For work in the motor vehicle area, in IT, on domestic electrical and electronic systems.
The 97 72 180 crimping pliers from Knipex are a solid and accurate tool that can be used wherever end sleeves (ferrules) with a fir tree profile are crimped: e.g. when car electronics are retrofitted, conversion work is conducted on IT in the server room or in domestic electrical systems, e.g. during the installation of lighting elements or entertainment electronics.
Custom-fit alignment of the crimp profile to the crimp volume.
To achieve a crimp result in line with the standard, the crimp profile
must be carefully matched to the material volume of the end sleeve (ferrule) plus wires. This means that here too it is essential to have the appropriate tool. Appropriate is also the key word when selecting the right crimp die. Nine crimp dies with a capacity range of between 0.25 and 16 mm2 are available in total. The fir tree profiles are clearly marked to prevent them being wrongly inserted. Thanks to the conical shape of the crimp profiles, the end sleeves (ferrules) are firmly held by the pliers.
Accurate and reliable crimping.
Manual force can be measured easily when crimping end sleeves (ferrules) with the 97 72 180 crimping pliers because the transmission of the pliers has been designed for powerful crimping with little manual force. There is no need to use a great deal of force. Once the correct crimp die has been selected, the end sleeve sits permanently and securely next to the conductor.
Crimping pliers from Knipex: good quality for maximum durability.
Crimping pliers for end sleeves (ferrules) from the Knipex range are impressive by virtue of their smooth operation and perfect transmission ratio. Crimping is easy.
Knipex crimping pliers are manufactured on modern machinery using special tool steel and are then oil-hardened. The safe use and great benefits of the tools are the results of decades of toolmaking experience, constant product development and the commitment by Knipex towards high quality standards.
