Compared to machine processing, hand tools have a reputation for being much more difficult to achieve consistently good quality. Nevertheless, for certain applications it is impossible to imagine production without manual tools for crimping, stripping or cutting; whether for economic reasons (small series production) or simply for physical reasons (use of machines not possible for reasons of space or application).

We take a close look at quality requirements for manual tools for cutting, stripping and crimping.  From the preparation to the testing of crimp connections. Problems and errors that may occur and how to solve or avoid them. We look at the different types of crimp terminals, their characteristics and their particularities during manual processing. We also explore current industry standards and explain ways how to achieve optimum quality for your own applications.
