ET5040 crimp machine: Eaton’s ET5040 programmable crimp machine is the newest addition to Eaton’s family of hose assembly equipment. The ET5040 is pre-programmed with all of Eaton’s hose and hose fitting crimp specifications, crimp profile details, and machine settings in order to crimp to the required specifications. In addition, the machine advises the assembler which hose fittings are approved for each hose part number, and the dies required for each hose part number enabling the operator to manufacture factory quality hose assemblies. Safety, improved ergonomics, increased hose size capability and ease of use were paramount with the design and development of the Eaton ET5040. The ET5040 includes state of the art crimp technology and electronics, utilizing touch screen operation with preloaded Eaton crimp specifications for virtually the entire portfolio of approved Eaton hose and flat crimp fitting combinations. The ET5040 is capable of crimping hoses with an inside diameter of up to 4” and can crimp a wide range of products including Eaton textile braid, wire braid and spiral hydraulic, thermoplastic, Teflon, air conditioning, and industrial hose constructions. Adjustable telescoping legs provide improved line of site, allowing operators to adjust the crimp head to a height level that is most convenient.  With pre-loaded crimp specifications and production intent capability, the ET5040 can be used for one-off assemblies or configured to run high volume production for any customer requirement. With just a touch of the screen, factory quality assemblies can be configured and built quickly and easily, resulting in increased throughput, improved delivery, and guaranteed quality.
