CRIMP TOOLS DMC Pneumatic tools are often mounted on a Bench Mount, and some find it inconvenient to set or check the setting of the crimp depth selector when the tool is mounted for benchtop use. DMC resolved this issue by creating a version of the tool which moves the crimp depth selector to the side of the tool in a “looking up” position. These tools have the same crimp depth settings as the original tools, but with the knob in a more convenient position: Adding “SS” to the part number of the WA Series Pneumatic Crimp Tools will apply to the Side-Select versions. A retrofit kit is also available for converting standard tools to Side Select tools.

Most shops perform “GO/NO-GO” inspection on crimp tools after a specific period of time. But the usage of crimp tools in production or maintenance operations is inconsistent, and during a given period of time, a tool can be used to terminate thousands of wires, or less than a hundred, maybe none at all. Ideally, tools should be gaged based on actual usage and not a period of time. In order to assist with this, DMC has designed a series of tools which are fitted with ruggedized Digital Cycle Counters that allow users to manage the tool through the inspection cycle based on the number of crimp cycles (actual usage) rather than an arbitrary time period. This greatly increases the number of crimp tools in production by decreasing the number of crimp tools awaiting gaging and balances the use of each tool between inspection events. Each time the handles are closed, whether crimping a contact or just cycling the tool, the cycle is counted. Gage inspection is accomplished with common “GO/NO-GO” gage and the tool is returned to production.
