Q. Our company needs to process flexible and semi rigid coax cables and cannot justify a large capital expenditure for the equipment. Who makes high quality, accurate, and reliable tools at reasonable prices? Back to Top
Q. Can we run the FLRST bench Top Driver (BTD) on different voltages? Back to Top
Q. Will all of your tools fit into the BTD? Back to Top
Q. How easily can the RPM on the BTD be changed to match the cutting speed for various cable constructions? Back to Top
Q. How fast can the multiple step cable stripper make all the strips? Back to Top
Q. How long a strip can you make with the stripping tool? Back to Top
Q. How short can a cable be and still be stripped and pointed? Back to Top
Q. Do I need a tool for each specific semi rigid cable diameter? Back to Top
Q. How many strips can I get from a standard blade? Back to Top
Q. Are special strip tools available for cable of different sizes and construction? Back to Top
A. Yes. We make special tools for many applications. "Specials" are almost standard here at FLRST.
Q. Can I bend semi rigid cable first and then strip and point it? Back to Top
Q. How close together can the legs of a U-bent cable be and still be stripped and pointed? Back to Top
Q. Can I point the solid wire conductor of any size cable? Back to Top
A. Yes. The upper limit is center conductor diameter of 0.120 inch (3mm) for the FLRST Universal and Standard pointer heads. The Universal and Standard pointer heads will accept semi rigid cable with an outside diameter of up to 0.250 inch (6.4mm). The difference between the 2 heads is that the Universal head will point a center conductor to the length it is cut. The Standard head points the center conductor to the desired length even if the center conductor was cut to a length longer than is ultimately desired.
Q. Does the precision automatic cable saw leave a burr on the cable? Back to Top
A. Yes, however the residual burr does not interfere with further cable processing or connector termination.
Q. Does the FLRST bender allow the bend radius to be changed during the bending process? Back to Top
Q. I want to develop new cable configurations and then go into large scale production with these configurations. Can your bender accommodate that? Back to Top
A. Yes. Our bender can make very precise prototype cables while at the same time laying out a bending template for large scale production. This allows large scale production with identical configurations from the first cable to the last. The bender even allows you to adjust for "spring back" for each lot of cable bent.
Q. How do I cut semi rigid cable to length with an inexpensive hand tool without destroying the end? Back to Top
Q. Is there a semi rigid cable hand trimmer that will cut the dielectric and do a 2 step strip? Back to Top
A. Yes. Our Semi Rigid Cable Hand Stripper will do all of that. First, you score the jacket and pull it off. You then re-insert the cable and trim the dielectric flush or to any step required.
Q. I need special fixtures to help in making cable assemblies. Can you provide these? Back to Top
Q. We have a lot of hex crimp dies for hand tools. Can we use them in your Pneumatic Crimper? Back to Top
A. Yes. Our Pneumatic Crimper is designed to accept standard MIL 2250 and DMC dies.
Q. Sometimes we have a need to open a crimp tool before it is fully closed. Can your Pneumatic Crimper do this? Back to Top
