Types of Crimping Tools

Crimping is often used to affix a connector to the end of a cable. Wire crimpers look like a pair of pliers, but join two pieces of metal or other ductile materials (such as wire to a metal plate) together. A crimper deforms one or both of the pieces, which holds them together. Some crimpers are ratcheted, meaning the pieces you are working with will not be released until a threshold pressure is delivered. Ratcheted crimpers sometimes come with interchangeable dies that allow you to crimp connectors of varying widths. When looking for a crimper, be sure to verify the types of wire or cable it is capable of crimping.

How to Extend the Life of Your Wiring

You can increase your wiring’s lifespan by doing these three things:

  1. Examine expected performance in its environment. Choose the most suitable cable/wire for your application
  2. Avoid damages. Reduce cable failure with wire loom, sleeving and heat shrink products
  3. Proper maintenance and care. Inspect, maintain, and remove any cut or damaged cables/wires before they lead to unsafe conditions
