Title: CRIMP INDENTOR, CRIMPING TOOL AND METHOD OF PRODUCING A CRIMP INDENTOR
Abstract:
The present invention refers to a crimp indentor (100) for producing a crimp connection between an electrical conductor and a contact, wherein the crimp indentor (100) comprises a base unit (1 10) and a machining range (120), wherein the machining range (120) is configured to transmit crimping forces to the contact while producing the crimp connection, wherein the machining range (120) at least in parts comprises a ceramic surface. Further, the present invention refers to a method of producing a crimp indentor (100), wherein the crimp indentor (100) is configured to carry out a crimp connection between an electrical conductor and a contact, wherein a crimp indentor blank is provided. A base unit (1 10) and a machining range (120) are configured at the crimp indentor blank, wherein the machining range (120) is configured to transmit crimping forces to the contact while producing the crimp connection. Further, the machining range (120) at least in parts comprises a ceramic surface, wherein the ceramic surface is oriented to the machining range (120) in such a manner that the crimping forces occurring during the production of the crimp connection are transmitted to the contact via the ceramic surface.
