  • Qualified to AS22520/5
  • Accommodates Daniels "Y" series crimp dies

Qualified to AS22520/5*, the DMC HX4 crimp tool features a system of interchangeable dies (accommodates "Y" series dies) which eliminate the need for separate fixed die crimp tools for each and every different application.  Many maintenance and production organizations have standardized on one of these models, thus eliminating the cost associated with maintaining and calibrating bulky inventories of single purpose, dedicated tools.

Tremendous flexibility and cost advantages exist with this crimping system due to the wide variety of military and proprietary interchangeable dies available for this tool frame.  As new requirements evolve, a new set of dies is all that’s required to meet the demand.

Crimping dies are snapped into the tool frame and retained in place by internal spring clips.  They may be permanently secured, if desired, by pressing a roll pin into the holes provided.

The tool frame is equipped with a positive ratchet assembly which controls complete handle movement in both directions.

HEXagonal crimp dies are available in a variety of combinations having single, double, and even triple cavity design.  These dies accommodate most coaxial and triaxial connectors and contacts conforming to MIL-DTL-39012, AS39029, and numerous proprietary configurations.  Other designs are available for coaxial connections requiring different termination techniques.

Dies in various crimp patterns are also available for insulated and uninsulated terminal lugs, wire splices and end caps relating to M7928, MS17143, MS25036, MS25181, MS27429, MS25274, MS20659, M81824, MS21003 through MS21015, and commercial part numbers.  Several power contacts too large for conventional hand tools are also covered by interchangeable dies for the HX4.

If your application requirement is not already covered by one of our standard dies, our engineering department will be pleased to discuss a design to suit your needs.
