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.
