Tools for Cable Cutting & Cable Crimping

Cable cutting and crimping tools manufactured by Cembre are used to cut or crimp most types of low, medium and high voltage cables including EPR, PILC, XLPE, PVC insulated cables with copper or aluminium conductors, lead sheath, steel wire armour (SWA) or wire braid.

Cembre tools are used for cutting and crimping underground cables or overhead lines to support the installation of LV-HV power cables and conductors into switchgear, substations, transmission and distribution networks – tools are the highest quality for the compression of connectors, lugs and joints in high voltage electrical cable installations in both indoor and outdoor locations from LV up to 33kV.

Secure & Reliable Cable Connections with Cembre

Cembre tools provide a secure and reliable integrated cable crimping and electrical connection system – as a leading manufacturer that develops and manufactures systems for electrical connections their includes Connectors, Dies Sets & Tools.

The battery tools by Cembre are designed with crimping dies and high-quality connectors according to the main international standards.

Cembre HT131-C Cable Crimping Tool | the industry leading and most extensively used hydraulic crimping tool for the connection and compression of electrical connectors, lugs and splices up to 400sqmm. This new model, self contained, robust and sturdy, will accept all semi-circular slotted dies, common to most 130 kN tools. The Cembre HT131-C tool features a double speed action: a fast advancing speed for rapid approach of the dies to the connector and a slower more powerful speed for crimping. For ease of operation and comfort of the operator the tool head can be fully rotated through 180 degrees. The built-in safety valve will by-pass the oil supply when the maximum pressure is reached, and the pressure release system can easily be operated at any stage of compression.
