Crimping form is very important in the process of crimping terminals and connectors. But this is not the first step of this process. You must first choose the appropriate terminal or connector to the section, material and type of wires in the conduit. Once the terminal or connector is selected, you must determine the correct form of crimping.
What determines the choice of a crimping tools?
Proper form of crimping must be compatible with the selected terminal or connector. It should also be noted which tool the manufacturer recommends to crimp them with. It is also important setting in which entourage should the crimped element appear, eg. the device has only one round hole and we want to place our connector so we will not choose square crimping.
Types of crimping forms
A single indentation recommended for use with:
