Consistent, High Quality Terminations
Premium CERTI-CRIMP hand tools crimp a broad array of terminals, contacts and special wiring devices from TE. Designed to exacting specifications for consistent, high-quality terminations, a potential service life of over 50,000 cycles is possible, depending on operator care. There are currently seven basic styles of CERTI-CRIMP hand tools to select from—the choice depends on the product being applied.
This video informs that the portable tools are categorized into three levels: Premium, Commercial and Service. The higher the grade of the tool, the less operator skill is required to repeatedly meet the specified parameters of the crimp.
CERTI-CRIMP Tooling Options
Choose From 7 Basic CERTI-CRIMP Designs
There are currently seven basic styles of CERTI-CRIMP hand tools. The choice depends on the product being applied and/or your preferred method of application. For example, open barrel contacts typically require straight-action die movement to minimize possible rotation during crimping. Or, if your application requires crimping different sizes of terminals, you may prefer using a single tool with a combination of crimping nests rather than two or three separate tools.
Other options include insulation crimp adjustment for different insulation thicknesses; a locator for properly positioning and supporting the terminal or contact in the tool; a wire stop; and color-coding and/or wire size information on the head of the tool or handles.
