Durable connections according to international standards

Durable connections according to international standards

Crimping forms a secure connection between conductor and contact and has largely replaced soldering. A non-detachable connection can be made only with high-quality precision tools. We provide you with a wide range of high-quality and practical mechanical crimping tools. Crimped connections made with Weidmüller tools comply with international standards and regulations.

Crimping – a permanent connection

The most important task when crimping is to prevent crimping errors and thereby achieve homogeneous crimped connections. The production of a quality crimp not only requires manual skill, but also coordinated crimping tools and wire-end ferrules. International standards and regulations, such as DIN EN 60352-2, are essential quality criteria for perfect crimped connections. Tensile strength achievement and the prevention of typical crimping errors play a major role. The advantages of crimped connections are also listed quite explicitly.

The way to the perfect connection

The process chain for cable processing always starts with cutting the conductor. It is important to ensure that a clean, square and above all crush-free cut is made. After cutting the conductor, it is prepared for crimping. First, a predetermined length of insulation is removed without damaging the conductor. The subsequent contact point or the wire-end ferrule to be processed determines how much of the conductor insulation needs to be removed. After stripping the insulation, a suitable contact or wire-end ferrule can be crimped onto the end of the cable.

Whitepaper

null

Crimping is a joining method that connects two components with each other by means of a defined pressing procedure. The method forms a secure connection between the conductor and contact and has largely replaced the soldering process.Crimping is the creation of a homogeneous, permanent connection between the conductor and connecting element. This type of connection is achieved using high-quality precision tools.

The aim of this white paper is therefore to present the subject of crimping and the correct connection in a concise way.
