Porta-TAC Series


Tri-Star Technologies Porta-TAC Crimper is a 39 lb., self-contained magazine fed, portable crimper. The Porta-TAC is a versatile tool that can accommodate almost any screw machine type contact. Tool changes are easy and quick, usually taking less than 2 minutes. The crimp head utilizes indenters meeting Mil-C-M22520/7 spec. All functions of the Port-TAC are automatic and are controlled and monitored by an on-board PLC. The Porta-TAC is a highly versatile tool that can be utilized in a number of ways: because of its speed it can be a high volume, first end crimper, or because of its fast tool changeover capability, it can be used for second-end operations.
