One of the biggest benefits with Weidmuller’s Crimping Tool is the rotating die head. “If you’re working somewhere where you can’t easily gain access to, you can go nose on, same as Jokari’s flat cable strippers.”

There is virtually no effort needed to operate this crimping tool, “the action is ridiculously light and easy, whereas with other brands, you really need to press down” our trainer explains.

They are expensive, but strong and robust and an invaluable tool if you are doing it every day. This pair has lasted 7 years with one of our electrical trainers and is still going strong.

“They still have the same performance and at one point I was doing 7,500 terminations a week for 3 months. They had constant use and still worked fine.”
