Nitronic was founded in the Swiss town of Nidau in 1977. For the first 10 years, Nitronic had developed and manufactured electronic instruments for nuclear research and the medicinal industry. Nitronic entered into the cable processing industry in 1984 with the cooperation of Stepan Engineering.. This resulted in the worlds first coaxial cable stripping machine CO207. Further models followed and set a new standard in cable processing.
- Coaxial cables: CO207, CO257, CO8015, HC207, MP257, MP8015
- Microcoaxial cables: MC252
- Semi-rigid cables: SR1000
- Fibre optic cables FO7045, FS7030, FS7035
These products were distributed exclusively by Schleuniger Switzerland.
In 2005 Nitronic released its high precision stripping tool the MiniStrip, which was the first to be distributed by Nitronic’s own distribution network. It was followed by the ST215 and ST215W wire stripping machines as well as the redesigned ST730 & ST730T coaxial cable stripping machines. Today Nitronic has a worldwide sales- and service network.
An important addition to the business was made in 2004, with the launch of the portable hardness tester HRC3070. The innovative construction and measuring principle allowed Nitronic to build a tester in the shape of a pen at a reasonable price. This is the most compact hardness tester on the market!
In 2008, Nitronic was converted to a non-stock corporation Nitronic AG. Furthermore, Nitronic moved to its new location at the Mattenstrasse.

The cable Stripping and Twisting machine ST215 and ST215W (with wayback) was specially developed for small wires and cables. It features an innovative four-blade system, which provides very accurate and exact repeatable stripping results.
The coating is removed by cutting with rotating blades and strip-off in one single step. This innovative procedure allows processing of
- Coax/Microcoax cables
- Teflon or Kapton coated cables
- Sucoform SM86 cables from Huber & Suhner
Furthermore, wires are twisted during the stripping process. The high precision avoids damage to wires or dielectric. In addition, a centering unit allows very high precision stripping for high-end applications. The centering unit is infinitely adjustable and assures that the cable is centered respectively to the cutting blades. User influences regarding the stripping quality are eliminated.
Precision blade diameter control with a micrometer scale, allows a quick set-up of diameter. The locking screw of the diameter adjusting system makes the machine available even for military and aerospace applications. The quick length control is equipped with a sensor which initiates the stripping process. The high quality of the product guaranties a precise repetitiveness.
The all new ST215W features two additional functions.
– The rotation of the stripping head can be stopped prior to pull-off. This allows to twist or not the strands.
– The second new function is the adjustable Wayback. This function will open the blades a little prior to pull-off. This increases the stripping quality, especially when the wires have important diameter tolerances.
Nitronic MiniStrip –Cable Stripping Tool
The cable stripping tool Nitronic MiniStrip was specially developed for thin wires and cables. It features a four-blade system, which provides exact repeatable results for stripping wires and cables.
The coating is removed by rotating blades and stripped-off in one single step, depending on stripping length and cable, the wires are also twisted. This innovative design allows for processing fiber optic cables as well as coaxial cables and Teflon coated cables. The high precision design prevents damage to wires or fibers.
Precision blade diameter is controlled with a micrometer, which allows for a quick set-up of diameters. The locking screw of the diameter adjusting system makes the tool available even for military applications (mil-spec). The high quality construction of the ministrip guarantees a precise repetitiveness.
