Daniels Manufacturing Corp. (DMC) has received QPL status on the 12-ton TBHD1M remote hydraulic crimp head (MS25441-1), meeting the requirements of the new spec 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 power systems. Boeing ST 2354 Series dies are also available for this tool. In some cases the tool can be used as a hand-held crimper, but the tool weight (9.6 pounds) 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. The TBHD1M is 10 inches (254 mm) long and 6 inches (152.4 mm) wide. For more information visit www.DMCTools.com.
