Quality — Made in Germany

For the highest demands on quality

Industrial production is characterized by a high level of efficiency. Every work step in assembly and production has to be right to avoid downtimes or make then as short as possible.


Pliers have a very simple and challenging task in industrial production: They have to be a real support to the worker in order to achieve maximum productivity.   


Flat-nose pliers, which are suitable for various assembly works, can save valuable time in everyday work that would otherwise be lost due to tool changes.

Cutting pliers such as cable cutters are only a valuable help if they still easily cut after intensive use.


One thing is clear: As different as the material to be processed is, the construction of the pliers used must be specialized too.  


Wire cutters are designed for working on hard and tough wires for a clean cut every time.  Professional tools are designed to work on the daily stresses and strains in the industrial sector.
