CT 65

Hydraulic Crimping Machine


The powerful CT 65 hydraulic crimping machine is designed for loose-piece, heavy gauge crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 150 kN (16.9 tons) of force for open barrel, closed barrel and heavy duty, 4-indent crimping applications.
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 CT 65 features 3 programmable crimping profiles and job memory for up to 30 different jobs. Open and close positions can be programmed to minimize processing time and maximize quality. The interface can be locked with a key switch for quality assurance.
The quick-change system allows for fast changeover times between a variety of optional die adapters. The CT 65 is very simple to set up, program and operate. A wide range of crimping dies can be used by choosing the corresponding die adapter.
Due to its open construction, a variety of crimping or pressing applications can be handled on this powerful, yet relatively compact press.
