Access the PowerSource Crimp Specs tool at www.eatonpowersource.com/crimp-specs/.

The ET1187 machine is our most economical variable crimp machine to date. It boasts a broad crimp capability and “ease-of-use” dial. This machine is designed to easily adjust to Eaton’s core products. It’s as simple as turning the collar to the correct color to match the lay line on the hose, adjust the ring so that the correct size dot aligns with the correct size line on the collar and the machine is set for the proper crimp. Load the correct crimp die based on the crimp die chart attached to the machine, and the machine is ready to crimp. A version of the machine for Eaton Winner hose is also available.

The portable ET1000 crimp machine has four pump options and comes equipped with a stand pre-drilled for mounting to a workbench or table-top. This simple positive stop machine offers consistent crimping time after time with no operator adjustments required and is easily transported between job sites.

The FT1380 crimp machine crimps all your hose needs up to and including -20 4-wire spiral hose. The FT1380 is electronically controlled to give fast, accurate crimps the first time and every time you need a hose assembly. The electronic keypad is easy to adjust, with up to 10 programmable crimp settings. For hose styles and sizes used less frequently, simply enter the 3-digit target setting.

The T-420 is a versatile positive-stop machine ideal for your shop, factory, construction, and mine locations. Large capacity combined with lever-activated crimping gives you wide coverage and a quick and simple way to make factory-quality hose assemblies.

The FT1390 crimp machine is a stand-alone machine and will crimp up to 2" braided, 2” 4-wire spiral, and 2” 6-wire spiral hydraulic hose assemblies. It boasts a programmable electronic keypad with 10 presets. This keypad simplifies the hose crimping operation by allowing the machine operator to enter a predetermined setting for a specific hose type and size. The ten most often used crimp settings can be stored for one-touch retrieval. The machine will automatically crimp to the exact crimp diameter required for that hose type and size. The electronic crimp machine settings eliminate the need for spacers or shims in the crimping operation.

The ET4001 is ideal for factory, high-performance machine operations, construction, and mine locations. This machine offers the capabilities of crimping all the crimp-style hose ends through -32. With this coverage, this heavy-duty positive-stop crimper can handle all your crimping needs.

The ET5050 is designed for high industrial production and comes pre-programmed with all of Eaton’s hose and hose fitting crimp specifications, crimp profile details, and machine settings to crimp to Eaton’s specifications. It crimps up to 2” spiral, 2” braided, and 4” industrial in Eaton core hose products as well as a wide variety of specialty hose. The ET5050 crimp machine took on a new look in January. The updates were made in an effort to reduce lead times and pricing as the machine now ships directly from Uniflex in the Chicago suburbs.
