Cable Jointing Tools By Ripley
Ripley US02 Max Semicon Shaver & Stripping Tool
|Ripley US02 Max Semicon Shaver & Stripping Tool quickly and easily removes bonded semi-con from MV & HV Power Cables up to 80mm diameter without the requirement for lubrication.
The semicon tool with a unique blade shape and stop position, this precision tool preserves the smooth surface on insulation and bevels off the edge, eliminating the need for additional surface finishing by the Jointer. The compact design accurately removes semi-con within 1.96′′ (50 mm) of the jacket on mid-span and end stripping applications.
|Ripley US02-7000 Semicon Shaver & Stripping Tool quickly and easily removes bonded semi-con from MV & HV power cables up to 800sqmm conductors without the requirement for lubrication.
The semicon removal tool has a unique blade shape which preserves the smooth surface on the XLPE insulation of medium voltage cables typically distributing electrical power at 11kV and 33kV voltages – the Ripley US02 tool eliminates the need for deburring or additional surface finishing of the cable insulation.

Ripley US15 Cable Sheath Jacket Stripping Tool
|Ripley US15 Cable Sheath Jacket Stripping Tool provides fast, safe, and precise cable sheath/jacket removal from both hard and soft insulated cables without damaging the underlying layers on LV MV HV (Low | Medium | High Voltage Cables).
The US15 tool from Ripley is a versatile medium duty slitting tool, used primarily to assist in the removal of outer sheathing and primary insulation on LV-MV industrial power cables. The cable stripping tool is equipped with a hardened steel blade, and is capable of performing slit, ring, and spiral cuts on cable diameters from 10 to 50mm.
|Ripley US15 PRO Cable Sheath Jacket Stripping Tool is capable of performing slit, ring, and spiral cuts on cable diameters from 10 to 60 mm. Equipped with a high-grade steel blade, the versatile tool provides fast, safe, and precise jacket removal from both hard and soft insulated cables without damaging the underlying layers. The US15 PRO has a micro adjustable blade depth to avoid underlying cable damage.
The Ripley US15 PRO tool is a heavier duty slitting tool primarily used to assist in the removal of outer sheathing and primary insulation on low and medium voltage power cables.

Ripley US01-7000 Adjustable Cable Stripping Tool
|Ripley US01-7000 Adjustable Cable Stripping Tool is used for mid-span and end stripping on both primary and secondary utility cables – the cable jacket/sheath stripping tool is compatible with URD, PE, PVC, copper tape shield, LC shield and flat strap cable jackets and XLPE, PE and EPR insulation.
The US01-7000 is the industry’s most reliable and accurate adjustable tool for mid-span and end stripping of cable sheath jackets – eliminating the need for traditional stripping knives. The cable stripping tool has end and midspan stripping capability, along with a unique clamping design.
Confined Space & Compact MV Switchgear | Here the MV Jointer, Steffan Evans from HVSM, is shown expertly stripping bonded semi-conductor screen from medium voltage power cables (20/22kV) prior to terminating the cable into Siemens NXAIR type Vacuum CB.
Stop | Start Feature – the unique and innovative design of the Ripley US02 tool ensures the jointer achieves accurate and controlled depth of the bonded type semiconductor screen cut prior to commencing the shaving and peeling operation down the medium voltage cable.
Compact Switchgear & Confined Spaces
Modern electrical equipment, such as Medium Voltage (MV) Switchgear, is increasingly compact in design and manufacture necessitating cable preparation tools to be usable where space is limited – here the Ripley US02 is shown close-quarter working on a 50kV substation project peeling bonded semicon layer from 630sqmm polymeric (XLPE) insulated single core cables being connected into air insulated electrical equipment using heat shrink terminations.
