CT 30 S

Pneumatic Crimping Machine


The CT 30 S Pneumatic Crimping Machine is designed for loose-piece crimping applications. Its scissor-action crimping head delivers up to 14 kN (1.6 tons) of force. The crimping head is spring-loaded which helps to properly and safely position the terminal before crimping. The ergonomic 15 degree tilt of the machine provides an optimal viewing angle of the crimping area for safe operation. The CT 30 S is very simple to set up and operate. A wide range of crimping dies are available to meet your application needs.
