Slingco’s Hydraulic Crimping Tools are designed to crimp sleeves and lugs on ACSR and ACAR transmission & distribution cables using dies that meet the standards of the utility industry. Our crimping tools are ideal for use in constructing substations and transmission lines.
The Single-Acting Crimping Tool uses hydraulic pressure to advance the ram into position, and an internal spring to return the ram to the original position. The Double-Acting Crimping Tool advances and returns the ram using hydraulic pressure alone, eliminating the possibility of the ram sticking or becoming jammed.
Our Hydraulic Crimping Tools come in a steel carrying case, and are lightweight and portable. Our crimping tools accept Slingco S60 Dies, or any shell-type dies used with Alcoa or Burndy 60-ton or 100-ton crimping tools.
