Crimpers & Crimping

Hydraulic hose crimpers (also known as swagers or swaging presses) are used to permanently assemble crimp couplings onto a hydraulic hose. Hydraulic operated crimping machines are generally quite simple in both design and construction. The great majority of crimp heads are single acting hydraulic cylinders which open and close mechanical dies through various sliding faces. These cylinders move in two directions, both forwards and backwards, but are usually only powered in the forward direction. However, today crimpers have become an extremely well-engineered piece of equipment, which is critical to the safety of hydraulic hose and coupling assembly. RYCO have a full range of crimpers including mobile, workshop and production series. All of which are efficient swaging machines, equally suitable for repair shop applications and high-volume production of hose assemblies. Several of RYCO series crimpers are designed to handle large jobs with speed and efficiency. These full-scale production units offer: High speed for increased productivity Large die openings to allow small and large hose assemblies to pass through easily A wide range of available die sets High strength A number of ...

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 ...
