Uniflex launches the SL 3-75 industrial crimper

16 October, 2018

Uniflex has introduced a new production crimper for industrial hoses from DN 4 to DN 75 mm. It is suitable for hoses used in the food and pharmaceutical sectors as well as, for example, for the production of fire hoses.

With the SL 3-75 lubrication-free hydraulic crimper for the robust machine crimping of fittings, couplings, etc. at high-performance hoses, Uniflex again satisfies the most important practical requirements of the industry – optimum quality and highest economic efficiency due to a device that offers long life, ergonomics and suitability for a wide range of applications.

The crimp force of the SL 3-75 is 50 tons (500 KN). The opening path of the crimping dies is more than 55 mm, and the maximum crimping diameter is 88 mm. The design of the SL 3-75 is based on a proven concept – that of the Uniflex HM 200 hose crimper.

Compact design

Like its mobile model, the SL 3-75 for industrial use also stands out due to its compact, space-saving design, high user-friendliness and diversity. The new offering benefits from proven lubrication-free Uniflex slide bearing technology. This not only encourages low maintenance costs, but also considerably less crimp power loss and high stability as regards process and repeat accuracy.

Also, since the hose assemblies produced with the hydraulic crimpers from Uniflex are not soiled with lubricating grease during the crimping process, this makes them suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industries.

With a force of 50 t (500 KN), the machine can crimp hoses with diameters from DN 4 to DN 75 mm. Due to the large opening path of the jaws of 55 mm, it is also easy to crimp fittings with a flange – without removing the crimping dies. A machine opening with a diameter of 125 mm without crimping dies and maximum pressing dimensions of up to 88 mm also enables to process larger workpieces, for instance, in the production of fire hoses.
