Prerequisites for top quality center stripping
Good quality center stripping depends mainly on factors such as wire size, insulation thickness and stripping length. Dimensional accuracy is particularly important with thin-walled wires. If the wire is not dimensionally true, the insulation may not be fully removed or the strands may become damaged.
Insulation thickness and hardness are also crucial factors in the quality of insulation removal in center stripping. Stripping is easier and neater with thicker, harder types of insulation, as it does not yield while being cut.
