DMC is dedicated to serving the connector tooling needs of the electronics industry. we, therefore, top off our product package with a wide variety of installing and removal tools.
Although we supply both plastic and metal tools, we recommend the use of the metal tools because of their durability.
When used properly they are more cost effective in that they withstand thousands of contact insertion and removal cycles. The trend to all metals tools is being actively encouraged by most departments of the government.
DMC installing and removal tools are of proven high quality and reliability. in addition to the tools listed in these reference table, we have many more for other connector applications. please contact us for more details.DMC1155 general purpose insertion & removal tool kit

Qualified to Mil-DTL-22520/2*, the dmc afm8 is designed for most of the miniature and sub-miniature connector types that are so widely used in electronic systems. The afm8 meets the need for a miniature tool accommodating wire sizes 20 through 32 awg.
The AFM8 gives a mil-standard 8 impression crimp, which assures maximum tensile strength. The cycle controlled precision ratchet assures consistently accurate crimps every time. The tool frame has a built-in 8 step selector knob for ease in dialing the correct crimp depth setting for the wire being used.
Positioners adapt the tool frame to a particular application. The data plate on each positioner designates which contacts the positioner accommodates for its wire size and indicates selector position. The positioner is easily removed and changed.
Periodic gaging is recommended to insure accurate calibration. This is easily accomplished with the m22520/3-1 “go/no-go” gage (dmc part no. G125) on sel setting #8. The afm8 is 6 3/4" in length and weighs approximately 10 oz.
Other than keeping the tool clean and properly stored when not in use, no operator maintenance is required. Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here.
The DMC274 tool kit (pictured right) contains the AFM8 tool frame, tool gage, and all mil-spec positioners. Also included in the dmc274 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart.

Qalified to mil-dtl-22520/7*, the DMC MH860 is a recent addition to the military specification. It was developed to meet the demonstrated need for supporting the majority of electrical systems with one versatile crimp tool frame.
The mh860 accepts the entire middle wire range of 16 through 28 awg, with positioners which adapt it to virtually all applications consistent with others in the mil-dtl-22520 family.
Pneumatic versions of this tool can be found here.
The dmc123 tool kit contains the mh860 tool frame, tool gauge, and all mil-spec positioners.
Also included in the dmc123 are tool instruction sheets and a tool selection chart.

MIL-C-28840 connectors were developed for the navy, for use with jacketed cable in shipboard applications. They are a high density circular connector series utilizing a high shock threaded coupling system with front release crimped contacts.
For these connectors dmc has added a new crimping tool to its range, the M22520/34-01 and other tools as follows:

The DMC HX4 and HX3 series crimp tools feature a system of interchangeable dies which eliminate the need of separate fixed die crimp tools for each and every different application. Many maintenance and manufacturing concerns have standardized on one of these models, thus eliminating the cost associated with maintaining and calibrating bulky inventories of single purpose tools.
Tremendous flexibility and cost advantages exist with this crimping system due to the wide variety of interchangeable dies which are available for these tool frames. As new requirements evolve, a new set
of dies is all that’s required to meet the demand. A truly modern concept which will not require major change with time…only simple additions.
Crimping dies are snapped into the tool frame and retained in place by internal spring clips. They may be permanently secured, if desired, by driving a roll pin into the holes provided.
The tool frames are equipped with a positive ratchet assembly which controls complete handle movement in both directions.Hexagonal crimp dies are available in a variety of combinations having single, double, and even triple cavity design. These dies accommodate most coaxial and biaxial connectors and contacts conforming to MIL-C-39012, MIL-C-39029, and numerous proprietary configurations. Other designs are available for coaxial connections requiring different termination techniques
