  • Patent number: 9502785
    Abstract: An electrical terminal is disclosed having a crimp barrel. The crimp barrel has a base; and opposing side walls extending from the base and each has an opposing end region. The opposing side walls have a conductor receiving region in which the sidewalls have an F-crimp when crimped to stripped conductors of a wire; a wire insulation receiving region for receiving an insulation covered portion of the wire; and a transition region positioned between the conductor receiving region, and the wire insulation receiving region. The opposing end regions in the transition region are overlapped in the circumferential direction when crimped to surround the wire.

  • Patent number: 9397410
    Abstract: An electrical terminal (10) having an electrical contact (18) and a crimp barrel (20) configured to be crimped around an end of a wire. The crimp barrel (20) includes a base (22) and opposing side walls (24) that define an opening (25) of the crimp barrel (20). The side walls (24) extend outwardly from the base (22) to ends (50) and include base segments (52) and end segments (54). A sealing wing (56) extends from the end of at least one of the side walls (24). The side walls (24) are configured to be folded over the wire when crimped such that a gap is defined between the end segment (54) and the base segment (52) of at least one of the side walls (24). The sealing wing (56) is configured to extend within the gap between the end segment (54) and the base segment (52) when the side walls (24) are crimped over the end of the wire.

  • Patent number: 9331446
    Abstract: Crimp tooling for crimping a crimp barrel of an electrical terminal to a wire includes an insulation crimper having an insulation crimp profile for crimping an insulation barrel segment of the crimp barrel to insulation of the wire, a wire crimper having a wire crimp profile for crimping a wire barrel segment of the crimp barrel to a conductor of the wire, and a transition crimper between the wire crimper and the insulation crimper. The transition crimper has a blended profile segueing from the wire crimp profile to the insulation crimp profile. The blended profile is used for crimping a transition segment of the crimp barrel between the insulation barrel segment and the wire barrel segment.
