TE Connectivity CERTI-LOK Hand Crimping Tool Frame Assembly

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 conductor and terminal. The other is the insulation crimp which provides strain relief against vibration and tension. It is important that the electrical connection is gas tight without any voids between the wire strands and the terminal. If there 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, gas tight crimp is produced preventing future deterioration of the electrical connection and insulation breakage

CERTI-LOK Hand Crimping Tool - Overview

This CERTI-LOK hand crimping tool features an adjustable ratchet which the operator is responsible for setting. The adjustment is made using an adjustment wheel which controls the crimping height of the insulation or wire barrel of the terminal. Adjustments are necessary when the ratchet or other parts of the tool have been subject to wear and tear. The ratchet stays locked until the handles of the tool are fully closed and the dies are bottomed. This feature prevents partial crimps by ensuring that a full crimping cycle is achieved and enables the operator to repeatedly produce consistent, high-quality crimps.
The ratchet release allows the operator to open the handles of the crimp tool at any point during the crimping cycle when necessary
