The HM 480 hose crimper combines high productivity with an ergonomic design and a long service life. The machine offers an opening stroke of more than 150 mm and an opening diameter of 380 mm (without dies). It can thus be used to crimp industrial hoses up to 8 in. with ANSI flanges and pipe fittings up to 12 in. without requiring removal of the dies. The fixed 6-o’clock die and the 150-mm-long bottom die make workpiece positioning easier. Apart from hydraulic hoses, the machine can be used to join reinforcing steel, steel cables, ropes, and insulators with forces up to 4,500 kN. The HM 480 is controlled through the proprietary C.2 control unit.
