Crimpers squeeze metal together to join two pieces or form a seal. Crimping tools accomplish tasks on the smallest and the largest scales, from simple wire connections to larger industrial materials.
Hand crimpers look like other types of pliers, except that they use strong teeth to compress softer metals. These tools most commonly crimp together two wires or a wire and a connector to save you the time and expense of solder work and forms a more permanent connection than simply twisting the two wires together. Some crimping tools close gutter downspouts for a better fit. Another type of electrical crimper includes hammer-style crimping tools. Instead of squeezing crimping pliers, you place your wire and connectors into the tool and use a hammer to deliver the crimping force. For added convenience, some manufacturers sell crimping jaws that attach over plier handles to turn the regular pliers you already own into crimping tools.
Battery crimpers use high-powered hydraulic motors to deliver extreme crimping force. The strongest of these tools can achieve up to 12,000 pounds of force to seal virtually any metal material. Some battery crimpers have alarms to tell you if you have not applied enough force to the project, which ensures an acceptable seal. Their battery-powered operation works by a simple trigger pull and prevents hand strain so you can put in a full day of effortless work and accomplish many times the number of crimps that you could with hand crimps alone.
