Title
(EN) HOOKBILL WIRE CUTTER
(FR) COUPE-FIL A BEC
Abstract
(EN)
A hookbill wire cutter (60) specially designed to cut wire mesh components features a pair of opposing handles (62, 64) connected to a pair of jaws (70, 72). Each jaw (70, 72) features an arcuate blade (80, 110) having a flat cutting portion (82, 112) and a tapered portion (84, 114). The jaws (70, 72) are pivotally joined to open and close when the handles (62, 64) are actuated so that the blade cutting portions (82, 112) overlap in a scissor-like fashion. One (80) of the arcuate blades features a notched tip (92) that engages a wire member perpendicular to the wire member to be cut. As a result, the wire cutter (60) may be quickly and easily positioned. The arcuate blades (80, 110) are dimensioned to substantially surround a wire member so that the wire member is sheared flush when the jaws (70, 72) of the wire cutter (60) are closed. As a result, generally smooth and flat cut wire ends are produced.
(FR)
Selon cette invention, un coupe-fil à bec (60) spécialement conçu pour couper des composants de grille métallique comprend une paire de poignées opposées (62, 64) reliée à une paire de mâchoires (70, 72). Chaque mâchoire (70, 72) comprend une lame arquée (80, 110) possédant une partie de coupe plate (82, 112) et une partie effilée (84, 114). Les mâchoires (70, 72) sont reliées par pivot de manière à s'ouvrir et à se refermer lorsque l'on actionne les poignées (62, 64), de façon que les parties de coupe des lames (82, 112) se croisent à la manière des ciseaux. Une des lames arquées (80) comporte une extrémité à encoche (92) qui met en prise un élément de fil perpendiculairement à l'élément de fil à couper. Cela permet de positionner le coupe-fil (60) rapidement et aisément. Les dimensions des lames arquées (80, 110) sont choisies de manière à ce que celles-ci entourent sensiblement un élément de fil pour qu'il soit cisaillé lorsque les mâchoires (70, 72) du coupe-fil (60) se referment, grâce à quoi l'on obtient des extrémités de fil coupé lisses et plates.
