Large Gage Crimp Tools
DMC provides an extensive line of large gage crimp tools for high reliability wiring systems.
Many die configurations for crimping terminals and splices are required for OEM and maintenance operations. AWG size is one determining factor, but each die configuration has a designated tool series. The hand tool is the basis of each tool series and suitable for the low volume of prototype or repair work. For higher volume production and intermediate/depot maintenance, a tool series might include pneumatic tools, hydraulic tools, battery hydraulic tools, or electric hydraulic tools.
Large Gage Pneumatic Indent Crimp Tool (M22520/23)
The WA23 large pneumatic crimp tool functions with the push of a button for operator ease. This heavy duty crimp tool accommodates large size contacts 8 through 0000 (AWG) and operates on standard 90–125 psi (5.4–8.16 BAR) shop air sources.
The standard die assembly and locator are easily interchangeable with no special tool required. Custom dies and locators may be designed to specific requirements. An optional foot valve is available upon request.
DMC also offers a Hydraulic version HD23 and the Battery Powered version HDE23.
5.5 Ton Crimp Tool (M5259/5-01, M52594-01)
The HD51 Medium Duty Hydraulic Crimper is the most popular hand operated hydraulic crimper.
The HD51 is still lightweight at 4.6 pounds, but the 5.5 tons of die force and the larger die configuration extends the range of crimping capabilities to 2/0 AWG* conductors in many applications.
DMC also offers a Battery Powered version HDE51B and Remote Head XHD51
12 Ton Large Gage Hydraulic Crimp Tool (M5259/3-01*)
The HD120 is a hand actuated hydraulic crimp tool designed to use interchangeable MS23002-XX dies (for insulated lugs), MS90485-XX dies (for un-insulated lugs) and MS25442-XX dies (for aluminum lugs). It has a two stage hydraulic system with automatic pressure relief to prevent over compression, and automatic die retraction after the crimp cycle.
This tool is a hand operated hydraulic equivalent to DMC tool part number TBHD1M (MS25441-1) 12ton Hydraulic Installing Head. It accepts all dies designed for use in the TBHD1M.
DMC also offers a Battery Powered version HDE120B
*QPL in progress
12 Ton Large Gage Hydraulic Crimp Tool (AS5259/1)
The TBHD1M Remote Hydraulic Crimp Head (MS25441-1) exerts 12 tons of crimp force and extends the range of crimping capabilities to 4/0 AWG conductors in military/aerospace applications, and 750 MCM applications on commercial systems.
The recommended hydraulic pump is the HPU11M air over hydraulic powered pump and consult DMC for other hydraulic pump options.
Dieless 4-Indent Hydraulic Crimp Tool
The HC134 Dieless Four-Indent Hydraulic Crimper is a four-indent crimper that can self-adjust to the application. The tool provides a symmetrical four-sided crimp (at 90º intervals). The crimp pressure against the resistance of the metal conductor assembly will cause the tool to crimp to a depth where there is metal to metal bottoming (gas tight crimp joint on aluminum and soft copper).
The HC134 produces 7 tons. The range of crimping capabilities starts with small conductors (around 1⁄4 inch in diameter) to 4/0 AWG conductors on copper, and 750 MCM applications on aluminum.
Triangle indenter shape is standard. Optional indent designs are available.
