How do you maintain the product?

  • Axles and other movable parts should be regularly lubricated.

  • Adjustment of the crimping die nests should also be checked. Readjustment of the pressure adjustment axle is necessary when the pre-load of the tool decreases significantly.

The Importance of a High-Quality Crimp

When a crimping tool is used on a terminal, two crimps take place at the same time. One is the electrical connection between the conductor and the terminal. The other is the insulation crimp which provides strain relief against vibration and tension. It is important that the electrical connection is without any voids between the wire strands and the terminal. If there are any voids present, then corrosion can occur causing resistance and excessive heat which damages the electrical connection. Using a good quality crimping tool will ensure that a full crimp is produced preventing future deterioration of the electrical connection and insulation breakage.
