To the general public, the term handheld is synonymous with mobility. But, to assemblers of wire harnesses, the term also refers to tools that offer simplicity, reliability and accuracy.
“When it comes to hand tools for crimping wire, companies are most concerned with durability and ergonomics,” says Maria Haynes, product marketing lead specialist at Phoenix Contact. “Budget is also a factor. Companies know that good tools cost more but are worth it. These tools offer the assurance of high-quality crimps in wires used in all types of harnesses, equipment panels and control cabinets.”
