Hydrapower Dynamics supplies second King Crimper to W.E. Couplings

05 November, 2015

Hydrapower Dynamics, the UK distributor for Finnpower crimping and cutting machinery, has supplied a second 24” King Crimper to W.E. Couplings of Chorley in the North West of England. According to Hydrapower Dynamics, this makes W.E. Couplings the first company in the world to have both machines (1200 ton and 2000 tons) on one site.


W.E. Couplings can now offer a crimping diameter of up to 24”, and can crimp by diameter or by pressure. The company comments that it can therefore assure the total accuracy of the finished crimp, which is essential for product safety.

To ensure total satisfaction of product, W.E. Couplings’ managing director, Peter Hart, requested what he believes to be the most advanced crimping control system in the world, together with total connectivity of data transfer for online quality data monitoring. He said this has been achieved by sourcing Finnpower UC Control with Option 3 connectivity control.

This additional large investment of a second King Crimper has reportedly opened up new world markets for W.E. Couplings. Hart commented: “I would like to thank Frank Kirwan at Finnpower, Noel Chambers at Hydrapower Dynamics and all others involved in delivery and commissioning, as the transportation from Finland to meet a timed 50 ton mobile (specialist crane hire) was all completed in military-style precision with no hitches or time lost.” He added that within 24 hours of the machine being commissioned an order was received for 3 x 14", 10 metre, 16 bar oil hose assemblies.

W.E. Couplings holds in stock water hose up to 24" bore and oil hose to 18" bore. The value of the company’s stock is continually increasing towards a target value of over £1 million.
