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.

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.

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 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

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.
