A compact, bench-top crimping press for attaching continuous strip or loose piece terminals and blades in work cells or independent workstations is available from the company. The company's crimping press is a 2.5-ton electric unit that accepts all varieties of left- or right-feed applicators, including mini dies (with adaptor plate) for attaching continuous-strip or loose-piece terminals and blades. Featuring a direct-drive design and a gear motor that reportedly eliminate mechanical clutches that can wear and cause failures, the press provides forward jog capability, an electric stroke counter, and emergency shut-off. According to the company, the press is foot-operated, easily converts into automated operations, and has a sturdy steel frame to minimize press deflection for reliable and consistent crimps. Standard features include an open architecture for access to the applicators, quiet operation, safety guards, and 110/220-V models.
