Pneumatic Open Frame Tool

 

HX23 Bench Crimp Production Press

 
COMPATIBILITY WITH EXISTING DIES

The HX23 accommodates all M22520/5-XX military and Daniels "Y" series crimp dies. This affords total utilization of existing dies and total interchangeability with M22520/5-01 (Daniels HX4) hand tool frames.

FULL CYCLE CONTROL

Full die closure is assured on every crimp. The internal cycle control network will not allow the tool to open until complete closure is attended. A simple procedure is available to open the tool incases where a complete cycle cannot be effected. A secure method is provided to prevent unauthorized personnel from defeating the cycle control system.

HANDS FREE OPERATION

There are no awkward levers or mechanisms used to open or close the crimp dies. These operations waste time and distract the operator's attention. When the tool is in the normal condition, the crimp dies are fully open where contact assemblies can easily be inserted. A touch of the foot valve releases the dies to a gripping position (spring pressure only). When the operator is satisfied that the contact assembly is positioned correctly, another actuation of the same foot valve completes the crimp and quickly returns the die to open position.

OPERATOR SAFETY FEATURES

The HX23 is equipped with a transparent guard which affords the protection, but does not restrict vision. The Hands Free Operation system allows the operator to position the contact assembly while the die is under spring pressure only. The operator is then free to let the tool hold the contact assembly during the crimp cycle while the operator's hands and fingers are a safe distance from the crimping die. The HX23 foot valve assembly is constructed with a protective shroud to prevent accidental actuation. For operation the operator places their foot under the shroud to depress the pedal.

FULL PNEUMATIC OPERATION

Standard clean, dry shop air at the recommended pressure is all that is required to operate the HX23 tool. There are no electrical or hydraulic requirements.

The HX23 crimp tool features a system of interchangeable dies which eliminates the need for separate fixed die crimp tools for each and every different application. Dies in various crimp patterns are available for MIL-C-39029 shielded contacts, MIL-C-39012 coaxial connectors, MIL-T-7928 terminals and splices, and other commercial and military terminating components.


1. The die sets snap in and out of the crimp tool for interchangeability. A die removal tool is included with the HX23 for operator convenience. CAUTION: Always disconnect the air supply when changing the die sets.

 

2. The first pulse of the foot valve will close the HX23 under light spring pressure. This grips the crimp termination device in the proper location for crimping. The second pulse completes the crimp, and returns the tool to the fully open position.

 

ADJUSTABLE DIES FOR TERMINAL & SPLICES

Adjustable Crimping Dies accept terminations which conform to MIL-T-7928, MS25036 (class 1 and 2) and other military or commercial specifications.
