Spring Die
The spring die is a very usefull tool to help troubleshoot crimp monitor problems. The idea is to replace the crimping die with the spring die and make a teach-in. If the crimp monitor runs perfectly with the spring die one must conclude the problems being experienced are related to the crimping die. The spring die will produce very consistent repeatable force curves. Standard models are available for "mini die" applicators, 5.346 inch shut height with standard quick change base plate, and "Toyo type" applicators.
