ACO 08


The electronic crimp-force monitoring system ACO 08 stands for highest production precision and enables manufacturers to produce an excellent, fully functional quality product.

  • User-friendly device management as well as simple referencing and operation
  • Job management for quick and easy setup processes
  • User administration for data and parameter protection
  • Generation of live-force diagrams while production is running
  • Barcode interface for quick and easy job loading
  • 8 GB of memory for jobs, force curves and data storage, as well as 4.3-inch touchscreen display

Application Range

The ACO 08 was designed to meet the high quality requirements of the wire harness industry. The ACO 08 is a compact device that can be easily integrated into all Schleuniger benchtop crimping presses, but also into similar third-party products. It enables the monitoring of crimping processes by analyzing each individual crimp-force curve in detail while production is running, helps the operator to optimize processing steps, and documents measurement results.
