Bench-Top Press Terminates Large Lug Products Up to 4 AWG

TM-4000™ Universal Crimp Press

The new, industry-standard TM-4000™ Universal Crimp Press for bench-top crimping provides 3.5 tons of crimp force to terminate large lug products up to 4 AWG.  It provides an effective method of applying a wide range of side- and rear-feed terminals to heavy-gauge wires.  Designed for mid-volume, semi-automatic bench-top operations, the TM-4000 is an inexpensive, electrically controlled, direct-drive press that lowers overall applied costs and protects investment in terminal and wire products.

The TM-4000™ Universal Crimp Press is the only industry standard, bench-top press on the market that terminates large lug products up to 4 AWG, resulting in lower overall applied costs

The Molex TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press provides an effective method of applying a wide range of side- and rear-feed terminals to large lug products.  The TM-4000 press is an inexpensive, electrically controlled, direct-drive press designed for mid-volume, semi-automatic bench-top operations.

The industry standard TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press will accept the most common industry-standard applicators in the market place.  In addition, this crimp press accepts any Molex applicator, including air-feed applicators that process terminals mounted on Mylar tape.  This flexibility reduces tooling costs and provides production flexibility.

The Molex TM-4000 Universal Crimp Press can be used with the Molex Tape Crimp Module.  This will allow crimping Molex tape-mounted terminals with the use of the current ATP-201 and ATP-301 crimping die sets.  The Molex Tape Crimp Module has replaced the current Molex ATP-201 press and the Molex ATP-301 press.
