The focus is on absolute safety for the user when working in the area of live parts. Wiha reacts to these requirements with a wide, user-oriented VDE assortment which is subjected to extremely demanding one-off testing and is VDE-certified. Here Wiha VDE tools meet all requirements for working in systems with up to 1,000 V alternating current (AC) or 1,500 V direct current (DC). In addition, all products bear the symbol of the double triangle and the corresponding assigned voltage. Among other things, the thickness of protective insulation is specified in accordance with the international IEC 60900:2004 standard.
This year Wiha can score with a total of five innovative VDE solutions. "As the only manufacturer in the sector, we offer a VDE assortment especially designed for electricians. “Development was carried out in close cooperation with users and well-known institutions such as the Fraunhofer IAO (Institut für Arbeitswirtschaft und Organisation) in Stuttgart,” explained Thomas Schlieter, Marketing Manager for Wiha Werkzeuge GmbH.
Innovative: the uniform pliers design
At the GET Nord, Wiha is presenting its new pliers generation which sets new standards in terms of design and functionality. The product line is impressive with its very attractive, modern pliers design which extends to all our pliers. With this one-of-a-kind, uniform design, Wiha has secured a clear unique selling point in the pliers market. Functionally, Wiha is introducing an innovation with real user benefits with the 'DynamicJoint’ pliers joint. “The new 40:60 joint geometry reveals cutting performance improved by up to 40 percent when compared to conventional pliers, with very low force of power,” explained Schlieter. For users, this means maximum cutting performance with a minimum expenditure of effort, even after 1,200 cuts. This has been confirmed by the TÜV Süd who inspected the DynamicJoint power joint in an independent benchmark test together with well-known competitors and hailed the product as the overall winner.
Pure ergonomics are also promised by the Wiha Inomic VDE pliers model, the recipient of several awards. Optimal accessibility, qualitative design and comfortable handling make the Wiha Inomic a dependable partner. The ergonomically angled form enables fatigue-free work and is also gentle on joints, tendons and muscles. Strong pliers jaws and the impact-resistant body make Wiha Inomic a tough and long-life tool.
