Crimping tools are an essential tool for making twisted pair connectors. Because wire clamps generally have three functions of stripping, tangential and crimping, they should also be considered from these aspects when identifying their quality. The quality of the two metal blades used for tanging must be good to ensure that the cut ports are flat and burr-free. At the same time, the distance between the two metal blades should be moderate: when too large, the rubber of the twisted pair is not easily peeled off, and when it is too small, the cable is easily cut. The outline of the crimping end should match the crystal head. It is best to prepare a standard crystal head when purchasing. The crystal head should fit very well after the crimping port, and the 8 metal crimping teeth on the clamp and the reinforcing head on the other side must accurately match the crystal head. Correspondingly, no misplacement can occur. Finally, try to press a connector to see if the connection between the twisted pair and the crystal head is secure. The steel port of the crimping tool is better, otherwise the blade is easy to produce a gap, and the crimping teeth are also easily deformed. Especially after the deformation of the crimping teeth, the clamp is scrapped.
Good tools will make every network engineer even more powerful. Quickly mastering the right tools means you can easily do complex work. The crimping tool is not good, not only wastes material, but also brings hidden dangers to the follow-up work, such as the crystal head being crushed, and the network cable and the crystal head reed are in poor contact. As we usually talk about, cheap crimping tools are too difficult to use. The pressure is not at all, and it will be anxious to use. With a handy tool, you can concentrate on your work.
For a network administrator, the most common tool for building and maintaining a network is a crimping tool. It can do three things: trimming, stripping and crimping. The improper selection of crimping tools not only wastes materials, but also brings hidden dangers to subsequent work. For example, when making a network cable, it is easy to damage the crystal head, and the network cable and the crystal head are in poor contact. In this article, I will introduce some tips and methods for purchasing crimping tools.
