The Ergonomic Grip
The Tronex 7000 features, as standard, a unique double-sheathed, ESD safe, cushioned grip. The inner sheath is a tough vinyl, ESD safe material which holds the leaf spring and the cushioned surface to the cutter handle. The outer sheath, also ESD safe, provides a no-slip, cushioned surface for the operator’s hand. This is important because the slight compressibility of the cushion aids to distribute the cutting pressure more effectively. It can even absorb sharp particles which could be imbedded in the hand. The Tronex 7000 cushion grip is almost always considered by operators to be more comfortable than the hard, plastic used by competitors.
The Safety Tip Protector
All Tronex cutters are supplied with a unique plastic protector for the tip of the cutter. It is easy to use, yet very effective. The protector “puts the tool safely to bed” when the tool is not being used. It prevents chipping of the tip from accidental dropping and can prevent the exceptionally sharp edges from injuring an operator. Some day all cutting tools will have some sort of tip protection. Tronex is leading the way.
