Greenlee Textron Inc. introduces the K09-SYNCRO crimping tool. The new K09-SYNCRO features a patented design that enables a single, color-coded dial to rotate both dies simultaneously, preventing die misalignment and reducing rework.
“The K09-SYNCRO crimper’s patented die design includes a color-coded dial selection wheel which corresponds to the color on the lug that is being crimped,” said Ryan Berg, Director of Product Management. “The current process of aligning hard-to-read dials can result in misalignment and inaccurate crimps which ultimately lead to quality concerns and required rework.”
The laser-cut dies are marked with AWG die sizes and the die selection wheel is color-coded for easy identification. The rotating dies are built into the tool to eliminate loose pieces. Dies are phosphated, polished and tempered for increased durability and corrosion resistance and continues to accurately perform after 10,000 crimp cycles. The K09-SYNCRO is engineered with an engraved crimp groove; the die index number is inscribed on the crimped lug in order to easily verify the proper connection
Ergonomically designed handles decrease grip fatigue and increase user comfort. The telescoping handles are adjustable to four length positions for improved leverage and maneuverability in confined spaces. In addition, the adjustable handles allow for convenient storage.
The K09-SYNCRO is part of Greenlee’s SYNCRO series crimpers and has a crimping capacity of 1AWG – 250 kcmil. Both the K09-SYNCRO and K05-SYNCRO are the only crimpers in their class to be UL classified with seven major lug and splice manufacturers, including Anderson®, Blackburn®, Burndy®, ILSCO®, Panduit®, Thomas & Betts®, and Penn-Union® copper connectors.
