Title: ROTARY STRIPPING DEVICE
Abstract:
A rotary stripping device for a wire includes a support panel having a wire opening configured to receive an end of the wire and a wire stripper (110) mounted to the support panel. The wire stripper includes an actuating wheel (200) and a blade wheel (202) independently movable relative to the actuating wheel. The wheels have wire openings (216) aligned with the wire opening of the support panel to receive the wire. The wire stripper has a stripper blade (204) held by the blade wheel having a cutting edge configured to engage the wire. The wire stripper has an actuator (208) associated with the actuating wheel operably coupled to the stripper blade to move the stripper blade. The actuator causes the stripper blade to move as the actuating wheel is moved relative to the blade wheel to move the cutting edge of the stripper blade relative to the wire opening in the blade wheel.
