TE Connectivity Premium Grade CERTI-CRIMP Hand Crimping Tool for PIDG and PLASTI-GRIP Terminals

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 CERTI-CRIMP Hand Crimping Tool - 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 a CERTI-CRIMP tool ratchet, two fixed crimping dies or crimpers, two movable crimping dies or anvils 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 II ratchet 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.

Insulation Adjustment Pins

The insulation crimping section of the tool is adjustable so it can accommodate different wire insulation diameters. This adjustment is made by inserting an adjustment pin into one of 3 positions in the head of the tool.

Handle Colour and Dot Code

The handles of the crimping tool are colour coded to match the terminal size the tool is designed to crimp. When the correct terminal has been selected and fully crimped, the crimping tool produces a dot code (a single dot) on it as confirmation

Key Features and Benefits

• High specification design using high-quality material
• Minimum operator skill required
• CERTI-CRIMP ratchet mechanism guarantees full crimp cycle
