• MK3PNSP2 up to 4.8 mm strap width
The MK3PNSP2 tensioning tool achieves
unique levels of repeatability and accuracy
while maintaining a high application speed.
One further advantage is its low maintenance
handling. Cable ties are cut off flush at the
head, thus avoiding any excess tail and
ensuring safety in the workplace. The
MK3PNSP2 is suitable for applying cable
ties with a strap width of up to 4.8mm and
strap thickness of 1.5mm (all cable ties in
the T18 to T50 series).
MK3PNSP2.
It saves application time and is particularly
suitable for use in sensitive applications, or
in repetitive work such as cable harnessing.
Ergonomically designed, the cutting process
is pneumatically activated which helps to
prevent repetitive strain injury.
The tensioning force has 125 adjustable
settings from 45 to 210N.
Due to its high precision, the MK3PNSP2 is
suited for use in applications where quality
is critical.
Powered by compressed air at a pressure
of up to 6 bars, the MK3PNSP2 is most
beneficial in mass production environments,
whether on the assembly line or in cable
fabrication.

Pneumatic Tensioning Tool
Plastic Housing
• MK7P up to 4.8 mm strap width
The MK7P pneumatic bundling tool sets a
new benchmark for the rational application
of ties in the industrial production process.
Enhanced technology significantly improves
the application of cable ties.
Improved compressed air supply moves the
tensioning piston faster than in comparable
tools. Processing time is shortened and
the volume of connecting ties applied is
increased. At a time when cost implications
are crucial this tool offers genuine potential
for rationalisation.
MK7P.
Great attention was paid to ergonomic
design in the development of this tool. The
moulded handle prevents any slippage and
eliminates operator fatigue. The housing is
made of glass fibre reinforced plastic, which
is a lightweight but very tough material that
fully meets the high requirements found in
industry today.
Applying the cable ties is remarkably easy:
press the button and the cable tie is tensioned
and then automatically cut off flush with
the head. The smooth edge of the cut
prevents injuries.
The cut off end of the tie is ejected automatically. Production breaks normally required
to the cut off ties are thus eliminated.
The three level preset control is used to set
the tool tension. Fine adjustment is then
made with the wheel below the tension
control. An optionally available safety cap
prevents the tension setting being changed
by accident. This is particularly important
when bundling sensitive materials and
represents an important aspect in maintaining
process reliability.
This tool features a non slip, comfortable
grip, soft touch trigger, and a one touch
tensioning/cut off capability. The MK7P is
very lightweight making it very easy for
the operator to use on all cable ties from
2.5mm to 4.8mm wide.

Manual Tensioning Tool
for KR-Series
• KR6/8
The KR 6/8 tool has been specially developed
for reliably applying HellermannTyton cable
ties of the KR series (Chapter 1.5). In separate
operations the cable tie is tensioned, fixed
and then cut off directly at the head. The
tool can be quickly adapted to deal with
different tie widths (6mm and 8mm) simply
by exchanging the front plate.
The glass-fibre-reinforced locking pin of the
KR seal is mechanically crimped and leads
to plastic deformation of the tie ends. This
produces a vibration-proof permanent
connection.

Manual Cutting tool
for plastic ties
• CUTties
Features and Benefits
This tool allows the removal of ties installed
on electrical harnesses without damaging
wires and cables. It’s not necessary to accede
to the locking head. By using this tool, there
is no small waste that can be lost.
There are three tools according to the size
of the tie (T18 to T80). The colour of the
push rod allows their identification.
The CUTties is a precise cutting tool for plastic ties.
Application
The CUTties is a cutting tool for plastic ties,
which ensures the cut of the strap while
preserving wires and harnesses from being
damaged in the process.
Its use is recommended in many applications
for which wires and harnesses have a high
value added, in particular for railway and
aviation industries.
Bring the tool perpendiculary on the tie...
... apply a light pressure...
... press on the push rod by maintaining the pressure on the tool...
... release the push rod and remove the tool, the

How to use a cable tie tool (using an MK7 as an example)
1. Rough adjustment (1) depending on the type of cable tie, and set according to the details in the user instructions. Value is displayed in
the viewing window (2).
2. Use fine adjustment (3), if necessary, to set the desired value.
3. Lay cable tie around the bundle and guide strap end through the cable tie head (4). Tighten tie firmly enough so that one stroke of the
tool is enough to tension and cut off.
4. Push the tool with the open side of the tool head (5) over the free strap end and guide in the direction of the bundle until the tool head
butts on the tie head (4). 5. Pull manual lever through one or more times to the stop. Once the pre-selected tension is reached, the free
tie end is automatically cut off flush with the tie head.
Tool testing - Determination of tensions
To date, no generally applicable test method
has been established for this market. The
companies within the HellermannTyton
group work to the HT50 test criteria from
MAV Prüftechnik (Berlin) to determine the
tensile forces of the tools and to guarantee
the quality of the tools.
It is more difficult to test cable tie tools than
would appear at first glance. It is of supreme
importance to comply with a standardised
test procedure and consistent test conditions.
This means for example the size and not only
the cross-section of the cable ties, but also
the water content of the tie. A test using
different ties and/or different conditioning
can easily result in two different values.
In general, the speed of cut off, the position
of the tool with respect to the cable tie, the
condition of the wearing parts in the tool
and the state of the cable tie play a
fundamental role in the determination of
tensile forces.
Therefore we must point out that any values
we provide can only ever be regarded as
guide values for your information. The values cannot be transferred into practice like
for like.
In our user instructions, we specify an
adjustment range for each type of cable tie.
If tension values must be documented or
comply with a specification, we recommend
that you adjust them with the aid of the
MAV device. Also, as a guideline, half the
minimum holding strength of the cable tie
should be used as tensile force.
Date of issue: April 2011
The minimum tensile strength (also referred
to as minimum unlocking strength) is the
least force which the cable tie can withstand before it tears or stretches (see also
determination of minimum tensile strength
on page 35).This strength is determined
using a threaded tie, hence the following
formula should be used for guidance as to
the correct tensile force of the tool:
Min. tensile strength
= rec. tensile force
2
Example:
225 N min. tensile strength
T50R =
2
225 N 112.5 N rec. tensile force
=
2
according to formula

The tensile force can of course be adjusted
up or down, in line with the corresponding
application.
Please bear in mind that this statement
applies only to HellermannTyton products.
Cable ties from other manufacturers may
require a higher or lower force setting.
In order to secure the device after it has
been adjusted using the MAV device against
manipulation or unintentional maladjustment,
HellermannTyton offers an adjustment safety
cap (Art. No.: 110-07200 for MK7, MK7HT,
MK7P, MK9, MK9HT, MK9P) which you can
push onto the device after removing the

takes to remove).

and has no direct connection with the

stating a tolerance, cannot be confirmed.

The MK3PNSP2 is fixed onto the rail using an adapter. The cable tie (red) is clamped into
the jaw. The tool tightens the cable tie. The tension achieved at cut off is determined.
The tool could only be adjusted with the aid of several tests such that a specified value is
attained. This could for example be the value calculated previously using the guidance
formula.
