What capacities are given on the crimping pliers?

The capacity information on our crimping pliers often shows only one number per crimp nest due to space constraints. The inscription on the pliers indicates the largest possible cross section to be processed. However, smaller cross sections can also be processed in the same die. You can find out from the catalogue, our website and the packaging which capacities can be crimped beyond the specification.

For example, the crimping pliers KNIPEX 97 32 240 for cable lugs and cable connectors come with the information 1.5 / 2.5 / 6 mm²,

while it is actually suitable for sizes 0.5 - 1.5 / 2.5 / 4 - 6 mm² .
