This press is rated at 8 tonnes and will handle larger crimping requirements, typically up to 25mm.
The P080 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 standard variable stroke can be adjusted either to 40 or 50mm, with other strokes available upon request. Fitted with a self-braking electric motor, the P080 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 Center), but the operator can set the crimping height at 212mm with simple tools and an adapting kit (shank coupling) supplied with the press. Optional safety optical barriers allow the operator to load loose terminals directly over the anvil. 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.
