Keys to Quality Crimping
Crimping Conditions
Crimp connections are the standard in
industrial manufacturing, maintaining
good connection under extreme
mechanical, thermal, and
environmental conditions. Successful
crimping results from the correct
relationship between wire, terminal,
and crimping tool. Once the terminal
selection is made and crimping
criteria defined by the connection
designer, the tooling characteristics
are fully determined.
lead-processing systems can
incorporate varying degrees of
automation, from one-at-a-time
machines, with wires hand-fed,
activated by an operator-driven foot
switch to fully automated leadmakers that cut and strip the wires,
and feed wires and terminals.
Applicators are configured by TE
according to the wire and terminal
type, and in some cases, by
the terminator specifications.
These conditions are realized in:
• Wire—conductor section and
insulation diameters and material
Successful crimping results from the correct
relationship between wire, terminal, and
crimping tool.
• Terminal—conductor and insulation
barrel crimp styles and dimensions
• Crimping equipment—settings for
wire and insulation crimp height, feed
parameters, and adjustments
Summarizing, the conductor crimp
ensures a good connection between
the wire and the terminal. The
insulation crimp supports the wire to
reduce the effects of vibration and
movement on the conductor crimp.
Terminals to be crimped in automatic
equipment are generally supplied in
continuous strips (shown here) or, in
some cases, as loose pieces.
Accomplishing the Desired
Crimp
Terminal type and wire parameters
depend on the production
requirement. Both open barrel and
closed barrel terminals are supplied on
continuous strips. Crimping is
performed by an applicator, a
mechanism that performs the
functions of feeding the terminal,
cutting the terminal from the strip,
and crimping wire and insulation.
Crimping force is provided by a
terminator in which the applicator is
mounted. Terminators and other
A terminator provides the crimping
force for the applicator installed within.
Applicators are built for specific terminal
and wire sizes and feed arrangements.

Crimp Tooling — A Critical Element
for a High Quality Crimp
The crimp tooling—the actual crimper
and anvil that are in contact with the
wire and insulation—is one of the
most important factors in meeting
crimp quality specifications. TE
Connectivity quality tooling is proven
through years of experience to
achieve superior performance. Four
aspects of the crimp tooling have the
maximum impact.
The connection designer selects a terminal
and crimp parameters that achieve the
desired reduction in Area Index.
1. Geometry and Associated
Tolerances
Terminals are designed to perform to
specification only when the final
crimp form is within a narrow range
of dimensions. Controlling critical
crimp dimensions is influenced by
many factors including:
• Wire size and material variation
• Terminal size and material variation
• Equipment condition
The final quality and consistency of a
crimp can never be any better than
the quality and consistency of the
tooling that is used. If other variations
could be eliminated, tooling can and
should be able to produce crimp
forms that are well within specified
tolerances. Also, variation from one
tooling set to another should be held
to a minimum. Crimp tooling features
that are well controlled and exhibit
excellent consistency from tooling set
to tooling set can result in shorter
setup time as well as more consistent
production results.
Proper crimper and anvil design
provide necessary clearances without
excessive tolerances that can lead to
flash and other crimping errors.
(a)
terminal is plastically deformed and
extruded to complete the
termination. The anvil experiences
some of the same conditions but to a
much lower level of severity.
Specific material characteristics
bearing on the crimp process include
the toughness to withstand the
shocks generated during crimping
and sufficient wear resistance to
maintain dimensional tolerances.
3. Surface condition
Surface condition can affect the
performance of the crimp tooling as
well as the longevity of service. A
hard, smooth surface improves
adhesive wear properties and, thus,
increases service life. The other
attribute that needs to be considered
is friction.
Friction is a contributing factor in
determining the final crimp form and
process characteristics. Low tooling
friction results in lower crimping force
and thus can influence crimp form as
well as tooling life. Consistent
frictional characteristics between
tooling sets reduces process
variation.
2. Material
(b)
Significant flash can be generated with
excessive anvil-to-crimper clearance, as
illustrated by nominal-design condition (a)
and +0.003 in over nominal condition (b).
The wire crimper and the anvil have
different functional demands. Both
have the need to withstand high loads
and moderate shock. However, the
wire crimper is in fact an aggressive
forming tool. It must withstand high
shear loading that is a result of
frictional loads generated as the
terminal barrel slides along the
crimper surfaces in the forming
process, and then as the barrel

A polished, lubricated crimper surface
reduces friction and the associated
material buildup.

