Premium Crimper Tools

Premium wire crimper tools include the appropriate crimp die configuration, integral locating, and integral straightening features that permit terminals or contacts crimped in these tools to meet all feature requirements in applicable TEC application (114-) specifications. Most premium crimp tools include an adjustable insulation crimp height feature and the CERTI-CRIMP ratcheting feature, set at the factory, which prevents the ratchet from releasing until the wire crimp jaws bottom within .001. This helps provide consistent repeatability of the crimp. Premium crimp tools require the least amount of user dexterity. 

Commercial Crimper Tools

Commercial die assemblies are designed to meet the wire crimp height requirements per the applicable TEC application (114-) specifications. Other feature requirements may or may not be met. Commercial handle assemblies permit the interchange of die assemblies and an adjustable ratcheting feature. Users are responsible for adjusting the ratchet to obtain the correct crimp height. Commercial wire crimper tools require a greater amount of user dexterity than premium crimp tools.
