Mecal P040 Bench Press




This press is rated at 4 tonnes and will handle larger crimping requirements, typically up to 10mm.

The P040 Crimping Press is available either in semi-automatic (for bench-top use BT) configuration or in full automatic (integrated into a cut and strip machine) configuration. It can be coupled to all mini-applicators and applicators with the standard T-coupling and to all two-post crimping dies with a 20mm-diameter coupling shank. The P040 is normally delivered with a 135.8mm +/- 0.02mm crimping height ( measured from the applicator base plate to the press T-coupling when at Bottom Dead Centre). Upon request a shank coupling can be installed to set the crimping height to 212mm for MSA Crimping Dies. Fitted with a self-braking electric motor, the P040 has a standard stroke of 40mm, and upon request a variable stroke version is available: in this configuration the stroke can be set between 20 and 40mm, in 5mm increments. Other different strokes are available upon request. Mecal’s own CFA crimp force analyser can be fitted as an option. The semi-automatic configuration (for bench top use) always includes safety cover, reel arm, foot switch according to the international safety standard and CE regulation.