4. Surface Treatment
A commonly accepted approach to
improved crimp tooling performance
and life has been to apply a surface
treatment to the crimp area. Applying
an appropriate surface treatment to the
wire crimper will have the most benefit
to crimp performance and tooling life.
No buildup of material is visible on a
chromium plated crimper surface after
100,000 terminations.
An example of an effective treatment is
chrome plating. Chrome plating has a
very low coefficient of friction, so there
is less tendency for terminal distortion.
It also has greater surface hardness,
reducing adhesive wear. Finally, the
plating enhances resistance to adhesion
and cold welding, so there is no buildup
of material transferred from the
terminal that can cause incorrect
crimps on subsequent operations.
Material buildup in the crimper
results in gross deformation of the
crimped terminal.
Determining Crimp Quality
Note significant buildup of material on
an unplated crimper surface after only
60,000 terminations.
Crimp height can
be measured using
a micrometer with
appropriately
shaped jaws.
The connection designer, having once
specified the wire and terminal type,
also defines the crimp parameters. The
critical characteristic is the area
reduction of the wire during the crimp.
A quality crimp must achieve the
required area reduction, without
inducing conditions, such as flash, overor under-crimp, or bending, which can
compromise the reliability of the
connection.
Beyond visual inspection, the traditional
test is pull-out force. This is a gross
measure of crimp quality, and may be
difficult to perform on a 100% basis in a
production environment.
Material buildup on the crimper results
in visible deformation of the outer
crimp surface in this example.
Crimp height can be tested with a
micrometer that has been fitted with
appropriately shaped jaws. More
effective is the TE Crimp Quality
Monitor (CQM), which can be
installed on the terminator to provide
real-time, 100% measurement.
Crimp force has also been used as a
measure, but by itself does not provide
the data required.
The TE Crimp Quality Monitor uses
sensors mounted on the terminator ram
to combine crimp force and ram position
in a calculation of crimp height on a realtime basis.
Driven by the requirements of
6-Sigma and other international quality
standards, TE has developed crimp
height measurement testing
technology, which provides
dependable, non-destructive, evaluation
of 100% of crimped terminals without
impact on production throughput.
Crimp height measurement is a well
established methodology and, in
combination with crimp force
measurement, is superior to destructive
methods, sampling methods, or
techniques that depend on crimp force
alone.

Quality Applicators — Making the Right Choice
End-Feed or Side-Feed —
A Terminal-Driven Decision
Feed Determined by the
Terminal Supply.
The two main classes of terminal feed are
side feed and end feed. This
determination depends on the terminal
geometry, stamping process, and other
factors in the terminal manufacture. In
both cases, the terminals are supplied in
a continuous strip, coiled on a reel.
In the side feed applicator, the applicator
feed strip moves perpendicular to the axis
of the individual terminals, from side to
side with respect to the operator.
End feed terminals move from the back of
the applicator toward the operator, barrel
first for manual wire insertion.
For side feed, where the terminals move
(typically) into the applicator from the
operator’s left to right, the terminals are
formed attached to a carrier strip that
includes feed holes spaced with the same
pitch as the terminals on the strip. The
axis of the terminals, i.e., the direction
that the wires are inserted for crimping, is
perpendicular to the feed direction, so
the terminals are parallel on the strip. As
part of the crimp process, the terminal is
cut free from the strip, which is
discarded.
For end feed, the terminals enter the
applicator from the rear and move
toward the operator, barrel end first. In
this case, the terminals are aligned with
the direction of motion, and have blank
metal between the front edge of one (the
crimp end) and the rear edge (the
trailing, terminal end) of the next. There
is no separate carrier. As part of the
crimping process, this small blank piece
of metal, or “slug,” is cut out and
discarded.
(a)
(b)
Side feed
terminals (a) are
made on a single
or double carrier
strip. End feed
terminals (b) are
often supplied
when the design
would use too
much metal or
have too great a
pitch if made as
side feed.
Pre-Feed or Post-Feed
In post-feed applicators, the terminal is
positioned for crimping after the operator
activates the switch. In pre-feed
applicators, the terminal is positioned prior
to crimping. This is particularly useful for
closed barrel terminals, so that the operator
can more easily insert the wire end.

