Miniature Adjustable Crimp Tools



Qualified to MIL-DTL-22520/2*,  the DMC AFM8 is designed for most of the miniature and sub-miniature connector types that are so widely used in electronic systems. The AFM8 meets the need for a miniature tool accommodating wire sizes 20 through  32 AWG.

The AFM8 gives a Mil-Standard 8 impression crimp, which assures maximum tensile strength. The cycle controlled precision ratchet assures consistently accurate crimps every time. The tool frame has a built-in 8 step selector knob for ease in dialing the correct crimp depth setting for the wire being used.

AFM8 IndentorsPositioners adapt the tool frame to a particular application. The data plate on each positioner designates which contacts the positioner accommodates for its wire size and indicates selector position. The positioner is easily removed and changed.

Periodic gaging is recommended to insure accurate calibration. This is easily accomplished with the M22520/3-1  “GO/NO-GO” gage (DMC part no. G125) on SEL setting #8. The AFM8 is 6 3/4" in length and weighs approximately 10 oz.

DMC274Other than keeping the tool clean and properly stored when not in use, no operator maintenance is required. Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here.

The DMC274 tool kit (pictured right) contains the AFM8 tool frame, tool gage, and all  mil-spec positioners. Also included in  the DMC274 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart.

* Change to SAE AS22520 in process consult DMC for status.

MH860Qalified to MIL-DTL-22520/7*, the DMC MH860 is a recent addition to the military specification. It was developed to meet the demonstrated need for supporting the majority of electrical systems with one versatile crimp tool frame.

The MH860 accepts the entire middle wire range of 16 through 28 AWG, with positioners which adapt it to virtually all applications consistent with others in the MIL-DTL-22520 family.

Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here.DMC123

The DMC123 tool kit contains the MH860 tool frame, tool gage, and all  mil-spec positioners.

Also included in  the DMC123 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart.

MIL-C-28840 connectors were developed for the Navy, for use with jacketed cable in shipboard applications. They are a high density circular connector series utilizing a high shock threaded coupling system with front release crimped contacts.

For these connectors DMC has added a new crimping tool to its range, the M22520/34-01 and other tools as follows:
