Powerful Crimping Tools Handle Heavy-Gauge Connectors

HARRISBURG, Pa., July 29, 2003 - Tyco Electronics, a business segment of Tyco International Ltd., recently introduced a new line of hydraulic crimp tooling. The new line consists of those components necessary to crimp a wide range of connectors from 8AWG up to 4/0. The tools can be powered by a 10,000-psi electric pump or a manually actuated (hand or foot operated) pump and are connected to a control unit and crimp head. The electronic control unit can be hand or foot operated. Four crimp heads are available: 12 ton (1" stroke), 14 ton (1.5"), 12 ton titanium (1") and the SOLISTRAND terminal compression head.

The 1", 1.5" and SOLISTRAND connector crimping tools are also available in a hand tool version.

The hydraulic crimp tooling uses a U-die design and accommodates several popular terminal styles including SOLISTRAND and STRATO-THERM connectors, TERMINYL and PLASTI-GRIP connectors, AMPLI-BOND connectors and AMPOWER connectors. Additionally, the flexible design of the tool allows custom dies to be made for other connector styles.

These new tools are suitable for low to medium volume production and can be used for prototype work. Wire harness shops, aerospace/defense contractors, railway equipment manufacturers and other manufacturers who use large gauge terminals and connectors are candidates for this line of tooling.
