wire of a portion of its insulation and wraps the unstripped portion of the wire about a shaft. The cutting head of such tool was designed to cut the insulation by action of cutting-stripping edges which close parallel to the axis of the wire. In so doing, the uninsulated portion or the stripped portion of the wire was bent over a shoulder on the cutting head so that the tension of such stripped portion against the shoulder during wrapping of the wire would tend to break the unprotected strip.

Wire Stripper

An existing pneumatically operated tool strips a wire of a portion of its insulation and wraps the unstripped portion of the wire about a shaft. The cutting head of such tool was designed to cut the insulation by action of cutting-stripping edges which close parallel to the axis of the wire.

In so doing, the uninsulated portion or the stripped portion of the wire was bent over a shoulder on the cutting head so that the tension of such stripped portion against the shoulder during wrapping of the wire would tend to break the unprotected strip.

In the stripper shown, the cutting head is closed over the stripping edges directly over the wire and perpendicular to it, and a flange bends the free end of the wire so that it runs parallel to the axis of rotation of the shaft around which the wire is wrapped. The flange also grips the uncut portion of the wire during wrapping so that tension is applied against an insulated portion of wire, lessening the chance of such wire breaking during wrapping.
