MIL Spec Circular Indent Crimp Tools
Models: MH801, MH802, MH803, MH804, GS100-1 & GS200-1
When special conditions call for a new tool design, we make every effort to utilize the components of existing tools which have been proven reliable both in field use and controlled test programs.
Such is the case with this tool series. The design of certain shielded contacts requires two additional crimping operations. One for the shield crimp sleeve, the other for the outer body. All of the tools give a concentric circular crimp configuration required by certain shielded contacts to insure compatibility with connector inserts and installing or removal tools in rear release applications, and/or maintain consistent electric impedance. Thus an indenter pattern which conforms to the appropriate military drawing (see chart for specific part numbers) was adapted to our familiar standard and miniature tool frames. (Note: On the MH801, MH802, MH803, and MH804 tools, in addition to the four opposing indenters these tools also have four retainers which encompass the contact prior to the initiation of the crimping operation thus assuring concentricity.)
A full complement of positioners, inspection gages, and other accessories are available for these tool frames. The GS100-1 & GS200-1 tools are approximately 9 3⁄4” x 2 1⁄2” x 1 1⁄4” and weigh 15 oz each. The MH801, MH802, MH803, & MH804 tools are 6 3⁄4” in length and weigh approximately 10 oz each.
The technical section on the Coaxial Contact Tool Selection Guide lists the part numbers of standard M39029 contacts which require these tools; however, the concept may be adapted to other applications. Consult factory for specific details.
Pneumatic versions of these tools can be found here.
