Recently, a good Tronex customer and world famous contract manufacturer had a problem…..
The manufacturer wanted to remove a few connector pins from the middle row of
pins in a multi-pin array. The pins were large (.020″ in diameter) and closely spaced (pitch of 0.10″).
Tronex engineering thought that the Model 5074 would work.
This unique cutting tool has very fine cutting edges operating at 90 degrees to the plan of the handles. The edges are at the end of ultra thin jaws.
Would the model 5074 fit between the pins? To be on the safe side, Tronex made two slightly smaller variations, models 5074A and 5074B, to fit into the pin array with increased clearance. As it turned out, the standard model 5074 worked perfectly!
