GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING!
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electrical shock, fire and / or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit: Cluttered benches or dark areas invite
accidents.
2. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gasses or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
3. Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to loose control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
4. Grounded tools must be plugged into an outlet properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. Never remove the
grounding prong or modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adaptor
plugs. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether
the outlet is properly grounded. If the tools should electrically malfunction or
break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away
from the user.
5. Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If
the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not
fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not change
the plug in any way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three wire
grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.
6. Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electrical shock if your
body is grounded.
7. Don’t expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power
tool will increase risk of electrical shock.
8. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool or pull the plug
from an outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of
electrical shock.

5
P/N 50098190 Rev. 2/19/09
9. When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord
marked “W-A” or “W”. These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the
risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
10. Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of
drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
11. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair.
Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
12. Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off before plugging in. Carrying
tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in tools with the switch on invites
accidents.
13. Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or
a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal
injury.
14. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper
footing and balances enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
15. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate
conditions.
TOOL USE AND CARE
16. Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a
stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
17. Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool
will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
18. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
19. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventative
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
20. Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools
are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
21. Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “Do not use” until
repaired.

P/N 50098190 Rev. 2/19/09
22. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and
any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained tools.
23. Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your
model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool, may become hazardous
when used on another tool.
SERVICE
24. Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service
or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of
injury.
25. When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow
instructions in the Maintenance section of this manual. Use of unauthorized
parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of electric
shock or injury.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection
provided by the equipment may be impaired.

P/N 50098190 Rev. 2/19/09
TIPS FOR MAKING A GOOD CAP / CRIMP
A good capping / crimping is obtained when the proper combination of aluminum seals,
stoppers and unit settings is achieved. A crimped stopper and seal should be tight on
the bottle or vial and should not be able to be twisted or difficult to twist. The aluminum
seal may appear slightly domed, but should not appear deformed.
The buttons and lights on the top of the unit, allow a user to adjust the tightness of the
crimp. Advancing the lights to the YELLOW side will produce a looser crimp, while
advancing the lights towards the RED side will produce a tighter crimp. Adjusting the
unit buttons and lights to the single GREEN light will put the unit in the center of its
overall crimping range.
When starting off with a new unit, crimp head, seals and stoppers, the center GREEN
light setting may not be the best starting setting for all seal and stopper sizes.
When working with larger seals and stoppers, especially 20mm sizes, a beginning
setting more into the YELLOW area is recommended.
When working with smaller seals and stoppers, especially 8mm sizes, a beginning
setting more in the RED area is recommended.
