Modular crimpers - Parker Hannifin

New Parkrimp-style modular crimpers can be both portable and bench mounted

New Parkrimp-style modular crimpers can be both portable and bench mounted, letting one unit perform the tasks of two standard crimpers. The Karrykrimp (82C-CHD) and Karrykrimp2 (85C-CHD) also provide faster cycle times and the ability to crimp longer bent fittings due to added height, compared with previous versions. The units require no calibration and continuously produce proper-diameter crimps. Parkrimp models can crimp straight or bent-stem fittings from 0.25 to 2.00-in. in diameter.
