Crimper Dies

Crimper Dies

This is the head of the FTZ lug crimper. As you can see it compresses the lug in a circumferential manner (360 degrees) making the entire lug smaller and creating a true cold formed connection between wire and lug. Proper crimps lead to little to no resistance. A poor crimp can be a point of resistance and heat generation.

You can see the die heads have letters marking them. Each of these heads rotates and there are dies for many sizes of lugs.

In this photo, are the dies set to "H" or to "K"?
