CT 34 S

Pneumatic Crimping Machine


The CT 34 S Pneumatic Crimping Machine is designed for loose-piece crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 20 kN (2.5 tons) of force for open and closed barrel applications including wire end ferrules. The quality of the crimp is guaranteed by a full-cycle mechanism that assures that the dies have closed completely before the crimp cycle stops. The ergonomic 15-degree tilt of the machine provides an optimal viewing angle and the LED light enhances visibility of the crimping area. The crimping head is spring loaded in the closed position and is opened by using the lever on the right side of the machine. When the lever is released, the dies close lightly to hold the terminal in place. The operator presses the footpedal to complete the crimping cycle. As an added safety feature, the machine will not cycle if the dies are opened more than 5.9 mm (0.23“). Due to these added safety features, safety shields are optional to increase productivity.
The new quick-change die adapter system allows for fast changeover times and lets users prepare for upcoming jobs by using additional (optional) die adapters. The CT 34 S is very simple to set up and operate. A wide range of crimping dies can be used by choosing the corresponding die adapter.
