Termination Technology
ODU offers three different contact termination technologies for
the single contacts:
––Solder
––Screw
––Crimp
Solder termination
Soldering is a procedure to join metal components with the help of
a molten joining metal (solder) with a melting temperature below
the melting temperatures of the base materials that are to be joined.
In contrast to crimping, the wire to be soldered can also be
considerably smaller than the intended solder hole.
Warning: avoid unacceptable temperature increases in sockets.
Cross-section of hexagonal crimping
Screw termination
This method of terminating cables is usually done using cable lugs
with serrated washers (flat washers) and nuts. Washers and nuts are
not part of the standard delivery program (supplied if needed).
Contacts with 8-point crimping
Crimp termination
Contacting by crimping in order to produce connection lines results
in a permanent, corrosion-free and securely contacted connection.
Crimping is a time-saving procedure that can be performed by
non-experts.
The cold pressing (crimping) causes the conductor and contact
material to be compressed at the pressure point in such a way that
an almost gas-tight connection is produced that resists pulling to an
extent that depends on the conductor material.
Crimping can be done both on the smallest cross-sections and on
large ones. Smaller cross-sections (0.5-2.5 mm²) generally require
8-point crimping tools and the larger ones generally require
hexagonal crimping tools. The width across corners of the crimping
is no larger than the original diameter. The insulation of the cable is
not damaged and can be brought up to the contact end.
Sectional image of hexagonal and 8-point crimping:
For the 8-point crimping, two 4-point crimpings lie one
behind the other.
For a proper crimp, the diameter of the hole must be precisely
matched to the cable. Proper crimping of our contacts can only be
guaranteed with the crimping tools recommended by ODU. In
order to advise you, we must know the type of cable and the cable
cross-section, preferably with a sample and a datasheet.

Crimping Tools *
Suitable for all round ODU SPRINGTAC® and ODU LAMTAC® Sockets and Pins
prematurely. Opening is possible only after pressing at
the required pressure has been completed.
8-point crimping tool
It is suitable for cross-sections from 0.08 to 2.5 mm²
(AWG28 – AWG12).
The crimping tool has a locking system that prevents it
from opening before the pressing has been completed.
It is provided with a user-friendly digital display.
Part Number: 080.000.051.000.000
Hexagonal crimping tool
This is suitable for cross-sections of 1.5 mm², 2.5 mm²,
4.0 mm² and 6.0 mm².
The crimping tool has a locking system that prevents it
from opening before the pressing has been completed.
Part Number: 080.000.062.000.000
Hydraulic crimping tool
It is suitable for cross-sections of 10 mm² and 50 mm².
The crimping tool has a locking system that prevents it
from opening before the pressing has been completed. It
is provided with a safety valve that opens automatically as
soon as the pressure required for complete compression
has been reached.
Part Number: 080.000.026.000.000
Hydraulic crimping tool
For cross-sections from 7037– 500 mm².
