Wire Stripping

Wires and cables are utilized to carry current throughout electronic devices. To protect against short circuits and maintain the integrity of the wire, they are generally encapsulated in a protective insulation.

In manufacturing, the wire is typically cut to length, and then the coating/insulation is removed at the ends to provide the electrical contact. For heavier gauge wires, this sheathing can usually be removed using a mechanical process – even in automation. As the wire gauge becomes lighter, however, alternative stripping solutions need to be utilized.

Lasers have proven to be a successful technology to selectively remove the coating in the desired locations.
