PIDG and PLASTI- GRIP Terminal and Splice Crimping Heads
Tyco Electronics Corporation
The insulation crimping section of the crimping head
has three positions: 1—Tight; 2—Medium; and
Position 3 is for wire having a large insulation
diameter; Position 2 is for wire having a medium
insulation diameter; and Position 1 is for wire having a
small insulation diameter.
1. Perform insulation crimp adjustment by placing
adjustment pins in Position 3 (loose), as shown in
2. Crimp the terminal as described in Paragraph
4.1, Terminal Crimping Procedure.
3. Remove crimped terminal from crimping jaws
and visually inspect the insulation barrel crimp of
the terminal. The insulation barrel crimp should be
in contact with and should support the wire
insulation. If the insulation barrel crimp does not
provide “support” for wire insulation, place
adjustment pins in Position 2 (medium) and repeat
the crimp procedure.
4. Repeat adjustment as necessary until desired
insulation support is obtained. DO NOT use a
tighter setting than required.
5. CRIMP INSPECTION
Inspect crimped terminals and splices by checking the
features described in Figure 6. Use only terminals or
splices that meet the conditions shown in the
“ACCEPT” column. “REJECT” terminations can be
avoided through careful use of instructions in
Section 4, and by performing regular head
maintenance, as described in Section 6.
6. MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION
To avoid personal injury, ALWAYS disconnect the
battery from the tool before performing
maintenance or inspection.
Tyco Electronics recommends that a maintenance
and inspection program be performed periodically to
ensure dependable and uniform terminations. The
crimping head should be inspected once a month.
Frequency of inspection should be adjusted to suit
your requirements through experience. Frequency of
inspection depends on:
1. The care, amount of use, and handling of the
2. The type and size of the product crimped.
3. The degree of operator skill.
4. The presence of abnormal amounts of dust and
5. Your own established standards.
Each crimping head is thoroughly inspected before
packaging. Since there is the possibility of crimping
head damage during shipment, new crimping heads
should be inspected immediately upon arrival at your
6.1. Daily Maintenance
Tyco Electronics recommends that each operator be
responsible for the following steps of daily
1. Remove dust, moisture, and other contaminants
with a clean, soft brush, or a lint--free cloth. Do
NOT use objects that could damage the head.
2. Make sure that all pins, rings, and other
components are in place and secure.
To avoid personal injury and damage to the tool,
make sure quick pins are properly inserted.
3. Make certain all surfaces are protected with a
thin coat of any good SAE 20 motor oil. Do NOT oil
4. When the head assembly is not in use, store it
in a clean dry, area.
6.2. Periodic Inspection
Regular inspections should be performed by quality
control personnel. A record of scheduled inspections
should remain with the crimping heads or be supplied
to supervisory personnel responsible for the crimping
heads. Though recommendations call for at least one
inspection a month, the frequency should be based
on amount of use, working conditions, operator
training and skill, and your established company
policies. These inspections should include a visual
inspection (Paragraph 6.3) and a crimping chamber
inspection (Paragraph 6.5).
6.3. Visual Inspection
1. Remove all lubrication and accumulated film by
immersing the crimping head in a suitable
commercial degreaser that will not affect paint or
2. Make certain all components are in place. If
replacements are necessary, refer to Figure 9.
3. Check all bearing surfaces for wear.
4. Inspect crimp area for flattened, chipped, or
broken areas. Replace worn or damaged parts.
