For work in the motor vehicle area, in IT, on domestic electrical and electronic systems
The 97 71 180 crimping pliers from Knipex are a solid and accurate tool that can be used wherever end sleeves (ferrules) with a fir tree profile are crimped: e.g. when car electronics are retrofitted, conversion work is conducted on IT in the server room or in domestic electrical systems, e.g. during the installation of lighting elements or entertainment electronics.
Custom-fit alignment of the crimp profile to the crimp volume
To achieve a crimp result in line with the standard, the crimp profile must be carefully matched to the material volume of the end sleeve (ferrule) plus wires. This means that here too it is essential to have the appropriate tool. Appropriate is also the key word when selecting the right crimp die. Nine crimp dies with a capacity range of between 0.25 and 16 mm² are available in total. The fir tree profiles are clearly marked to prevent them being wrongly inserted. Thanks to the conical shape of the crimp profiles, the end sleeves (ferrules) are firmly held by the pliers.
Accurate and reliable crimping
Manual force can be measured easily when crimping end sleeves (ferrules) with the 97 71 180 crimping pliers because the transmission of the pliers has been designed for powerful crimping with little manual force. There is no need to use a great deal of force. Once the correct crimp die has been selected, the end sleeve sits permanently and securely on the conductor.
