  • Excelta Lazer Line 9200 Series Cutters

    When choosing a hand tool you should consider…

    The Shape of the cutting head will determine the expected life you get from a cutter. A round head cutter will outlast a tapered or tapered relieved head cutter of the same size. The more material behind the cutting edge, the longer the life of the tool.

    The “Type of Cut” refers to the outside angle of the cutting blades. A semi-flush cutter will produce more cuts than a maximum flush cutter, and a maximum flush cutter will produce more cuts than an optimum flush cutter. Be sure to choose the type of cut to suit your cutting needs.

    The Size of the tool should correctly fit the hand of the person using it. Excelta manufactures tools in many head styles and handle lengths.

    The Grip on a hand tool should fit comfortably in your hand. You can choose from our soft foam cushion grips or molded grips, both ergonomically designed and ESD Safe.

    Kimco Distributing is offering 5 Star Cutters on Sale at a special price along with a free tweezer just for trying out these unique cutters. These cutters combine the use of Lazor technilogy with the most advanced CNC machining to produce the finest grade premium cutter available. The cutting blades are induction hardened to 64 - 65 RHC for durability and precision hard-milled for sharpness to produce state of the art tools.

    The 9200E Series all feature a 5" overall length and are ESD-Safe.

  • Clearly Mark Your Components With High Temperature Brady PTL 10-426 Labels

    One of the most important aspects of assembling electrical components is the labeling of each part and each circuit. To do this there must be labels that can handle the temperatures they will be subject to. The Brady PTL 10-426 labels are exactly what you need for quality control and better devices.

    Not many people realize that there is a lot of heat that is generated when an electrical device is being operated. The longer that the circuits are transferring information, or transistors are working, the heat continues to build. In a computer, the fans are used to help dissipate this heat. However, the insides are still quite warm. Regular labels that are used on different components can easily fade away, or discolor, rendering them useless.

    The Brady PTL 10-426 are High Temperature Polyimide labels that can be used in many different applications. They are used for Circuit Board ID, Component ID, and several other similar type of applications. As such, they are subject to high temperatures. Because of the polymide construction they easily transfer the heat so that they do not yellow, fade, or look burnt. You can read the printing on these letters for many years after they have been afixed.

    These high temperature labels are .750" x .250" in dimension and come in a 750 label roll. They are used with the Brady TSL2200 labeling system. You can find both of these products at the Kimco.com online catalog. Both are available at a special price and are shipped same day as purchase. While at the site you can also look at several other Brady products as well as accessories and tools for electrical and industrial use.

  • Easily Label Wires With Brady PYL 17-426 Labels

    When assembling a circuit board, or organizing a mile of cable wire, it is important to keep labels neat, organized, and easy to read. It is also important that they be rated for the extreme temperatures that can be found within electrical devices, coils, steel booms, and other high temperature applications. With the use of Brady PYL 17-246 labels you can now enjoy clear information for years to come without discoloration.

    One of the irritating facets of circuit board, or electrical component labels, is that after they have heated up, and cooled off, much of the printing that tells part number and other important information is worn off, discolored, or otherwise not able to be read. Thermal transfer labels by being able to ward off the temperatures and remain bright and crisp for easy reading of instructions, part numbers and other viable information.

    For use with the Brady TLS2200 labeling system, the PYL 17-246 labels are that essential item that can make assembly of circuits, repair of electrical parts, and organization of cable a breeze. This line of thermal labels can be manually or automatically applied at extreme temperatures, thereby eliminating the requirement to identify goods after cooling.

    Most extensively used for printed circuit board use, these labels resist lead-free direct wave solder, reflow processing and cleaning solutions. They are 1.000" W x 0.500" H (25.40 mm W x 12.70 mm H) and come in rolls of 500 labels.

    Check out the catalog at Kimco.com for more information about these Brady labels. You will find that they are competitively priced and are available for immediately delivery.

  • Keep Consumers Safe with Brady Sl-13 Static Awareness Labels

    Safety in the workplace, and for consumers, is something that no company can take for granted. It doesn't matter if the business is run out of a basement for part time income, or a large corporation with millions in profits, when it comes to electronics you can not be too safe. The Brady SL-13 Awareness Labels can help keep consumers, and repairmen, aware of static electricity and shock and are a vital component to many electrical devices today.

    Electrostatic discharge, or ESD, is a very common occurrence within electrical devices that carry circuit boards, and micro chips. They reason is that they build up a lot of charge within the component itself that can be discharged through contact with tools or other items. Labeling a device with a Brady SL-13 awareness label will let the person handling the device about the possibility of ESD.

    With this warning, repairmen, assemblers, and hobbyists can then use ESD safe tools and handling materials when coming into contact with this type of component. The Brady SL-13 labels conform to Military Standard 129J and EIA (Electronics Industries Association) Standard 471. They are 0.500" x 0.500" (12.70 mm x 12.70 mm) in dimension and come to 54 labels to a card.
