C.K ArmourSlice ‘Strips Away The Hassle’

Published:  03 July, 2014

Carl Kammerling International has launched an innovative new Steel Wired Armoured (SWA) cable stripper, designed to speed up the process of SWA cable termination for installers.

Typically done utilising a hacksaw and trimming knife, the conventional method for stripping SWA cable is slow, cumbersome and can result in an uneven cut of the wire strands, and even possible damage to the inner conductors.

The new C.K ArmourSlice ‘strips away the hassle’ of preparing SWA cable for electricians, allowing the job to be done up to 50% faster, and ensures a perfect cut eveytime.

The wide cable clamp ensures perfect blade to cable alignment for precise cuts on cable from 12mm up to 36mm diameter. The automatic clamp applies constant pressure throughout the cut, completely removing the need to readjust and creating a uniform depth score around the armour strands.

Graham Godfrey, brand manager, C.K tools, commented: “The new C.K ArmourSlice is the latest in a long line of products that have been developed in collaboration with our panel of professional tradesmen. Working in partnership in this way ensures that C.K tools is able to deliver tool solutions that are best suited to the actual work undertaken by professional tradesmen. Fast, robust and precise, the new C.K ArmourSlice will not only save time, but also enable jobs to be completed to a higher standard than using traditional methods.”

In support of its trade customers, the C.K ArmourSlice is packaged in free standing euro-slotted blister packs and also a brand new counterbox, containing six products, allowing it to be displayed either hanging on fixtures or freestanding on countertops.

In addition, a brand new countermat has also been created, featuring an interactive QR code, allowing customers to link through to a product demonstration video via their smartphones in store.

Constructed from a rugged and robust metal alloy, and complete with a spare blade holder, the C.K ArmourSlice is priced at £34.99 (exVAT). Additional cutting blades are also available for £5.99 (exVAT).
