Technical Information - Gripping Pliers

Gripping – Holding – Bending: We offer the widest choice. In different lengths, with different handles, point sizes,
jaws straight or bent, insides smooth or serrated, our “schmitz” pliers are versatile assistants in electronic and
precision engineering. Please pay attention to the following criteria:

The Lengths
We distinguish between total- and jaw-length, both together with the individual task at hand, govern your
choice. Short pliers generally are easier to control and handle. Longer ones produce a greater leverage combined with a deeper reach which often is of great assistance. To ease your choice we are stating the totaland the jaw-lengths as well as the head-dimensions of each version.

The Jaws
Usually straight, but also bent in 2 versions: near the point or in the middle of the jaws, both with 45°. Bent jaws
are of great advantage in confined spaces. Of equal importance are the insides: smooth to protect wire surfaces
and components – or – with fine serrations to produce a safe grip.

The Points
3 standard shapes: “flat” – “round” – “half round / pointed”, available in different diameters and dimensions
with all pointed versions, but also with some flat-nosed versions. Fine points for delicate jobs, heavier points
for more leverage. For an easier choice all dimensions are shown against the individual models.
