The Plato 175 PlatoShear Cutter with Safety Guard has a permanently attached safety guard that reduces the risk of lead fly-off and prevents eye injury.
Assemblers love the effortless shearing action, comfort, and safety of Plato 175 shears. Plato shears use the shear cutting method, which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life. Plato 175 shears have a thin-profile design for hard-to-reach areas in electronic assembly. Handles are cushioned for day-long comfort and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
