New RYCO Crimp Charts are now available online

This crimp chart supersedes all previous metric crimp chart versions and previously issued documentation regarding crimping dimensions. RYCO Rapid Numbers simplify the crimping process while reducing the risk of incorrectly fabricating a hose assembly due to operator error. RYCO Rapid Numbers should be used in conjunction with the corresponding crimper die colour specified herein for the corresponding hose and coupling combination. RYCO Rapid Numbers should only be used with RYCO R125 and R250 model crimpers in accordance with the respective crimper instruction documentation. Should the specified crimp dimension not be achieved using the corresponding RYCO Rapid Number setting, please contact RYCO Technical Department. Crimp dimensions should always be measured and checked using preferred methods outlined herein and as per associated RYCO literature. If a hose and coupling combination listed herein does not list assembly values in the crimp chart matrix, then that hose and coupling combination is an incompatible combination. Should you wish to confirm if a hose and coupling combination is valid, please check the latest version of this crimp chart at www.ryco.com.au or contact your nearest RYCO representative. ...

How to Safely Operate Crimping Machines

The RYCO Crimper Series are compact and efficient swaging machines, equally suitable for repair shop applications and high-volume production of hose assemblies.   The RYCO Safety Zone provides an increased margin of operational safety when using RYCO matched hose and fittings. That’s why this article aims to inform you on the safe use of crimping machines. Safety Zones RYCO crimping machines present very minimal risk to operators. As with any machine, there is a potential of risk to an operator if due care is not shown.   To minimise the chances of injury, Safety Zones must be identified and implemented around the crimp dies. The Safety Zones incorporate two areas, an Exclusion Zone, and a Caution Zone.   The Exclusion Zones, (the red shaded areas), represent areas where there is a direct risk of a crushing injury to the operator. Hands, tools and other items must be kept well clear of these areas during operation of the crimping machine. Regardless of the crimping machine make, type or design, body parts or foreign objects MUST not contact the crimping dies or ...
