The speed adjustment option is designed for sensitive materials or components requiring slower deformation speed than standard.
The crimping speed can be adjusted to give time for material to flow and deform in demanding fittings and other sensitive crimps and materials. The speed can be adjusted steplessly as slow as 0,1 mm/s, but machine can also be operated with normal speed.
The speed adjustment option is available for all Finn-Power FP- and KC-series machines.
In addition to speed adjustment option there is a standard ICC feature which enables adjustment of time when changing from closing speed to crimping speed.
Typical applications where slower crimping speed is required to ensure proper material deformation:
Ultra-high pressure hoses, Titanium fittings, Electrical insulators, Other sensitive materials
