Xuron Hand Tools Cut Filament Flat, Remove Supports
Edited by AM Staff
Xuron Model 450 Tweezer-Nose Pliers and Model 170-II Micro-Shear Flush Cutter for AM.
Xuron pairs two hand tools for fused filament fabrication-style 3D printers to cut the filament for feeding and for removing postprinting supports.
The Xuron Model 170-II Micro-Shear Flush Cutter produces a clean, square cut using shear action for trimming filament and cleaning up printed parts. It is ergonomically sized and shaped to fit comfortably in the hand, while its ultraslim profile increases access into high-density areas.
Xuron’s Model 450 Tweezer-Nose Pliers is an ultra-precise needle nose plier capable of grasping and holding wire less than 1 mm thick with the strength for wire forming. The tool is strong and durable with precison-tip alignment and radiused edges to protect wire.
Both tools are ergonomically designed, and have contoured, nonslip soft rubber grips and a light touch return spring. Made from alloyed steel and hardened for high reliability and long life, these tools have a glare-eliminating black finish.
