When attaching electrical terminals to wire, the goal is to obtain the strongest mechanical connection with the highest electrical conductivity. Failure to achieve a quality crimp connection can result in expensive field failures or even injury.
Tooling wear is one of the most common causes for poor mechanical termination. It is costly both in terms of tool replacement and lesser quality crimps on the production floor. ETCO has addressed this issue with a revolutionary new coating that will extend tooling life and improve crimp quality.
This state of the art coating originated from ETCO’s progressive die technology. This coated tooling creates a crimping slide without friction, which in turn extends the life of the tooling by 140% and produces higher quality crimps.
