Ocean Applicator Series
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Feb. 15, 2012 – Crimping standards continue to rise to higher levels of quality and repeatability. Taking customer input and market demands into consideration, TE Connectivity (TE) has created the new Ocean Applicator series to meet those higher demands and to take terminal crimping to a new level.
By consolidating our past applicator offering, TE was able to provide design consistency and tooling standardization to the market. One of the resulting benefits to customers of this consolidation is flexibility in the choice of feeding options: new and improved mechanical and pneumatic feeds along with the innovative and precise servo feed option. The new Ocean Applicator series design also allows customers to perform field upgrades to system III and Smart Applicator technology. It provides an upgrade path for terminal intelligence that allows the machine to obtain set-up features as the applicator is upgraded.
- One applicator platform – modular family design
- Two ram interface styles
- Three interchangeable feed options
(mechanical, pneumatic or servo)
- Smart Applicator Integration

Wilmington, Mass. - July 17, 2012 - Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking TE Connectivity's innovative Ocean series of lead wire applicators. The Ocean applicator combines the best features of TE's HDM, HDI and System III applicators while adding several customer-suggested enhancements.
The Ocean series of applicators utilizes one applicator platform and a modular family design with two ram interface styles. The same wire crimper, insulation crimper and anvil are used on both styles. All Ocean series applicators have three interchangeable feed options: mechanical, pneumatic and servo. The mechanical feed design keeps the roller and cam in constant contact for a smooth and accurate transition through each feed cycle. The mechanical feed design also features easily accessible micro adjustments for the forward and back stroke, allowing for precise and repeatable terminal location in the crimp area.
The pneumatic feed is self-actuated by the applicator and does not require a terminator air valve, providing both increased flexibility and higher crimp precision. The Servo feed type is completely independent of the ram stroke and has a built in data module that stores the crimping parameters and system confirmation for all the terminals it can crimp.
The Ocean series provides an upgrade path for terminal intelligence that allows the machine to acquire set-up features as the applicator is upgraded, and also permits customers to perform field upgrades to System III and Smart Applicator technology.
