After stripping the insulation, a suitable contact or wire end ferrule can be crimped onto the end of the cable. Crimping forms a secure connection between conductor and contact and has largely replaced soldering. Crimping denotes the creation of a homogeneous, permanent connection between conductor and connecting element. The connection can be made only with high-quality precision tools. The result is a secure and reliable connection both in mechanical and electrical terms. Weidmüller offers a wide range of mechanical crimping tools. Integral ratchets with release mechanisms guarantee optimum crimping. Crimped connections made with Weidmüller tools comply with international standards and regulations.
