Utility supplies: U-Style Dies for electrical installation

utility supplies Milwaukee Tool

Utility equipment: Milwaukee Tool has breathed new life into a category that is core to the electrical installation process with the introduction of EXACT™ 12T U-Style Dies. Each EXACT™ die length is specifically designed to match each connector width, producing quality crimps faster on all wire sizes – whether it’s #8, 750 MCM, or any size in-between.

Accuracy and dependability are key to a successful crimp. EXACT™ 12T U-Style Dies produce cULus classified crimps according to the UL 486A-B classification standards for #8 - 750 MCM Cu and Dual Rated Anderson, Blackburn®, Burndy, Ilsco, Panduit, Penn-Union and Thomas & Betts Connectors when used with the M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ 750 MCM Crimper.* Committed to the highest level of accuracy, all Milwaukee® U-Style Dies are the only dies in the industry that are 100% serialized and measured with individual measurement reports.**

Each die is easily recognizable and features brightly colored bands and wire size markings that correspond to industry standard color coding so users can quickly and easily choose the correct die. That same color is also used for a center alignment mark on the top of each die to aid in crimp placement. By imprinting the wire size onto completed connectors EXACT™ Dies eliminate the need for cross-referencing, providing the easiest inspection after crimping.

The new EXACT™ 12T U-Style Dies confirm Milwaukee’s unrelenting commitment to listening to its users and providing solutions that maximize jobsite productivity.