Simply put, crimp height measurement is the best
non-destructive way to ensure meeting the
stringent mechanical and electrical properties of
the crimp. New easy to use, intuitive menus along
with enhanced monitoring and graphing lead the
improved feature set of the CQM II. Another
major enhancement is the ability to use CQM II
on non-TE terminators.
Basic Analysis Monitoring
Versatile: On-screen programmability allows quick, flexible job set-up.
Enhanced ability to support the use of USB peripherals such as: flash drives for
database backup, saving reports, and updating firmware. It also includes a full
library of USB printers for easy printing of the many graph and report options.
Precise: Crimp height measurements are repeatable to within 0.12mm
(0.0005”) for every crimp analyzed. CQM II is the only crimp monitoring
system that offers continuous Crimp Height analysis for every crimp produced.
Five different analysis methods monitor the process to the fullest extent. This
ensures quality crimps are produced and faulty crimps are detected.
Crimp Height Entry
Convenient: Setup is simple and fast. Only a few parameters need to be set
to get the system up and running. All functions are controlled through the
touch screen, with an intuitive easy to use graphical interface. The system
walks you through all the required steps to start production. CQM II has more
choices to observe and monitor the crimping process than ever before.
Analysis Methods
The five analysis methods can be used individually or in combination
to provide the most flexible and complete coverage of the crimping process.
Crimp Height: The crimp height is the measured height of the terminals crimp
barrel formed around the wire. Crimps are analyzed to be within the set
tolerance zone.
Production Crimp Height
Work Index: The work index is a value that is used to compare the relative
position of a specified section of the crimp curve that occurs while the wire
and terminal are compressed. Crimps are compared to historical data to
determine pass/fail. The work index is a dimensionless value.
Peak Force: The peak force is the maximum force reading that occurs during
the crimp, minus the idle force reading. Crimps are compared to historical data
to determine pass/fail. The peak force is a relative value.
Point-to-Point (P2P): A series of points are established along the crimp curve
in the P2P analysis. During production each point is compared to its upper and
lower control limits, and if no points are out of their limits the analysis method
considers the crimp to be a PASS crimp.
FFT
Fast Fourier Transform (FFT): The FFT analysis method converts the force
profile into its component frequencies. It computes mean and standard
deviation for each of the lowest 32 frequencies from the learn crimps updates
the mean and standard deviation with each good crimp. If 4 or more
frequencies are outside the tolerance limits, the crimp status is FAIL.
Otherwise the crimp status is PASS.

Technical Tips
Feed is Critical
Misfeeds are the most common
cause of production downtime.
Over- or under-feeding can result in
premature wear of the crimper,
because the terminal contacts the
crimper surface in unprotected
areas.
Tooling Alignment is Crucial
Incorrect tooling alignment can
mean rejects due to excessive flash
or terminals sticking in the crimper
and being damaged or bent. It also
can reduce tooling life, leading to
out-of-specification crimping and
premature tool failure.
A simple setup procedure, using
heavy paper such as that taken
from the terminal supply reel, can
ensure proper alignment of the
crimper to the anvil. This should be
performed on a periodic basis, or
whenever there are signs of
incorrect alignment.
The applicator must be capable of
repeatable feed distances, or both
tool life and crimp quality will be
compromised.
An over-fed terminal can scrape the entire
crimper surface.
Be certain that the feed is properly
set. Your user’s manual gives the
full procedure for feed adjustment.

Continuing Effective Crimp Performance
Maintenance Keeps You in
Production
It’s easy to overlook, but routine
greasing can be a factor in reducing
production downtime. Checking
tooling—inspecting crimpers and
anvils—before they break also will
support production continuity.
Correct Shut Height
Having all your terminators set to the
correct shut height facilitates quick
change from one terminator to
another. This straightforward
adjustment procedure calls for use of
a calibrated shut height gauge. If you
cannot perform this adjustment, ask
your TE field service person to do so.
Lubrication — A Simple Step to
Reliable Crimping
Just as with any machinery, lubrication
of the applicator reduces wear and
even protects against corrosion.
Specific use of contact lubricant on
terminals prevents the friction that can
lead to sticking in the crimper, bent
terminals, and premature crimper wear.
Transporting Applicators Safely
Although they are manufactured to
withstand the impact of crimping,
crimpers and anvils do not fare well
when they contact each other. Such
contact can scrape the plating or the
crimping surface, causing a friction
point. Such a friction point can form
metal buildup, ultimately causing
reject crimps and even tool breakage.
Proper adjustment of shut height
facilitates quick change of applicators
into different terminators.
This problem is easily avoided. Always
leave a terminal in the crimp tooling
when moving the applicator from one
location to another. This allows the
terminal to receive any possible
contact and protects the tooling.
