Daniels Manufacturing Corp. (DMC) has received QPL status on the TBHD1M Remote Hydraulic Crimp Head (MS25441-1), meeting the requirements of the new AS5259. The 12 tons of crimp force and the utilization of the HD002 (MS23002), HD485 (MS90485), and HD442 (MS25442) dies offers a crimp range from 8 to 4/0 AWG conductors in military/aerospace applications, and to 750 MCM applications on commercial systems. In some cases the tool can be used as a hand-held crimper, but the tool weight (9.6 lbs) and force means mounting it in a stationary position with a bench mount (p/n BM-2A) is the preferred mode of operation. The recommended hydraulic pump is the robust HPU11M air powered pump. It is 10 inches (254 mm) long, 6 inches (152.4 mm) wide, and weighs 9.6 pounds (6.9 kg).
