Our crimping tools have different functions: Depending on the tool, they can also strip or cut wires in addition to their main function. While connections used to be soldered, today they are usually crimped, because this process has shown to be much easier and has proven itself over the years.

 

How does crimping work?

The term "crimping" is a synonym of "pressing" or "folding". The word refers to the mechanical compression of a sleeve with a cable, which creates a firm connection between the conductor and the cable. The prerequisites are that the conductor, the contact, the crimping tool and its setting all match each other.

 

To connect a conductor and a connector to each other, they must be positioned in the appropriate crimping profile. For some crimp connections, there are positioning aids available, which simplify the insertion of the plug into the crimping tool.

During the process, it is important that the crimping pressure is applied evenly across the crimping profile. The best way to do this is to use a parallel crimping motion.
For the crimping pressure to be applied completely and accurately to the contact, the tools are equipped with an integral lock.
