Crimper accessories are implemented in applications the require a large number of various terminals to be crimped. Crimper accessories allow one tool to handle just about any terminal out there. Perfect for crimp connectors or other types of electrical connectors. They are ideal for use in new installations as well as when replacing parts or performing maintenance. If you have damaged crimpers or broken crimpers then these accessories are perfect for you. Rather than buying several tools, all you will need is the proper tool frame. Regardless of the electrical wire connectors you are working with our accessories can handle them. Let us take a look at what types of crimper accessories are available.
Although we offer seven different crimper accessory die sets, they can be more easily separated into three categories. Those categories include coaxial/category (CAT) connector die sets, insulated terminal die sets, and non-insulated terminal die sets. As you can imagine, these categories cover a vast array of terminals and splices. This goes to show just how versatile crimper accessories can be when it comes to the sheer amount of terminals they can handle. Below we will go deeper into each of the three categories and look at the differences between all seven crimper accessories we offer.
What tool works with these crimper accessories?
Every crimper accessory we carry is designed to work with the Ideal crimp tool frame you see pictured here. Constructed from high-grade, stamp hardened steel and put together with steel pins that will not stretch with continued use, this is built with long-term, repeated use in mind. The ideal crimp tool frame is a full cycle, compound leverage, and triple ratcheted to give exact precision to every crimp. The crimper accessories can be quickly installed using only two Phillips head screws. You read that right, only two screws. The fact that you can change out the die sets so rapidly is just one of the reasons that this tool is so popular.
How do I select the correct crimper accessory?
In order to correctly select the crimper accessory best suited to your needs you first need to decide which type of wire connectors you will be dealing with. Knowing whether you will deal with insulated terminals, non-insulated terminals, or coaxial/category connectors will go a long way in helping identify which crimper accessory to use. Once you know the type of terminals you will be dealing with, the next step is to isolate the specific range of terminals by size or style. Say you need to work with 12-10 insulated terminals, then the best choice would be the VT30-579. Let us say you intend to handle RG-59 and RG-6 coaxial cable and connectors. In this case, the VT30-582 would be the one you are looking for. It basically boils down to a simple process of elimination. Once you have the crimper accessory that is right for your job, the next question is where can you use them?
Where would I use these crimper accessories?
Crimper accessories are useful in just about any application or environment that you are likely to find electrical connections. One of the reasons crimper accessories are so popular is the fact that they are perfect for field service. This is why you will find crimper accessories in garages, repair shops, marinas, production lines, and even industrial sites. The bottom line is that crimper accessories are useful anywhere you find electrical connections.
