CT 60

Heavy Duty Crimping Machine


The powerful CT 60 Pneumatic Crimping Machine is designed for loose-piece, heavy gauge crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 75 kN (8.4 tons) of force for insulated and noninsulated crimping applications up to 180 mm2 (350 MCM). An 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 new 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.

  • Parallel crimping action
  • Adjustable back stroke and crimp height for faster cycle times while reducing energy consumption
  • Full-cycle mechanism ensures dies close completely before they are reopened
  • Ergonomic 15 degree tilt provides clear view of work area 
  • LED illuminated crimping area for accurate, fast and safe positioning of the terminal
  • Integrated safety shield surrounds the crimping dies
  • Electronic piece counter
  • Easy footpedal operation
  • New Quick Change die adapter system 
  • It is necessary to order the corresponding die adapter (not included with the machine). See “Application Range” in the following tab.

Application Range

Processing Capabilities

  • Crimping applications requiring up to 75 kN (8.4 tons) of force
  • Crimp terminals onto wires up to 180 mm2 (350 MCM) 
  • It is necessary to order the corresponding die adapter (not included with the machine):
