  • Minimal material used during setup
  • Integrated crimp force analysis CFA/CFA+
  • Easy to operate with TopTouch
  • Saving of machine and processing parameters
  • Good/bad sorting through elimination of bad crimps

The bt 712 BenchTop crimper is a precise semi-automatic crimper press with great functionality and big benefits to users, all at good value for the money.


The semiautomatic bt 712 BenchTop crimper is compelling for its modern technology and sets new standards in quality and speed. This all-purpose crimper accommodates the use of all common commercial crimping tools so individual crimps previously done manually can be processed on it with great precision. In terms of safety features, the bt 712 has a safety cover equipped with a dual-channel safety system (RCS).

The software (currently in 16 languages) can be operated from a small touch screen interface (TCI). The crimper has a service tool integrated with a data memory for storing up to 500 articles, for making backups and for uploading updates.

The crimp force analyzer that comes with the crimper detects good and bad wires reliably and provides a detailed description of errors.

Proven and useful options such as short cable supernatant, bad crimper cutter (BCC) and a teminal strip chopper can all be integrated in the crimper to boost efficiency and process quality even more.

Boosting daily production

A programmable stripper is available for the bt 712 as an option, that leaves virtually nothing to be desired. In situations where machine changeovers are frequent, the reliable and programmable DigiStripper greatly influences production output. Setup time is reduced by more than 50 percent merely through the use of programmed articles. Mechanical adjustments are cut to a minimum. There is also a dramatic reduction in the material used for setup.

Process control thanks to integrated stripping function

Functions like the cut pulled strands and zero cut have also been integrated along with the DigiStripper. Zero cut is needed especially when shielded cables or twisted conductors are processed. It ensures that the insertion position in the crimp is correct even if the insulation is pulled forward. A wayback operation ensures that no strands are pulled forward and enables even the most difficult insulation to be stripped reliably in a controlled process. The cycle time is ultra-short, being far less than one second for stripping and crimping. Snippets from stripping are collected in a scrap drawer. As an option, bad terminal cutter is available for use with the bt 712. This cutter can cut through terminals and thus allow reworking.

Optional stripper

With the programmable stripper unit, the device can be set up without mechanical adjustment. All required processing parameters can be set and saved in the TopTouch user software. The zero-cut and wayback for pull-off functions combine with a programmable cutting depth function to assure perfect stripping.

Optional bad crimp cutter

The bad crimp cutter cuts off any crimp detected as bad by the crimp force analyzer. You can program whether the cut is to go directly through the terminal or through the conductor. Cutting through the terminal involves less loss of cable length, allowing further use of the conductor.
