ToolingShuttle 61

Mobile Quick-Change Unit for CrimpCenter Series

The ToolingShuttle 61 combines the crimp applicator (tooling), terminal reel and paper winder into one mobile quick-change unit for CrimpCenter 6-series fully automatic crimping machines. The ToolingShuttle 61 allows the operator to exchange all three elements simultaneously, which significantly reduces changeover time.

  • Changeover in less than 30 seconds
  • For all standard crimp applicators (tooling)
  • Retrofittable for all CrimpCenter models
  • Simple and quick handling without additional tools
  • Modular concept: expand system according to your requirements

The ToolingShuttle 61 can be prepared for the next job at an external workstation while the machine is producing, thereby reducing machine downtime to a minimum. Once in position the applicator is quickly moved from the ToolingShuttle and secured into the crimping station. A magnetic ram holder fixes the ram of the applicator in top position for easier insertion of the applicator into the press and to protect the applicator tooling when it is not in use.

The ToolingShuttle 61 accepts all standard crimping tools (mini-style applicators), so existing applicators can be easily integrated.


  • ShuttleRack: mobile storage rack for up to 5 ToolingShuttle 61 units
  • Automatic identification of individual ToolingShuttle 61 units with barcode

Plug & Crimp™ Technology
