Safe-T-Cable™ Tools & Accessories
It’s a Matter of Choice…
Over 50 years of success in the design, production, and support of tooling for high-reliability applications in the aircraft and aerospace industry is the reason DMC was included in the development team for Safe-T-Cable™. The Tooling, which was initially designed to meet the challenges of Safe-T-Cable™ installation, has evolved into a product line that is flexible enough to meet the users’ exact needs. It’s your choice as to which model and accessories to specify, but always with the understanding that interchangeability, adjustability, and overall reliability was the basis of each application tool series.
Adjustable Tension Hand Tool Series
The most popular hand operated application tool for Safe-T-Cable™ is the SCTR Series Adjustable Tension Tool.
This tool series features a rotary tension mechanism which can be adjusted to precise cable tension requirements. This is a necessary control feature and very popular with all users. The tension will repeat at the setting which has been selected for reliable Safe-T-Cable® installations. Like all DMC Safe-T-Cable tools, this tool series features replaceable noses of various lengths
Pre-Set Tension Hand Tool Series
In some factories where control of tool adjustments are not possible, where the skill level is minimal, or applications where a single-handed operation of the tool is desirable, the SCT Series Application Tool may be the best choice. All tools in this series feature a tension mechanism, which allows single-handed use of the tool (after the cable is threaded through and into the tool). Multiple actuations of the tool handle will draw the cable into the tool until all slack is removed from the cable.
When the tool senses the correct tension (pre-set at the factory), it will shift into the crimp-cut mode, and complete the installation of the Safe-T-Cable® on the next closure of the handle. It's as simple as that.
Pneumatic Application Tool Series
When ergonomics and production demands are critical issues, the DMC SCTPR and SCTP Series Pneumatic Application Tool are a must. Safe-T-Cable™ is threaded through the fasteners, into the ferrule, and into the tool in the same fashion as the manual tools, but the push of a button is all that is necessary to complete the termination. The tool automatically applies tension (adjustable), crimps and cuts flush in one actuation of the trigger. These tools operate on standard shop air pressure, and may be suspended from a load balancer for an even greater improvement in ergonomics.
Battery Powered Tool Series
The DMC SCTE Series Battery Powered Safe-T-Cable™ tool is an ergonomic alternative to the other Safe-T-Cable™ Application Tools where a portable tool, without a hose or cord is required. The self contained hydraulic crimp system is reliable and the tool accommodates the same changeable noses and other accessories that are interchangeable with other DMC Safe-T-Cable™ Application Tools.
