Technical Data Sheet

Platoshear Cutter


The Plato 170 Platoshear Cutter offers precise, reliable cutting action at an economical price. Thin profile handle and lightweight design are ideal for smaller hands.  Plato shears have a thin profile designed for those hard to reach areas in electronic assembly.   Assemblers love the effortless shearing action, comfort, lightweight and safety for electronics lead and wire cutting.  PPlatoshears use the shear cutting method, which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life because they shear rather than pinch.  Handles are cushioned for day-long comfort and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
