TE Connectivity Premium Grade TETRA-CRIMP Hand Crimping Tool Frame

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

TE Premium Grade TETRA-CRIMP Hand Crimping Tool Frame - Overview

From TE Connectivity, a premium grade hand operated crimping tool designed to high specifications using high-quality materials for producing top quality consistent crimps with optimal electrical and mechanical performance. The premium grade tools are easy to use and require minimum operator skill to produce high quality crimps to specified parameters. The crimping tool consists of handles with an upper jaw platform and a lower jaw platform between which secure the die assembly. The crimp tool also includes a CERTI-CRIMP tool ratchet and a locator which helps to position the contact in the tool. The handles of the crimp tool are set to specific pressures to meet different crimp force requirements. The whole design of this premium handing crimping tool ensures that a complete crimp cycle is achieved regardless of operator fatigue or tool wear and tear.

CERTI-CRIMP Ratchet

The CERTI-CRIMP ratchet feature is factory set to stay locked until the handles of the tool are fully closed and the dies are bottomed. This prevents partial crimps by ensuring that a full crimping cycle is achieved. The CERTI-CRIMP ratchet also enables the operator to repeatedly produce consistent, high-quality crimps.

Emergency Release

This TETRA-CRIMP crimp tool features an emergency ratchet release which is used by the operator to release the ratchet if a terminal has not been positioned correctly

Key Features and Benefits

• High specification design using high-quality material
• Minimum operator skill required
• CERTI-CRIMP ratchet mechanism guarantees full crimp cycle
• Locator for accurate positioning of the contact
• Ergonomically designed handles with pre-set handle force pressures
• Emergency ratchet release

Applications

This TE Connectivity premium Grade crimping tool is ideal for use in low production runs, prototype work and repairs and any other application that requires consistent, high-quality terminations. This CERTI-CRIMP premium grade hand crimp tool is also suitable for use in most military, UL and CSA applications
