ERKO company is a manufacturer of various types of cable terminals and connectors and crimping tools, e.g.. manual hand presses, hydraulic, pneumatic for electrical work: tools for crimping connectors, tools for cutting holes in sheet metal (eg. Switchgears, control cabinets), cable cutting tools, tools for processing and assembly of busbars.
The use of mechanical hand presses and pneumatic tools is recommended for crimping small sections cable connectors.Using hydraulic tools like hydraulic -headsfor crimping terminals and connectors with larger cable cross-sections.
Hydraulic tools allow termination or connection of the cables for diameters from 6 to 625 mm2. For this group of tools ERKO company offers a wide range of crimping tools, as well as inserts for endless termination of sector cables. Hydraulic heads forming the group among other, are the following heads: GZ300, GO300 and a series of GU heads. To supply the hydraulic head with the power the Producer proposes: AH500 and AH550- using one or three-phase motors. To supply the power for the heads with less intensive work H800 foot pump is recommended.
The hydraulic tools that need particular attention are designed on the basis of the latching head: GZ300, HRZ300, PRZ300, EPZ300 and EPZC300. The use of the latch for the closing of the head facilitates the establishment of the crimping die and crimping the connector on the wire. Unification of the ERKO crimping dies with the tools available on the market enabled to apply their heads on the market of similar structure crimping dies. It is also possible to use ERKO heads for the other manufacturers crimping tools. Crimping dies available for the tools are available for tubular terminals Al. and Cu, cable end-sleeves, ring terminals. Electrical crimping press EPZC stands out for its snap pivoting head turning at an angle of 360 ° and an extremely powerful lithium – ion battery. It has an automatic cycle end switch after a proper crimping is done and is equipped with LED signal showing when normal or abnormal crimping. A big help is the electronic registration of the duty cycle and automatic pressure control.
