New generation “Bilinear” cordless crimping tools

ND Series, Battery tools 18.0V - 2.0 Ah

New generation of hand-held cordless tools, characterised by a “Bilinear” mechanical design. 

Operator comfort and convenience are key factors in producing repeatedly consistent high integrity crimped joints. 
Cembre ‘nd’ bilinear tools have their mechanical centre of gravity nearest to the operator’s wrist to optimise the overall ergonomics of the tool and provide a wider support for the hand. 
Thus the innovative misalignment between the pump drive mechanism and the hydraulic system both reduce the torque generated on the operator’s wrist and best distribute the stresses acting on the hand.



Equipped with a Smart Release system which automatically retracts the ram at the end of the operating cycle.

“Smart Release Technology” is a new development by Cembre whereby an intelligent oil pressure release system stops the motor at the end of the crimping cycle. 
Automatic retraction of the ram only occurs when the operator releases the start button, this allows visual verification of the jaws to ensure that they have fully met prior to releasing. 
Similar tools with ‘standard’ automatic return do not permit this visual verification that full compression has taken place before releasing pressure.






The Electronic Pressure Sensor (EPS) guarantees the precision of the crimping operation, checking the actual value of pressure and informing the operator about possible errors.



Data recording and intelligent control allow complete verification of operational parameters

SMARTOOL technology enables the user to to store data from up to 200,000 cycles on the integrated memory card for transfer to a computer via a USB cable



New two-speed hydraulic system

On the new generation of tools, a dual speed hydraulic system has been implemented with the double concentric pumping system and interlocked spring, the original patented solution by Cembre.
Faster compression and greater crimping force result from the new two-speed hydraulic system: a high approach speed which automatically switches to a low crimping speed, ensuring optimal use of the available energy. 
New multifunction OLED display with touch button
The OLED display provides essential real time operating data, including:
  • crimping  force generated, thus verifying compliance with best practice 
  • battery charge status 
  • general operating information
  • the number of work cycles completed and remaining before recommended maintenance.



Equipped with Li-Ion 18 V-2Ah rechargeable high capacity batteries.

Fitted with a maximum pressure sensor for enhanced precision and repeatability of the maximum pressure cycle, and a pressure relief valve providing additional safety for the operator.  


Weight and balance have been reconfigured to yield improvements in handling and convenience. 

The more rigid structure of the bi-component plastic body provides greater mechanical protection while its 
rubber inserts boost operator safety and comfort. 
Quieter operation, illumination of the working area via LED lights and a minimum of vibration enhance the tool’s practicality.
