Special Indent Configurations and Gaging Are Available Upon Request. For Proper Operation, the Tool Must Be Mated with One of the Following Optional Accessories: a Military Standard or Non-military Turret Head (Th-xxx Part No. Series), a Military Standard or Non-military Positioner (Tp-xxx Part No. Series), or an Adjustable Head (Part No. Uh2-5). This is Done Simply by Orienting the Head in the Keyed Position, and by Tightening the Hex Socket Screws Provided as Part of the Head.
The Precision Ratchet Controls Cycling of the Tool in Both Directions of Handle Movement. This Assures the Same Accurate Crimp Every Time. It's Like Having a Quality Control Inspector at Every Work Station. Positive Crimp Depth is Controlled by an 8 Position Selector Knob Conveniently Located on the Tool Frame. the Operator Simply Dials the Desired Step for the Wire Being Used. This Setting Can Be Secured by Use of a Locking Pin or Safety Wire. The Carefully Engineered Design Achieves the Absolute Maximum Mechanical Advantage and the Tool's Light Weight Helps Minimize Operator Fatigue.
A Permanent Dataplate is Affixed to All Turret Heads and Positioners. This Plate Lists Specific Contact Part Numbers, the Corresponding Position Color Code (For 3 Position Turret Heads), and Suggested Selector Depth Settings for the Wire Size Being Used. The Adjustable Head (P/N Uh2-5) is Ideally Suited for Lab Work and Prototype Production Applications. This Head is Attached in the Same Manner as Explained Above. the Selected Contact is Inserted Through the Entry Hole on the Opposite Side of the Tool Frame from the Head. the Height Adjusting Screw is then Rotated Until the Contact is in the Proper Position for Crimping. the Screw Can Be Secured with the Locknut Provided.

DMC Miniature Adjustable Crimp Tools - AFM8 (m22520/2-01) Qualified to Mil-DTL-22520/2*, the dmc afm8 is designed for most of the miniature and sub-miniature connector types that are so widely used in electronic systems. The afm8 meets the need for a miniature tool accommodating wire sizes 20 through 32 awg. The AFM8 gives a mil-standard 8 impression crimp, which assures maximum tensile strength. The cycle controlled precision ratchet assures consistently accurate crimps every time. The tool frame has a built-in 8 step selector knob for ease in dialing the correct crimp depth setting for the wire being used. Positioners adapt the tool frame to a particular application. The data plate on each positioner designates which contacts the positioner accommodates for its wire size and indicates selector position. The positioner is easily removed and changed. Periodic gaging is recommended to insure accurate calibration. This is easily accomplished with the m22520/3-1 “go/no-go” gage (dmc part no. G125) on sel setting #8. The afm8 is 6 3/4" in length and weighs approximately 10 oz. Other than keeping the tool clean and properly stored when not in use, no operator maintenance is required. Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here. The DMC274 tool kit (pictured right) contains the AFM8 tool frame, tool gage, and all mil-spec positioners. Also included in the dmc274 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart. change to as 22520 in process consult dmc for status.
DMC Middle Range Crimp Tool - mh860 (m22520/7-01) Qalified to mil-dtl-22520/7*, the DMC MH860 is a recent addition to the military specification. It was developed to meet the demonstrated need for supporting the majority of electrical systems with one versatile crimp tool frame. The mh860 accepts the entire middle wire range of 16 through 28 awg, with positioners which adapt it to virtually all applications consistent with others in the mil-dtl-22520 family. Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here. The dmc123 tool kit contains the mh860 tool frame, tool gauge, and all mil-spec positioners also included in the dmc123 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart.
