Flexible high force processing solutions

Processing large wire sizes and terminating high voltage wire connectors requires a high performing, highly-engineered solution. The TE high force lineup gives you the power needed to process large wire applications in a fast, flexible and affordable format. Our HV-CP machine takes the complexity and long preparation times out of high voltage cable processing, while our HF-20 and HV-20 bench-top pressing machines are capable of terminating cables up to 120mm2 (AWG 4/0). Plus, the TE modular die platform allows you to use a wide variety of unique die sets in holders that can be installed into either press.

Quality and Safe Solution for Large Wire Crimping

Our new SRC-M OCTACRIMP machine and die holder provides segmented radial crimp (SRC) technology for your large wire crimping needs. With the production of large wires at high volumes, high voltage harness manufacturing and e-mobility applications require a solution to enable accurate, consistent and higher quality crimps.


Quality Management 

  • Segmented radial crimp technology provides a radial application from all 8 sides of the wire
  • The crimp quality monitoring (CQM) feature enables persistent crimp quality for large wire termination
  • Machine can easily adapt to larger wire sizes and crimp up to 150mm²
  • Interchangeable die sets
  • Can be adapted for shield-crimping
  • A cable clamp accurately centers and secures the cable during the crimping process


Cost Savings 

  • Improved Crimp Quality with reduced risk of flash and crack vs. traditional crimping, no tensile-stress on the barrel during formation, no bending of pins after crimping reduces high cost of scrap and rework process time


Safety Handling 

  • Interlock guard shuts off machine when not closed confirming operator’s hands will not get stuck behind machine
  • Two-hand touch feature enables hazard free termination

HV-20V Vision System

Pre-crimp Component Quality Analysis for Successful Crimping

TE Connectivity’s (TE) robust, compact, high force benchtop machines capable of terminating cables in harness applications equipped with the new HV-20 vision system analyze the die set, terminal, and cable conditions even before started the crimp process. The HV-20V vision system contains a vision computer mounted on the HV-20 benchtop machine, an additional new monitor on the front of the machine, three cameras and a LED strip mounted inside the machine. The cameras capture images from multiple angles of the die set, terminal, and cable. The computer determines a pre- crimp of whether the components are in an acceptable condition for successful crimping. The images captured on the new display, allows the user to customize success criteria, and indicates the current pass/fail state of the different tests. The vision system includes five discrete tests to ensure quality before the crimp is performed. The vision system can be used for all types of terminals.


Less Scrap
  • The die vision system checks multiple points before the crimp to prevent incorrect or poorly positioned tooling, terminals, and cables
  • Minimizes dependence of operator’s skill
  • Drastically reduce risk of scrap, thus creates cost saving
Quality Management
  • The crimp quality monitor (CQM) detects errors during crimping
  • Can be integrated in customer’s manufacturing execution systems (MES) for data exchange
Consistent and Effective Results
  • Visual inspection allows the user to define tight windows of variability
  • Anything detected to be outside of these acceptable windows will inhibit crimping
  • The crimps that are allowed by the die vision system will have consistent diameter, cable position, and terminal position

HV-CP High Voltage Cable Processing Machine

Multi-Step Stripping

Take the complexity and long preparation times out of your high voltage cable processing with our new HV-CP machine, which can process 10 - 120mm2 (AWG 8 - 4/0) multi-layered conductors in as fast as 30 seconds! The HV-CP strips the outer jacket, foil shield, braid shield, and inner insulation to meet your termination specifications. To confirm proper preparation of the cable, the machine offers innovative quality control features:

  • Ability to confirm installation of the proper tooling before running
  • Self-calibration of blade positions after tooling changeover
  • Confirms cable position before and after the prep process to confirm proper strip lengths

For ease-of-use the HV-CP machine has an intuitive touch screen interface with a memory that accommodates up to 1,500 different profiles.
