CrimpTest-1 kN Bench-top Pull-tester

The Mecmesin CrimpTest-1 kN is a horizontal, motorised wire terminal tester, designed for ease of use, rapid throughput and high duty cycle operation. Rugged construction, simple controls and a clear display make this compact, benchtop unit an ideal quality checking instrument for wire terminal manufacturing equipment, right at the point of production.

Key Benefits

  • Repeatable testing, ensures accurate, consistent results every time
  • Easy-to-use, minimal training required
  • Ensures crimped joints are fit-for-purpose
  • Increased productivity, less production downtime
  • Eliminates the risk of repetitive strain injury
  • Improved understanding of the performance of crimping machines

The CrimpTest-1 kN is the ideal solution for testing to the following standards, to 1 kN:


  • ASTM B913 : Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Crimped Electrical Connections to 16-Gauge and Smaller Diameter Stranded and Solid Conductors
  • SAE AS39029, AS7928 : general specification for terminals, lug: splices, conductor: crimp style, copper
  • IEC 60352-2 : solderless crimped connections
  • BS 5G 178 (Part 1) : crimped joints for aircraft electrical cables and wires
  • DEF STAN 59-71 : crimped electrical connectors for copper conductors
  • ISO 1966 : crimped joints for aircraft electrical cables
  • NASA-STD-8739.4 : space applications, crimping, cabling and harnessing
