TM-3000™ Press System

The 0638017200 (120V AC version) and the 0638017300 (240V AC version) TM-3000™ Universal Press systems are economical, electrically operated, single-cycle and split cycle direct drive presses. They are designed to provide an effective method of applying a wide range of side-feed and rear-feed terminals to a pre-stripped discrete wire or cable. Both the TM-3000™ presses are suited for mid-volume semi-automatic operations. Production flexibility is obtained using interchangeable Molex FineAdjust™ or Molex Mini-Mac™ applicators and most Industry Standard Applicators. This press is designed to operate the Molex Crimp Tape Module (0640162000) for 2awg un-insulated and 4awg insulated Mylar tape product. These presses have a 135.80mm (5.346”) shut height, which is industry standard with a 30mm press stroke. These presses will complete one crimping cycle with each depression of the foot pedal and two depressions for split cycle. Safe operation is provided by two interlock switches that render the press inoperative if the safety guard is opened, removed, or if the hand cycle wrench is being used. These are 2.0 tons presses with the capability of crimping up to 8awg product (depending on the material of the connector). This press system comes standard with the air hook-up, terminal oiler, tool kit, led light, and a counter.


TM-4000™ Press System

The 0638017600 (240V AC version) TM-4000™ Universal Press system is an economical, electrically operated, single-cycle and split cycle direct drive press. If your facility does not have 240v hook-up, we offer a step up transformer (part number 0625002992). The step up transformer allows the Molex TM-4000™ press to plug into a standard 120v wall outlet. This press is designed to provide an effective method of applying a wide range of side-feed and rear-feed terminals to a pre-stripped discrete wire or cable. Both the TM-4000™ presses are suited for mid-volume semi-automatic operations. Production flexibility is obtained using interchangeable Molex FineAdjust™ or Molex Mini-Mac™ applicators and most Industrial Standard Applicators. This press is designed to operate the Molex Crimp Tape Module (0640162000) for 2awg un-insulated and 4awg insulated Mylar tape product. This press has a 135.80mm (5.346”) shut height, which is industry standard with a 30mm press stroke. This press will complete one crimping cycle with each depression of the foot pedal and two depressions for split cycle. Safe operation is provided by two interlock switches that render the press inoperative if the safety guard is opened, removed, or if the hand cycle wrench is being used. This is a 4.0 ton press with the capability of crimping up to 2awg un-insulated product depending on the material of the connector. This press system comes standard with the air hook-up, terminal oiler, tool kit, led light, and a counter.


TM-2000™ Press System (Replaced by TM-3000 / TM-4000)

This press system has been replaced by the Molex TM-3000™ press system, but is still supported and used in the field today. The TM-2000™ Universal Press is an electrically-operated, single-cycle flywheel press. It provides an effective method of applying a wide range of side-feed and rear-feed terminals to a pre-stripped discrete wire or cable. The TM-2000™ is suited to mid-volume semiautomatic operations. Production flexibility is obtained using interchangeable Molex FineAdjust™ or Molex Mini-Mac™ applicators and most Industrial Standard Applicators. This press has a 135.80mm (5.346”) shut height, which is the industry standard, with a 38.1mm press stroke. The TM-2000™ will complete one crimping cycle with each depression of the foot pedal. Safe operation is provided by an interlock switch that renders the press inoperative if the safety guard is removed. These are 2.0 tons presses with the capability of crimping up to 8awg product depending on the material of the connector.


TM-40™ and TM-42™ Press System (Replaced by TM-3000 / TM-4000)

This press system is still supported and used in the field today, although it has been replaced by the Molex TM-3000™ and Molex TM-4000™ press system, using the T2/Terminator Crimp Module (0638018500). The TM42™ Termination Machine is an electrically operated, single-cycle, flywheel press. It provides an effective method of terminating a wide range of Molex side-feed crimp terminals to pre-stripped discrete wire and cable. Production flexibility is obtained through the use of interchangeable modular terminator dies. The TM42™ is ideally suited for mid-volume, semiautomatic operation. The TM42™ will complete one crimping cycle with each depression of the foot pedal. Safe operation is provided by an interlock switch that renders the press inoperative if the safety guard is removed.


ATP-301™ Press System (Replaced by TM-3000 / TM-4000)

This ATP-301 press system has been replaced by the Molex TM-3000™ and TM-4000™ press systems with the Molex Crimp Tape Module (0640162000) installed into the press. This new Crimp Tape Module system accepts all of the ATP-301 die sets that are in the field today thereby reducing the need for a customer to purchase replacement die sets. However, the ATP-301 is still supported used in the field today. The ATP-301 Air Tape Press is an electrically controlled, air powered termination machine. It provides an effective method for low cost, high quality terminations of tape carried products including insulated and un-insulated terminals, quick disconnects, and some types of splices with sizes from 26 through 8awg. The ATP-301 Air Tape Press will complete one crimping cycle with each depression of the foot pedal. A product is terminated and advanced to the next position for removal in approximately one second. Double spaced products can be processed with the flip of a switch.
