Test cables

How to check crimp terminals on cables:

A good crimping of a terminal on a cable increases the usable life time of the connection and avoids micro cuts when using the cable in a car or an aircraft.
When do you check wire terminal crimps ?
During the manufacturing cycle and at each change of processing settings, including:
- Checking the first batch manufactured
- Check for each new setup of machines or crimping pliers (tool exchange)
- Check each coil change (if terminals are supplied in a coil)
- Interim checks (every 1000 crimps for example)
- Check the final crimp

Carousel for tensile tests on terminals

Carousel for tensile tests on terminalsOur accessory carousel is designed for maintaining crimp terminals during quality tensile tests to determine the break force of crimps. It can be used with all types of crimp terminals (spade lugs, lugs round spades, spades flags) but also for crimp pins or crimp sleeves fitted to the beams and electrical harnesses. With its 15 slots with various openings, the operator may test the cable with a size between AWG24 to AWG14 without changing the holding accessory. .
