Magnetic Pulse Crimping

Magnetic Pulse Crimping or MPC, is a contact-less process using Lorentz forces to crimp a wide variety of materials of different shapes and sizes. Magnetic Pulse Crimping is a technical alternative to mechanical processes. Using the same principles as Magnetic Pulse Forming and Welding, our MP Crimping system can shrink elements – enabling new designs with extreme mechanical properties.

The science

Not limited to soft alloy structures, MPC allows high-strength steel parts to be processed. In fact, MPC enables a wide range of assemblies, including metal to polymer, composite, ceramic, cast metal, or glass. All of which can be achieved without the need for adhesives, riveting and welding.

For cable crimping applications, zero clearness and maximum contact area provide higher conductivity, thermal transfer and heat-shock resistance.

Competitive advantages of MPC
    Uses low amounts of energy. No grease, oils or fumes
    Optimizes component thicknesses, resulting in weight and cost savings. Improved longevity of electrical connections resulting in less down time, less maintenance
    Reduced resistivity. Improved tensile strength. Higher compression eliminates air gaps between strands. Use with dissimilar metals
    Ability to compress almost any tubular copper or aluminum part. Accepts blanks with a wide range of tolerance. Excellent repeatability. Can replace ultrasonic welding or mechanical crimp for cables. Quick change over, resulting in time savingsAccommodates wide range of wire sizes, in excess of 300 sq
