There are three blade options, which determine the shape left on a lead after cutting.

Semi-flush
This cut leaves a pyramidal tip at the end of the wire. It is particularly suitable for standard jobs where the final shape does not play a significant role. Cutters with this cut are suitable for both soft copper wires and very hard wires such as stainless steel.

Flush
This cut leaves a much smaller tip at the end of the wire than the semi-flush cut – without reducing the cutting capacity. The cutting edges are finer than on semi-flush cutters. The effort exerted when cutting is less and the load on the component is reduced. Flush wire ends reduce the effort needed to fit components on printed circuit boards. Erem guarantees precise cutting even after frequent use.

Super full flush
Only Erem offers you a super full flush cut. This cut provides absolutely flush wire ends. No rework is needed. Cutters with this cut are absolutely precision-ground and sharpened. The effort exerted when cutting is low, as is the load on the component caused by the cut. Soldering tags in soldering-bath procedures are prevented. Cutters of this type are used in microelectronics, space travel or medical technology. These cutters are suitable for soft wires.
