Understand What Makes an Optimal Crimp

High Quality Crimps Every Single Time

  • Utilizing proven crimping tools and machines
  • Recognizing a bad or malformed crimp easily
  • High Quality Crimp without the Errors
  • Creating the Settings and Developing Consistent Quality


In the wire termination manufacturing industry it is easy to get lost with the various terms. But one of the most important aspects of termination applications is achieving an optimal crimp. An improperly crimped wire can lead to power loss, product performance issues and in worse case scenarios hazardous conditions.

ETCO creates products that perform under the most rigorous testing conditions. The diagram also demonstrates the importance in terms of safety and quality of providing a connection that starts out right in the custom manufacturing process. Appliance, medical device and automotive manufacturers that use wires with badly crimped terminal connections are more likely to have product issues having to do with safety, returns and product performance than properly crimped wire terminal connections.



Optimal Crimp Matters

An optimal crimp means customer satisfaction
