Pressmaster Crimpers

Pressmaster is deeply rooted in the heartland of Sweden – a country with a strong tradition of manufacturing some of the world’s best hand tools. The people of the region of Älvdalen have a long history of adapting to their environment by creating clever solutions. Pressmaster develops precision hand tools for markets where performance and reliability are vital. They work with tight tolerances and the highest quality all the way from CAD design through to manufacturing and assembly. The manufacturing process is regularly controlled by optical measuring equipment and supervised by highly skilled personnel. Pressmaster tools have extremely long life spans.

Professional Crimping Tools

The process of crimping involves a connector and a wire being deformed in a way that makes them hold together. While there are many options for crimping available, the Pressmaster family of crimp tools provides a tight and solid crimp that allows cables and connectors to be held together while not damaging the functionality of either. In addition, they require much less time, manual strength, and expertise than other competing crimp tools in order to operate. The precision dies and crimp profiles allow you to consistently obtain the same crimps repetitively, without a loss in quality or risk of damage to cables.

How To Crimp

The process of crimping a cable and appropriate connector together is easy and quick when using Pressmaster Crimp tools. First, insert the desired cable into an appropriate connector. Next, insert both into the crimp tool. Grasp the open handles of the crimp tool firmly and press down completely. There is no need to worry about over crimping as long as you are using the correct crimp tool. Lastly, once the tool's handles are closed completely, the latch on the crimp tool will release, automatically opening the handles and the crimp end. If the crimp tool ever seems to be stuck, make sure you are pressing together and closing the tool completely. This ensures a consistent and correct crimp every time.

How To Adjust the Crimp

You may need to eventually adjust the variances of the crimp tool, either because the tool has exceeded it's normal life span and is beginning to lose precision, or in case the tool is damaged. This should not happen too often, as Pressmaster tools are designed to work for over 50,000 crimp cycles and built to withstand abrasion and impacts. To do this, open the handles of the crimp tool and unscrew the screw and cover plate of the circular adjustment in the center of the bottom handle. Once the plastic cover and screw are removed, you may use a screw driver to pop the adjustment wheel up, and then turn it counter clockwise to tighten. When you have finished adjusting, push the adjustment wheel back down and screw the cover plate and screw back into place.

Coax Connectors

Coax cables and connectors are among some of the most widely used cable connection systems, transferring various types of data among professional and residential cable lines. They are most commonly connected to TVs and cable modems in homes, offices, and industrial locations. Coax cables are available in several different constructions, with the same use but of different materials and quality. Coax connectors are also found with many different configurations, to fit your specific requirements, budget, and needs. For industrial and professional cable set up installations or simply for home cable maintenance, the DCC-0908 Crimp tool will help you in your coaxial crimping needs.

Compatible Wire Types

The DCC-2124 provides a Hex crimp with dimensions of .150" (3.80mm), .268" (6.80mm), .047" (1.20mm), and .028" (0.70mm). These crimp sizes and styles are designed to crimp your Coax connectors properly to ST212 and ST214 cables. The Hex style crimp provides the most complete and recommended crimp for these type of cables and connector combinations.

D-Frame Original Design

The D-Frame of this tool is similar to the C-Frame engineered by Pressmaster. The D-Frame however includes some modifications to the classic original design to be more user friendly. The tool is lighter and has a small handle span, making it easier to use for end-user with smaller hands, and combined with the angled crimp jaw, also makes it easier to use in unsual or uncomofrtable situations and positions, reducing wrist strain. Being an ambidextrous tool, it can be customized for both right and left hand users. The full cycle crimp mechanism and ratchet release mechanism ensure consistent and reliable crimps every time. The tool also has a precision eccentric adjustment for calibration to ensure consistent performance.
