- Special quality chrome vanadium electric steel, oil-hardened
Extremely user-friendly: precision requiring little time and effort
Intuitively achieve professional crimping results
The crimping of connectors must be learned in order to create connections that are mechanically and electrically safe and secure. By contrast, no prior knowledge is needed when using the Knipex 97 52 04 crimping pliers, which give the user a tool that intuitively enables him to do everything right. Non-insulated blade terminal connectors with open cable entry are crimped to the conductors reliably in the precision-machined crimp profiles.
The integral lock ensures that the pliers only open once the optimal crimping pressure set in the factory has been reached. The crimping pressure can be adjusted; the integral lock can be released where necessary.
30 % less effort required – the leverage principle is used twice
Up to 30 % less effort required compared to conventional crimping pliers – how is that possible? The answer is physics. The handles on the Knipex 97 52 04 are shaped to produce a long lever arm. Special leverage is also integrated in the crimping pliers, so that even a low level of manual force gets to the connector in a carefully measured way. The user can produce stable connections from conductors and crimp connectors with little time and effort.
This is how it is done: three hand movements to produce a professional crimp connection
A non-insulated blade terminal connector with open cable entry is inserted. This is very easy, quick and accurate using the Knipex 97 49 94 locator which can be ordered as an accessory. The lower handle is pulled up using two fingers, until both jaws are resting on the plug connector to be crimped, thereby fixing it in the crimp profile. If one hand is insufficient, you can work with both hands as the handles are long enough for two-handed operation. This enables large cross-sections to be crimped safely and conveniently. All of these qualities are made to last, because the pliers are manufactured from high-grade chrome vanadium electric steel – according to Knipex quality criteria.
