A crimping tool is a device that is used to make cold weld joints between wires and a connector by deforming one or both of them to hold the other. A special connector is used to join metals together.

Professionals in any field need the right tools for the job. Using the wrong tool — or no tool at all — can lead to delays, frustration, and botched work that needs to be fixed again later.

Whether in the hands of DIYers or professionals, crimping tools are invaluable for making all kinds of electrical connections quickly and safely. Having high-quality, reliable crimping tools is as important to an IT professional as a carpenter’s hammer or a plumber’s pipe wrench.

Benefits of wire crimping tools

Of course, there are many benefits to having a crimp tool on hand when working on an electronics project. First off this is the fastest way to create a cold solder joint between two wires. Second, the wire connection made by a good crimping tool is safe and reliable. And unlike soldering, crimping does not require training and the use of hazardous materials.

Therefore, if you are performing a project that requires a lot of wires to be connected to each other, you will need to use a crimping tool. A good, heavy-duty crimping tool will not only make the job easier, but it will also make these wire connections safer and more reliable.

Types of crimping tools

Types of crimping tools

Cable (or wire) thickness is usually given in American Wire Gauge (AWG) or simply “gauge”. A crimp, also known as a terminal, needs to be sized accordingly for the connection to work properly.

There are different types of crimping tools, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, the three common types are hand-held, hydraulic, and hammer. While smaller wires do not require as much pressure to crimp, thicker wires require and may require the use of a hydraulic crimping machine.

 

What to consider when choosing the best crimping tool

Mainly consider the following factors, including material, application, operation volume, wire gauge and crimp profile, connector type and versatility.

 

Care and maintenance of crimping tools

Although wire crimping tools are basic and simple tools that can be used for a long time with minimal maintenance, it is always recommended that you take care of your tools and take safety precautions to keep them in good working order. Needless to say, the lifespan of a crimping tool depends largely on factors such as the frequency of use, the working environment, and the type of work it is used for.
