Hydraulic Crimpers and Cutters
Emerson is now offering professionals four new models of Greenlee battery hydraulic crimpers and cutters: the In-Line Quad Point Indenter (EK6ATILX, EK6FTILX), the 6-Ton Underground Indenting Crimper (EK6IDCLX) and the In-Line ACSR and Guy Wire Cutter (ESC25LX).
The new Next Generation Gator tools have a single trigger activation, an enclosed impact-resistant housing to protect the tool from debris, and an over-molded grip for easy, comfortable handling and control. They are powered by an 18-volt lithium-ion 4.0Ah Makita battery platform and equipped with an OLED screen to show instantaneous tool performance when needed.
Equipped with Intelli-CRIMP technology, the new in-line quad point crimpers monitor each cycle of use to ensure correct crimping force is achieved. If the complete crimping force is not reached, the tool will notify the professional with an audible alarm and visual alert, and the OLED screen will show a description of the tool problem. The four self-contained crimping points eliminate the need for individual die sets, increasing productivity on the job. The new in-line crimpers are 25% lighter than pistol tool configurations and are ergonomically designed to produce less wrist torque, reducing operator fatigue.
The new dieless indenting crimper eliminates the risk of incorrect die selection with the use of a large exterior piston and small interior piston. The interior small piston performs two functions at a force of 30kN: First it aligns the cable lugs and connectors to the correct position, and then it crimps smaller cross-sections up to 1/0 AWG. The exterior piston crimps larger cross-sections at 60kN to ensure a tight connection. The compact indenting crimper is ideal for working in tight spaces and features a coated head brush guard to protect users from accidental contact with conductors.
Equipped with durable and long-lasting replaceable ACSR blades, the new In-Line ACSR and Guy Wire Cutter can cut up to 557 MCM Eagle ACSR and 3/8-inch EHS guy wire. Its compact scissor-style blades combined with 350-degree rotating head allow the operator to quickly and easily cut from any position. The ergonomic inline design is lightweight and well-balanced, making it ideal for one-handed overhead cutting.
