New crimping pliers RXA007 for GOMAX QUADRA DN2

COLORNO, Italy – December 3, 2010 – The QUADRA DN2 thermoplastic capillary hose system, which is designed to substitute difficult to handle copper piping, is constantly improved in order to reach the highest quality level.

The success of the GOMAX® brand and Transfer Oil is the research of premium quality components. One of this largely used component are the manual pliers, specially designed to crimp the QUADRA DN2 assemblies to the exact crimping diameter.

With this news we are now introducing a new version of these pliers (new part number will be RXA007), which will substitute the old version (part number RXA003).

Main new features of the improved pliers are :

  • Stronger head, offering a better crimp.
  • Wider die opening for better access.
  • Redesigned ratchet release in order to avoid accidental release of the pliers.
  • Handle length Increased by 10% without modifying the total length of the tool. Increasing the length of the handle means less force needed to perform the crimping due to the better leverage.
  • New high friction inlay so that the tool can be pushed against hard surfaces in case of problem during the crimping operation. Although this new feature is very handy, we recommend to cut the hose right next to the ferrule and repeat the crimping operation in case the crimping operation has not been performed properly. In case of doubt, please refer to the crimping diameters specified (must be 7mm ± 0,1).
  • Broader shaped handle to spread load across palm. This will reduce the pressure on the hand.
  • Hand-shake position of palm and fingers for less wrist strain.

The new version of the pliers is already available and will automatically replace the current version as stocks run out.
