Soldering Tools

Plato cutters give you the precision of a high-end tool, but at a disposable cutter price. Assemblers love the effortless shearing action, comfort, and safety for electronics lead and wire cutting. Plato cutters use the shear cutting method, which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life. The thin profile design is perfect for hard-to-reach areas in electronic assembly. Handles are cushioned for comfort all day and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.


Optional Safety Guard


175 and 175LX cutters come with a lead catcher, which holds onto a trimmed lead until the shear is opened. This prevents leads from flying off, which can lead to eye injury or contaminate the assembly.
