Buffer tube shaver to aid cable preparation
Ripley Tools has revealed its MSAT-X tool to, designed to offer engineers more flexibility for cable preparation.
The MSAT-X buffer tube shaver is part of the Miller range and has been designed and manufactured to offer engineers improved flexibility of use. The midspan tool can be used across a range of cable types up to 5mm in diameter, removing the need for multiple tools. The loading ramp enables all cable sizes to be loaded precisely into the same cutting blade, so there’s no need for the use of a sizing gauge.
To help engineers get the job done more efficiently, everything about the MSAT-X has been considered for ease of use. Its versatile deep and shallow cutting channels are colour coded for easy identification and its ergonomic shape and light weight design means it’s simple to work with.
It has undergone extensive prototyping, testing and development in-house at Ripley Labs, which included engineer trials. The tool guarantees durability and reliability, so users can be reassured they can get the job in hand done. The MSAT-X was designed and built at Ripley Labs in the USA. It is available from Ripley’s partners around the world.
