If you want durable crimp connections, you can't afford to make mistakes. For a real quality crimp, you need craftsmanship, coordinated tools, and matching wire-end ferrules. There are also international standards and regulations that set out criteria for a perfect crimp connection. These include DIN EN 60352-2, which also describes the advantages of crimping, how to achieve the necessary tensile strength, and how to avoid typical mistakes. Want to know more? We have compiled the most important information on crimping in our whitepaper.

Do's and don'ts in crimping

There are many things you can do wrong when crimping. It starts with the cutting of the conductor. A clean, right-angled, and above all crush-free cut is the best basis for the crimping process. Then remove a piece of the conductor insulation – without damaging the conductor. How much insulation to remove depends on the terminal or contact used. After stripping the insulation, a suitable contact or wire-end ferrule can be crimped onto the end of the cable.

Super individual: PZ 6 ROTO ADJ

Simply efficient and comfortable crimping

PZ 6 ROTO ADJ with rotating die and handle width adjustment

Not much time for crimping and not much space in the control cabinet? To ensure you achieve the best crimping results even under such conditions, we have now added a world first to our PZ 6 ROTO crimping tool family. The new PZ 6 ROTO ADJ is the first crimping tool with a rotating die and adjustable handle width. It reliably crimps wire-end ferrules with a cross-section of 0.14 to 6 mm² and can be optimally adapted to your individual preferences. If the cross-section range is limited to 2.5 mm², this reduces the grip width by 20 %. In this setting, around 90 % of all crimping operations can be carried out efficiently and ergonomically.

  • Adjustable handle width for optimum ergonomics and fatigue-free work
  • Rotatable crimp die for adaptation to a wide range of installation situations
  • Highest crimping quality you can rely on for the long term
