An ideal quality checking unit for all kinds of wire terminals

The Mecmesin CrimpTest 1 kN is a horizontal, motorised pull tester. Specifically designed for ease of use with minimal training it allows rapid throughput when testing the tensile strength of wire terminals.

Rugged in construction with simple controls and a clear display this compact, benchtop crimp tester is an ideal solution for quality control checks performed right at the point of production.

With a tensile strength capacity up to 1 kN (220 lbf), Mecmesin’s crimp tester is perfect for wire terminal and wire crimp destructive pull-off test applications.



CrimpTest 1 kN details

Control and display

  •  Clear indication of pull-off load and pass/fail status based on allowable limits.
  •  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.

Clear display and simple controls

Standard fixtures

  •  Rotary Crimp Receptacle (RCR), holder with 10 slots to suit wires from 1.5 mm (1/16″) to 8 mm (5/16″)
