  • Patented crimp technique (DUAL Crimping)
  • For crimping of lexible Cu Terminals according to IEC60228, type class 5
  • Crimps Terminals type KRF and Through Connectors type KSF
  • For extra tough environments like cars and trains, where the connections beside normal electrical properties also must meet demands related to corrosion, mechanical strength and vibration
  • Meet the requirements in IEC/ EN 61238:1
  • Meet the requirements of corrosion according to DIN V 40046, part 37
  • Meet the requirements for vibration according to EN 50 155
  • Meet the requirements of mechanical strength according to SEN 24 50 10

Crimp Sequence: The crimp starts with an oprimized hexagonal Crimp and then makes a small indent in the same crimp cycle to further improve gas tightness as well as electrical and mechanical properties.

DUAL Crimping technology should be used in particularly severe conditions, such as in trucks, wind power plants and trains, where apart from their electrical properties, the joints are also exposed to corrosion, mechanical resistance and vibrations. Contact crimping takes place in a two-stage movement, first a hexagonal crimping that provides optimal symmetrical contact with the conductor. This means that none of the wires broke or came apart in the edge facing the terminal. This is followed by an additional indent crimp, which provides 30% better electrical properties.

General Information

System Elpress consists of terminals and tools, designed and tested together to give a certified crimping result. This ensures that users will feel confident when using our systems. It also ensures the achievement of a secure connection through the proper handling of our products.

Elpress hydraulic crimp systems crimp from 10 to 1200 mm². The systems consist of pumps and crimp heads that can be freely combined or with complete hand-held tools, where these devices are integrated. Wide range of accessories available for crimping, pre-rounding, cutting etc. Together with the matching terminals, they form  a complete system. Both pumps and hand-held tools have, with a few exceptions, quick feed function that means crimping can begin after a few pump strokes. The systems have a built-in ratchet lock that ensures the completion of the initial crimp and thus, produces results with the best characteristics. Pumps can connect to the different crimp heads providing the option of comfortable work in difficult situations and with maximum flexibility.
