Motorised Wire Terminal Tester
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.

  •  Clear display and simple controlsClear 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.
  •  CrimpTest-1 standard fixturesRotary Crimp Receptacle (RCR), holder with 10 slots to suit wires from 1.5 mm (1/16″) to 8 mm (5/16″)
  •  Stepped ring terminal pin for eyelet loops from 4 mm to 10 mm internal diameter
  •  Cam grip fixture to suit wires up to 11 mm (0.4") diameter

RS232 (RJ45 connector), for connection to printers, computers and dataloggers. Print results manually, 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.
