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.
