Abstract : This patent discloses an apparatus for stripping insulation from electrical cables which has two opposing clamp assemblies, a front assemble which is fixed to a housing box and a movable rear clamp assemble which slides on guide rods. The rear clamp assemble is biased against the front clamp assembly to maintain both clamp assemblies in the open position. A cable in which the insulation is scored is inserted into the opposing clamp assemblies with the scored section being disposed between the two clamp assemblies. A pneumatic motor operates through a pulley and rope system to pull the rear movable clamp assembly away from the front clamp assembly allowing the clamps to close on the wire to be stripped. The insulation is stripped as the rear clamp assembly is pulled away from the front pulley while the wire is held by the front pulley assembly. (R.H.)
