Save Time and Money by Replacing Your Old Lockwire System with Safe-T-Cable®
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 that 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, the skill level may be lacking, 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.
Pneumatic Tool Series
When ergonomics and production demands are critical issues, the DMC SCTPR and SCTP Series Pneumatic tools are the right choice.
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.
