Stripping tools are used to remove insulation layers and sheathing on electrical cables and wires. These tools are available in different designs as knives, clamps or special pliers. They can also be used to customise the different diameters of cables and wires. Some versions are equipped with a stop, which can set the correct length of the conductor section to be stripped. Through professional use of stripping tools, electrical conductors such as wires remain undamaged. Strippers are used in electrical installation work for connecting electrical wiring, for example.
