Press release date: February 16, 2010

Innovative crimp press lowers overall applied costs and protects investment in terminal and wire products

LISLE, Ill. - Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX AND MOLXA) announced availability of its new, industry-standard TM-4000(TM) Universal Crimp Press for bench-top crimping that provides 3.5 tons of crimp force to terminate large lug products up to 4 AWG.

The TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press provides an effective method of applying a wide range of side- and rear-feed terminals to heavy-gauge wires-ideal for automotive, industrial and commercial applications. Designed for mid-volume, semi-automatic bench-top operations, the TM-4000 press is an inexpensive, electrically controlled, direct-drive press.

According to Molex Product Manager Bob Grenke, "The press will allow our customers to reduce their applied costs-per part-as well as increase their quality through the use of a consistent bench top machine instead of a more manual operator dependent hand tool process. The TM-4000 is less expensive than other standard press offerings that only terminate up to 10 AWG."

The TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press accepts any Molex and most common industry-standard applicators in the marketplace, including air-feed applicators that process terminals mounted on Mylar* tape. This flexibility reduces tooling costs, providing greater production flexibility.

The TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press meets OSHA safety and noise requirements and is CE approved, which reduces risk of injury. Two attached safety interlock switches prevent it from cycling if the guard is open or when the press is being hand cycled.
