Xuron Wire Cutter Is For People With Hand Health Issues

Saco, ME (Marketwire) - Xuron Corp. is introducing an ergonomic wire cutter which features a bent handle that is designed to fit more comfortably in a user's hand, comes in left- and right-hand versions, and reportedly requires less squeezing effort, making it helpful for people with hand health issues.

The Xuron 8500 BioShear™ Flush Cutter employs bypass cutting which produces a clean, square cut by using shear action, with only about half the effort required by conventional compression-type wire cutters. Designed with ergonomically bent handles, covered with non-slip soft Xuro-Rubber™ grips, this ergonomic wire cutter is available in left- and right-hand versions.

Ideal for arthritis sufferers and aging workers who cut wires, the Xuron 8500 BioShear™ Flush Cutter's design helps keep the user's knuckles in a straighter line to maintain optimum comfort while cutting. Well suited for cutting soft wire up to 18 AWG (1.0 mm) and plastics, applications for this wire cutter include electronics assembly, hobbies, and crafts.

The Xuron 8500 BioShear™ Flush Cutter sells for $17.25 (list). A complete catalog of cutters and pliers is available upon request.
