Product Blitz Xuron

Wire Cutter

The Xuron Model 2193 Hard Wire Cutter features full blade bypass cutting which causes the wire to break, rather than being squeezed and deformed as happens with standard cutters.  Leaving flat ends on both sides of the cut wire, the by-pass cutting combined with a high-leverage cutting head minimizes the hand pressure. The Model 2193 Hard Wire Cutter is made of alloyed steel and heat treated, with hardened cutting edges to Rc 60-62. This ergonomic cutter has a glare-eliminating black finish, cushioned Xuro-Rubber hand grips and a return spring.  It is rated for cutting hard wire up to 0.040 in. dia.

Locking Cylinder

The 70 series Mini Hydraulic Preloading and Locking Cylinder is part of the PFA Inc.’s KOR-LOKSide-Action System product line. The cylinder features 8,000 lb of preload force in a new narrow format, allowing multiple small cores to nest together and time independently.  Smaller ports and low-profile sensors ensure a large competitive advantage to standard compact hydraulic cylinders. Smaller ports and low-profile sensors ensure a large competitive advantage to standard hydraulics and other compact hydraulic cylinders. Unique zero psi locking supports green technologies that save energy by dropping hydraulic pressure during injection, eliminating the need for always-on independent hydraulic core pull pumps and providing further energy savings.
