Parker Karrykrimp and Karrykrimp 2 modular crimpers

Great improvement in the versatility of the Karrykrimp and Karrykrimp 2 Parker crimpers!

These Parker modular crimpers now offer the potential for portability OR stability (bench mount). Parker’s new modular design enables users to choose between the portability that Parker Karrykrimp crimpers have always offered, with the added option to bench mount these same crimp heads.

The modular design gives users the flexibility of a portable crimper, with the advantage of increased stability and productivity, when mounted to the bench power unit.

Parker Karrykrimp and Karrykrimp 2 crimper features:

  • A single crimping unit can be either portable or bench mounted
  • Increased height enables longer bent tube fittings to be crimped
  • Cylinder maintenance on the Karrykrimp 2 is now possible
  • Perfect for use in the field

Bench mount advantages:

  • Increased stability
  • Able to perform more crimps (productivity)
  • Designed to perform approximately 400 crimps per day (exceeding suggested production amount will reduce the life of all crimper components)
  • Faster cycle times on bench mounted units

Parker Parkrimp system

Both crimpers utilize the Parker Parkrimp system, which has several key advantages:

  • Parker’s exclusive Parkalign system features a positive-stop design that positions the fitting in the crimp die for a perfect crimp every time. Parkalign benefits operators by enabling them to “feel” that the hose is in the right position to be crimped, as compared to “eyeballing” the proper position of the fitting in a variable crimper.
  • Bottom-loading design makes it much easier to manage long hose assemblies
  • Parkrimp crimp dies are linked together to prevent segments from being misplaced or mismatched.
  • Crimp dies are also color coded by size, making identification easy and reducing set-up time.
