CT 150

Hydraulic Crimping Machine


The CT 150 hydraulic crimping press offers power, efficiency, and precision for heavy gauge, loose-piece crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 150 kN (16.9 tons) of force
for applications for open barrel, closed barrel and heavy duty, 4-indent crimping applications.
Throughput is optimized by simultaneously minimizing the travel of the crimping head and an increased closing and opening speed. The fullcycle mechanism coupled with the integrated crimp monitor ensure high quality output to adhere to even the most demanding specifications.

  • Touchscreen interface for easy programming
  • Programmable stop positions increases productivity.
  • Integrated crimp monitoring and user authorization
  • Flexible platform can accommodate a range of applications.
  • Variety of crimp dies and adapters
  • Quick-change die adapters

Application Range

A variety of crimp dies are available for the CT 150 for a wide range of applications. U-die adapters will accept some industry standard U-shaped crimping dies.

  • Heavy duty
  • Stamped and formed
  • Closed barrel
  • Preinsulated

More Info

The CT 150 features a touchscreen display for fast, simple programming and memory for up to 100 different jobs. Three programmable crimping profiles allow you to maximize efficiency by minimizing the travel of the crimping head thereby eliminating wasted movement and time.

Profile 1 allows the user to program the bottom of the stroke. After the crimp, the crimping head opens completely. Profile 2 allows the user to program the bottom of the stroke and the top of the stroke. This minimizes the travel and cycle time for the overall process. Profile 3 allows the user to program an intermediate stop position in addition to the top and bottom of the stroke. The intermediate position is to hold the terminal in position before the crimp cycle.

The quick-change system allows for fast changeover times between a variety of optional die adapters.  A variety of crimp shapes and sizes is available to meet your applications. The large work surface is also conducive to custom applications and fixtures for customers who prefer to design their own tooling.

User access levels ensure that only those authorized can make changes to job or quality information. System diagnostics provide feedback on system temperatures, error list, I/O status and responses with remote access to aid in trouble shooting and resolving issues quickly. An ethernet interface make it simple to collect job data and parameters for trouble shooting or other purposes.

The ergonomic 15º tilt of the machine provides an optimal viewing angle and the LED light enhances visibility of the crimping area.

Due to its open construction, a variety of crimping or pressing applications can be handled on this powerful, yet relatively compact press.
