New In-line Indent Crimper

crimping tool Greenlee

Greenlee continues to drive efficiency with its new EK6IDL six-ton dieless lightweight crimping tool, designed with a dual stage telescopic cylinder to identify the correct pressure needed to crimp a broad range of wire classes.

The EK6IDL has two pistons, an interior small piston that transmits a force of 30kN. This enables the tool to fix cable lugs and connectors to the correct position prior to crimping operations and crimp smaller cross sections up to 1/0 AWG. The exterior piston transmits a force of 60kN and crimps all larger cross sections.

The EK6IDL tool is managed by Greenlee’s Intelli-Crimp technology, which measures pressure and amperage 32 times a second. This provides variable 30kN/60kN cylinder safeguards that ensure optimal crimp performance is always being achieved, regardless of the cross section. The tool can be used in an extremely large crimp range, for copper material 8AWG-500MCM and aluminum material 1/0AWG-350MCM.

The EK6IDL is Gator Eye compatible, which allows users to get the most of their tools with the ability to track work history, generate reports, performance logs, and indicates when the tools needs to be recalibrated.

Applications areas include industrial and commercial electricians, switchgear, control-gear, as well as transformer manufacturers where standard and fine stranded conductors are commonly used, often in restricted areas.
