Qualified to Mil-DTL-22520/2*, the dmc afm8 is designed for most of the miniature and sub-miniature connector types that are so widely used in electronic systems. The afm8 meets the need for a miniature tool accommodating wire sizes 20 through 32 awg.

The AFM8 gives a mil-standard 8 impression crimp, which assures maximum tensile strength. The cycle controlled precision ratchet assures consistently accurate crimps every time. The tool frame has a built-in 8 step selector knob for ease in dialing the correct crimp depth setting for the wire being used.

Positioners adapt the tool frame to a particular application. The data plate on each positioner designates which contacts the positioner accommodates for its wire size and indicates selector position. The positioner is easily removed and changed.

Periodic gaging is recommended to insure accurate calibration. This is easily accomplished with the m22520/3-1 “go/no-go” gage (dmc part no. G125) on sel setting #8. The afm8 is 6 3/4" in length and weighs approximately 10 oz.

Open Frame Crimp Tools M22520/5-01 (HX4) & M22520/10-01 (HX3)

The DMC HX4 and HX3 series crimp tools feature a system of interchangeable dies which eliminate the need of separate fixed die crimp tools for each and every different application. Many maintenance and manufacturing concerns have standardized on one of these models, thus eliminating the cost associated with maintaining and calibrating bulky inventories of single purpose tools.

Tremendous flexibility and cost advantages exist with this crimping system due to the wide variety of interchangeable dies which are available for these tool frames. As new requirements evolve, a new set
of dies is all that’s required to meet the demand. A truly modern concept which will not require major change with time…only simple additions.

Crimping dies are snapped into the tool frame and retained in place by internal spring clips. They may be permanently secured, if desired, by driving a roll pin into the holes provided.

The tool frames are equipped with a positive ratchet assembly which controls complete handle movement in both directions.

Hexagonal crimp dies are available in a variety of combinations having single, double, and even triple cavity design. These dies accommodate most coaxial and biaxial connectors and contacts conforming to MIL-C-39012, MIL-C-39029, and numerous proprietary configurations. Other designs are available for coaxial connections requiring different termination techniques

Bench Press Style Open Frame Crimp Tools - UDT4

Approx Price: Rs 41,000 / Piece 
DMC Bench Press Style Open Frame Crimp Tools - UDT4 & UDT3

The UDT4 & UDT3 tools have the die frame opening on the opposite side of the tool frame from the HX4 & HX3 so the tool can be used as a portable bench top press or as a hand tool. The tool frames are equipped with the same positive ratchet assembly and accept the same “Y” and “X” series dies. When used as a bench top press, the operator gains a greater mechanical advantage, thereby reducing operator fatigue.
