Eaton Introduces Competitively Priced Variable Crimp Machine
Designed To Deliver Precision And Simplicity
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation’s Hydraulics Operations has introduced a new two-inch capacity hosecrimping machine that offers broad crimp capability and simplicity at a competitive price point. The new ET1290 variable crimp machine will handle virtually all Aeroquip® hose styles through 32 SAE100R15 hose and fittings. A dial indicator is used to control crimp diameter, providing a high degree of precision while maintaining the ability to adjust finished crimp diameter to meet application requirements.
“The ET1290 is a rugged, all-mechanical design with no delicate electronics,” said Product Manager Mike Henning. “We incorporated design features like a moving crimp ring and quick-change crimp cages to simplify the operator’s task and make the machine easy to use.”
The ET1290 incorporates the same method of setting target crimp diameter used in Eaton’s popular ET1280 crimp machine. It also uses the ET1295 master die cage and insert sets, as well as traditional ProCrimp® die cages.
Eaton offers the ET1290 in two configurations: a stand-mounted model that can be equipped with Eaton ET1295 insert set holders and a bench-mounted model intended for installation in Aeroquip Express Vans. A choice of 110-volt, 1.5 HP or 220-volt, 3 HP electric power units is offered for both models.
