Motorised Wire Terminal Tester
An ideal quality checking unit for all kinds of wire terminals


The Mecmesin CrimpTest-1 kN is a horizontal, motorised wire terminal tester, designed for ease of use and minimal training, rapid throughput and high duty cycle operation. Rugged construction, simple controls and a clear display make this compact, benchtop unit an ideal quality checking instrument for wire terminal manufacturing equipment, right at the point of production.

  • Clear display and simple controlsClear indication of pull-off load and pass/fail status.
  • Just four multifunction buttons for all settings, operation and results output.
  • Peak force at break is automatically calculated.
  • Choose from four speed settings: 25, 50, 100 and 200 mm/min.
  • CrimpTest-1 standard fixturesRotary Crimp Receptacle (RCR), holder with 9 slots to suit wires from 1.5 mm (1/16″) to 8 mm (5/16″)
  • Stepped ring terminal pin for loops from 4 mm to 10 mm
  • Cam grip fixture to suit wires up to 11 mm (0.4") diameter

RS232 (RJ45 connector), for connection to printers or data terminal. Print results of individual tests, or auto-print every result at the end of each test.

Constructed for high duty cycleRobust, ideal for regular use in the production environment and IP52 rated against ingress of dust, wire fragments and water.
