Molex Incorporated announced its heavy-duty TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press, which provides up to 31 kN (7000 lbf) for bench-top crimping large lug products of up to 4 AWG. This direct-drive press is designed for mid-volume, semi-automatic bench-top operations such as those found in the automotive, industrial and commercial markets. Capable of production rates of up to 2,400 terminations per hour, the TM-4000 offers contract manufacturers, assembly houses and design engineers a method applying a wide range of side- and rear-feed terminals to heavy-gauge wires. The TM-4000 accepts most industry standard applicators, including air-feed applicators that process terminals mounted on Mylar tape, as well as FineAdjust and Mini-Mac applicators with side and rear feeds. Two attached safety interlock switches prevent the press from cycling if the guard is open or when it is being hand cycled.
