INCLUDES BOTH THE TOOL AND THE TURRET HEAD TO SUIT ALL DEUTSCH MACHINED DTM, DT AND DTP TERMINALS AND ALL M38999 SIZE 12, 16 AND 20 TERMINALS.
UPPER RANGE CRIMP TOOL - AF8 (M22520/1-01)
UPPER RANGE TURRET HEAD - (M22520/1-02)
The DMC AF8, qualified to MIL-DTL-22520/1*, has virtually limitless application within the specified wire range of 12 through 26 AWG. Over a thousand turret heads are available to adapt the tool frame to your specific military or proprietary contact/wire combination. The 8 impression crimp, which is standard in the AF8, assures absolute maximum tensile strength with almost every closed barrel contact. Special indent configurations and gaging are available upon request.
We include the turret that will crimp size 12, 16 and 20 awg MIL-SPEC connector terminals as well as DTM, DT and DTP machined terminals.
The precision ratchet controls the cycling of the tool in both directions of handle movement. This assures the same accurate crimp every time. It's like having a quality control inspector at every workstation.
Positive crimp depth is controlled by an 8 position selector knob conveniently located on the tool frame. The operator simply dials the desired step for the wire being used. This setting can be secured by the use of a locking pin or safety wire.
The carefully engineered design achieves the absolute maximum mechanical advantage and the tool's light weight helps minimize operator fatigue.
A permanent data plate is affixed to all turret heads and positioners. This plate lists specific contact part numbers, the corresponding position color code (for 3 position turret heads), and suggested selector depth settings for the wire size being used.
The adjustable head (P/N UH2-5) is ideally suited for lab work and prototype production applications. This head is attached in the same manner as explained above. The selected contact is inserted through the entry hole on the opposite side of the tool frame from the head. The height adjusting screw is then rotated until the contact is in the proper position for crimping. The screw can be secured with the locknut provided. Some testing will be necessary to determine the optimum selector setting for your contact/wire combination.
The AF8 is approximately 93/4" x 21/2" x 11/4" and weighs 15 oz.
Other than keeping the unit clean and properly stored when not in service, no operator maintenance is required. DMC offers complete factory service by knowledgeable technicians within a reasonable turnaround time. Complete instructions concerning the use, care, and warranty are supplied with each tool.
