Crimping Tools

Page 2 Features • Operating air pressure of 85 to 150 psi. • Normally closed jaw design for safety. • Foot pedal controls. • Hands free operation. • Light weight tools and control box. Can be brought to a remote point or centralized work bench area. • Incorporates positive cycle system to assure reliably repeatable operations. Performing Operations with Bench Mounted Tools Bench mounted Model BCT-300 is actuated by a foot operated control box. The tool’s jaws are spring loaded normally closed for safety. Foot pressure on valve A (shown in the photo above) opens the jaws for loading of the part(s). Releasing valve A allows the jaws to spring close and hold the workpiece securely in place. Depressing valve B actuates the heart of the tool, a force-multiplying pneumatic cylinder that powers the cam operated jaw to the closed position accomplishing the operation, be it crimp, swage, cut, etc. The bench adapter bar or the tapped holes allow placement in vertical, upright or angled bench mount- ed positions. Making the Perfect Splice, Crimp or Assembly Every Time The circuitry in the foot operated control box includes a pressure sensing valve that can be adjusted for vari- ous closing jaw forces. The valve is extremely accu- rate and in essence delivers automatic quality control. Valve B Valve A OPERATING SEQUENCE 1. P RESS V ALVE A TO OPEN JAWS FOR PLACEMENT OF PARTS . 2. R ELEASE A TO CLOSE JAWS AND HOLD WORKPIECE SECURELY . 3. P RESS V ALVE B TO APPLY FULL CRIPMING FORCE . For example, if the supply pressure should fall below the sensing valve setting, the tool will stall in mid-stroke against the partially crimped work- piece. Once pressure is restored, the cycle will continue. The parts that had been in the jaws will be finished as a “good assembly”.
