Some terminals have special design and the applicators have to be specially designed for them. This involves designing and manufacturing many unique parts. These applicators come under special category. Some of the special terminals are mentioned below:
|Double Carrier Terminal
These terminals have two carriers in the reel because the user wants the terminal to be straight when it comes on the anvil. For such applicators cutters for both the carriers have to be provided.
|Center Carrier Terminal
For some reason the manufacturers keep the carrier in the center. The design of parts for such terminal is different. Such an arrangement can be incorporated in any of the above mechanical designs of applicators.
|Plastic Insulated Terminal
These terminals have plastic insulation covered on them. These terminals are again available in rear and middle carrier also.
Some terminals are meant for joining two or more wires in line or parallel to each other. In such cases the body of the applicator itself is changed as per the feed of the terminal.
Some terminals are meant for making a splice joint. In this application a wire of aluminum or copper is crimped with the main wire. Here the requirement exact crimp height to get good results. This application is found in Motor Manufacturing.
|Flag Receptacle Terminal
Here the wing of the terminal goes into the slot and gets bent. Then the tab lock fixes it in position. Such an application is found in A/C motors. Special applicators are designed for this which has a floating terminal carrier.
There is a range of fuse terminal for which applicators have to be designed for special cutting and crimping arrangement.
|Spark Plug Terminal
Special toolings and applicators are to be made for spark plug terminal. Here the requirement is only connectivity and not compression.
