Ripley Honored by 2020 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards

Cromwell, Connecticut – Ripley Tools announces that the Miller® MB07 RocketRibbon™ 1728 Cable Slitter was recognized among the best in the industry by the 2020 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. The stellar third-party judging panel included cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators, and managers with vast professional experience.

Ripley Tools was recognized as a Silver honoree.

“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Ripley Tools on their Silver–level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the Industry.”

Ripley’s MB07 is an innovative cable slitter engineered with a precision factory-set blade depth that quickly and easily accesses fiber subunits and ripcords in Corning RocketRibbon™ 1728 cables. It efficiently performs ring and longitudinal cuts on cable mid-spans or ends without the need for blade adjustment. A single brass guide wheel reduces lag during longitudinal cutting operations. Additionally, its ergonomic handle provides greater leverage during ring cuts, and a convenient finger grip provides comfortable hand positioning during longitudinal cuts.
