MOLEX 69002-5000

Molex TM-42 Terminating
The Molex TM-42 termination machine is an electronically operated, single cycle, flywheel press. It is designed to provide an
effective method of applying a wide range of Molex side feed crimp terminals to a pre-stripped discrete wire and cable. The
TM-42 also has the ability to terminate FFC and IDT connectors to ribbon cable. The TM-42 is designed for mid-volume, semiautomatic bench operation and cannot be operated if the safety guard is not properly in place. This press has the ability to be
mounted onto a wire processing system.
Production flexibility is obtained through the use of Molex interchangeable termination dies. These dies are inexpensive
because all of the adjustments for crimp height and terminal feed are located in the TM-42 press. These dies will only work in
the Molex TM-42 and will not work in the Molex TM-2000 press or any other industry standard press.
