Stainless Steel Cutting Tweezers

Cutting tweezers were originally developed in Switzerland for cutting hairsprings in watch mechanisms.  Today, cutting tweezers are used to cut wire, soft plastic and many other materials commonly found in our industry.  Cutting tweezers are typically made of high carbon steel content to ensure strong cutting blades, but Carbon Steel has poor corrosion resistance. Excelta addressed the issue several years ago and introduced cutting tweezers with black ESD safe epoxy coating.  As our customer base has become more and more bio-medical, we have been asked for 15A-GW style cutting tweezers made from Stainless in order to prevent rust and corrosion without a coating. 


Excelta is now proud to present our 15A-GW-S and 15A-RW-S made entirely from Stainless Steel. This steel is not as hard as carbon steel because it contains alloys which resist rust and can withstand temperatures of 400 degrees C, and cannot be autoclaved.
