Operating Instructions Establishing Crimp Settings The color coded collar and Crimp adjustment knob above the pusher is designed to easily adjust to the Aeroquip and Weath- erhead core products to determine the Crimp diameter for each combination of hose, fitting, and die cage (See below).
9 Simply turn the collar to the correct color to match the lay line on the hose, adjust the ring so that the correct size dot aligns with the correct size line on the collar and the Machine is set for the correct Crimp . Load the correct Crimp die based on the Crimp die chart attached to the Machine , and the Machine is ready to Crimp . The micrometer section can be used to Crimp other products not captured on the 3 primary collar settings, based on Crimp target settings available in PowerSource.
