Consistent Quality Terminations

Our applicators are designed to crimp a vast variety of terminals from TE and other manufacturers. Crafted from high grade tool steels and processed through advanced CNC equipment for tight tolerances, our applicators are made for high repeatability and fast throughput. We have also listened to customer input and market demands to innovate and improve the popular OCEAN applicator to be more robust, faster to install/adjust and even more accurate. Building on the knowledge and experience of more than a half century designing and manufacturing applicators and tooling—TE is taking terminal crimping to a new level with the new OCEAN 2.0 applicator.
