Essential Tools for Crimp Quality  
Crimp Cross Section Analysis
Cross Section Analysis has become an essential tool for crimp quality. Cross Section Analysis is used in quality labs for crimp validation and also on the plant floor for in process inspection. The speed of sample preparation to measurement makes it possible to use in real time quality analysis.

The ECS 3000 pictured includes sample preparation (cutting, grinding, polishing), imaging using high resolution digital microscopes and imaging software. X-Scan is a powerful crimp analysis software package with automatic crimp height, width and area measurements.

MX Series Crimp Monitors
The C&S MX crimp monitor series are designed to monitor crimp quality in real time.  Typical crimp defects such as high or low insulation cut and cut strands can be detected.  This advanced detection system can also detect less common defects such as stranding not encapsulated but laminated to the top of the crimp.
