Elpress AlCu terminals for Al conductors are made of solid material.
We produce the terminals with friction welding, which means that aluminium is joined with copper. This is done when aluminium is rotated towards copper under pressure and it is the method that provides the best bond between Al and Cu. We produce AlCu terminals of type AKK, AKS and AKP, but also largely customised terminals (also larger than 1200 mm2).
The AlCu terminals are marked with logotype, conductor area for stranded and solid conductors and reference to round crimping tool and crimping tool in the Elpress product range. On the through connectors, a tool reference is also given for hexagonal crimping of copper.
When an adequate crimping is done with the right tool, Elpress' dies makes an impression on the sleeve so that all connections can be checked afterwards.
In the tools, there is a built-in full closure system that ensures that the entire crimping process is completed - a prerequisite for professional and quality-assured work. When crimping, two crimps are always done on the Al part and normally 1-2 crimps on the Cu part. Check the number of crimps recommended on the package label before crimping is done.
Upon requests for variants in hole arrangement, the size of the connection flag and the like, we make variants of cable clips. Read more on our page about Consulting.
Used for connection of Al conductors for apparatus outlets and busbars of Cu.Two crimps are needed - For crimp sequence, see image.

Transition joints from stranded Al conductors to solid Cu conductors 10 mm² / 8 AWG (e.g. Excel, Excelett). Two crimps are needed for both Al (crimp sequence see image) and Cu.
Connector from Al conductor to Cu conductor.Stranded/solid Al conductors, stranded/multi-stranded Cu conductors. For multi-stranded Cu conductors, contact crimping using the Dual system is recommended.Two crimps are required for Al (see image) normally one for Cu.When hexagonally crimping the Cu part, the dies are placed between the marking groove and the outer edge.
Used for splicing Al conductors and Cu conductors Stranded Al conductors, stranded/flexible Cu conductors. For multi-stranded Cu conductors, contact crimping using the Dual system is recommended.Two crimps are needed for Al (see image).When crimping the Al part, use matrix 13P37M and punch 13P37D, no matrix holder is needed.When crimping the Cu part, place the dies between the marking on the sleeve and the edge of the Cu part.
System Elpress symbolises Elpress’ guiding principles of safety and quality. These principles are reflected in our certified solutions, training courses and preventive maintenance in the form of service.
