CT 60

Heavy Duty Crimping Machine


The powerful CT 60 Pneumatic Crimping Machine is designed for loose-piece, medium gauge crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 60 kN ( 6.7 tons) of force for open and closed barrel applications including wire end ferrules. The optional, heavy-duty die adapter is recommended for 35 mm2 (2 AWG) and above. The quality of the crimp is guaranteed by a full-cycle mechanism that
assures that the dies have closed completely before they are reopened.
The ergonomic 15-degree tilt of the machine provides an optimal viewing angle and the LED light enhances visibility of the crimping area. The machine also features an adjustable back stroke and crimp height that enables faster cycle times while reducing energy consumption.
The quick-change die adapter system allows for fast changeover times and to prepare for upcoming jobs by using additional (optional) die adapters. The CT 60 is very simple to set up and operate. A wide range of crimping dies can be used by choosing the corresponding die adapter.
