PNEUMATIC CRIMP TOOLS
The DMC Power Crimp Tools WA27F, WA22P
and WA22 are direct equivalents of their corresponding hand tools. They
use the same turret heads or positioners, the gages and other
accessories. As production needs grow, all that needs to be added is the
tool frame itself. The resulting power capability can in many instances
compare with an automated system costing thousands of dollars more.
These pneumatic tools are widely used in both military and proprietary
programs. Their popularity has come about in part because of their
unequalled reputation for trouble-free, dependable service and their
cost saving and adaptability.
Whether upper, middle or lower range, the power tools fulfill the same
precise crimp requirements as the hand models. They use the same
indenter configuration, the same gauging dimensions and selector
settings. No additional operator training is necessary. Accurate
calibration is maintained by a unique 8 step machined steel block that
holds gauging tolerances far longer than the usual adjustment screw
method. This solid gauging means high output with less downtime.
The compact size and light weight of these tools allows them to be used
easily as hand tools, as well as high production bench tools. The hand
trigger is designed for equal ease of use by right or left handed
operators. Bench mounted, the optional foot valve allows hands-free
The Bench mount will allow the tool to be secured at
virtually any angle for individual comfort, thereby minimizing operator
The foot valve, when installed in-line with an air supply, makes a table
to any work bench. Air supply requirements are 80-120 PSI (5.5 to 8.0
atmospheres); filter and lubricator are recommended. The system uses
standard air fittings readily available in most shops.
