Self-Adjusting Rotatable Die Crimping Tool from AutomationDirect

March 22, 2019
The new DN-FE-16T crimping tool from AutomationDirect has a rotatable die and a trapezoidal crimp profile.

The crimper is self-adjusting for use with insulated and non-insulated wire ferrules in sizes from 26 to 8 AWG. The crimp head is rotatable to accommodate crimping from the side or from the front.


This new crimper is identical to AutomationDirect’s two existing self-adjusting crimpers, other than having the rotatable die and trapezoidal crimp profile. The crimpers are lightweight, compact and comfortable for crimping a wide range of insulated and non-insulated ferrules, crimping terminals, and connectors.


DN-FE series crimpers feature controlled-cycle ratchet action (with emergency release) to ensure crimps are completed according to specification every time. The crimpers are well balanced to avoid slipping and provide a low handle force for larger ferrule sizes. The compact, light-weight design provides easy access within confined spaces; a non-slip grip pad allows applying pressure against a surface for more crimp force.


DN-FE series crimp tools are $218.00 each and are backed by a 1-year warranty.
