KNIPEX introduces new pipe cutters

An electrician’s daily grind often includes cutting through rigid steel conduit and stripping steel wire armoured cables. To save time and effort, KNIPEX has developed a range of cutters which includes its renowned TubiX pipe cutter.

Using just one hand, and effortlessly locking and adjusting to the perfect size thanks to the innovative QuickLock mechanism, the KNIPEX TubiX Pipe Cutter (90 31 02 BK) cuts pipes and conduit ranging from 6mm to 35mm in diameter, handling wall thicknesses of up to 2mm with ease. When it’s time for a new edge, the tool’s no-fuss design allows for instant wheel replacement, the company says. The spare is tucked neatly into the handle, and there’s no need for any tools to make the change.

The KNIPEX BiX (90 22 10 BK), meanwhile, is designed for plastic pipes. Fitting snugly in your palm and slicing through high-temperature plastic drainpipes and electrical conduits with ease, it has the ability to make cuts without leaving shavings.

Whether it’s unreinforced plastic pipes ranging from 20mm to 50mm with wall thicknesses up to 2.4mm, or soft plastic and foam-core pipes up to 3.5mm thick, the KNIPEX BiX handles it all with clean, sharp precision. Two spare blades are integrated right into the tool itself, and when it’s time to pack up, a secure locking mechanism guarantees safe transport.
