The concept of a single stripping tool with interchangeable blades and guides was developed in the late 1970's by the newly-formed Micro Electronics. Company engineers visited a NASA facility and saw a way to improve the stripping tools then in use. Problems were that precision needed improvement; a separate tool was required for each size of wire to be stripped; and the blade wasn't supported during the stripping operation. This led the company to invent and patent the highly precise Micro-Strip® stripping tool.
Vice President and General Manager, Gary Perrino, whose uncle invented the Micro-Strip® tool, joined the company in 1980, and has been responsible for many of the product's improvements in recent years. Contact us for more information about our products and services.
