Product Description


Pressmaster Strip Tools

The process of wire stripping involves the insulation casing on a wire or cable being cut and removed to expose the conductive wires underneath. While there are many options for stripping available, the Pressmaster family of strip tools provides a precise and quick strip that allows cables and wires to be readied for crimping or other applications. In addition, they require much less time, manual strength, and expertise than other competing strip tools in order to operate. The precision cassettes and strip cuts allow you to consistently obtain the same strips repetitively, without a loss in quality or risk of damage to cables.

About Pressmaster

Pressmaster is deeply rooted in the heartland of Sweden – a country with a strong tradition of manufacturing some of the world’s best hand tools. The people of the region of Älvdalen have a long history of adapting to their environment by creating clever solutions. Pressmaster develops precision hand tools for markets where performance and reliability are vital. They work with tight tolerances and the highest quality all the way from CAD design through to manufacturing and assembly. The manufacturing process is regularly controlled by optical measuring equipment and supervised by highly skilled personnel. Pressmaster tools have extremely long life spans.

PVC Insulation

PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride. This substance, when mixed with plasticizers, is a flexible yet durable insulation and construction substance that is used instead of rubber in many applications. Depending on the composition of the PVC insulation, it can be either rigid or flexible. This type of insulation is best suited for medium to low voltage and low frequency insulation materials, as the dielectric loss and volume resistivity are high. It is also highly economical and chemically durable. This makes PVC the most common and practical wire and cable insulation material.

Embla Strip Tool Design

The Embla is a self-adjusting stripping and cutting tool for a wide variety of insulated wires and cables. This includes PVC and PTFE insulations, power wire, equipment wire, and communications cables. It is sold including a stripping and cutting cassette with a specific AWG range, and other sized cassettes and replacements cassettes may be purchased separately. The wide size range and quick auto adjustment of the Embla makes it extremely versatile and easy to use. The included thickness adjuster and wire cutter help improve the versatility of this tool, decreasing the amount of tools needed to be used for a single application. Tested to have a lifespan of over 150,000 cycles, the Embla will also decrease the amount of replacement blades and tools needed over time.

How To Strip Wire

To strip with the Embla tool, first adjust the tab on the blade cassette to match the length of the strip desired. Next slide the wire or cable into the tool from the front of the jaw. Next, completely close the handles of the strip tool and release. If the tool has made a wire strip that seems to be too thick or too thin, not removing all of the insulation or also removing some of the wire, then follow the instructions for adjusting the strip below. If the wire needs to be cut for any reason, you may simply place it into the blade notch below the strip jaw and pull the handle, as if stripping, and the blade will cut the desired wire.
