Flaring tool for Heliflex cable HCA 118-50 to 400-50


Flaring tools for mounting connectors on coaxial cables

SPINNER has developed flaring tools fort installing connectors to air-dielectric corrugated copper tube cables. During flaring, the end of the outer conductor of the corrugated cable is flared and thereby connected to the connector back end. With the Flaring tool for Heliflex cable HCA 118-50 to 400-50 you achieve an optimum RF contact between the coaxial cable and the connector. The basic tools can be used for cable sizes ranging from 1 1/8” to 6 1/8” and rigid lines 52-120 by using additional inserts dies In addition, we offer dial gauges with probes that are adapted to the respective connector type for checking the mating face dimensions of connectors.

The SPINNER Flaring tool for Heliflex cable HCA 118-50 to 400-50 can be used for compatible cable types Air dielectric 1 1/8", Air dielectric 1 5/8", Air dielectric 3", Air dielectric 4". The suitable cable types are HCA 118-50, HCA 158-50, HCA 295-50, HCA 400-50. The entire housing is made of aluminum-alloy, the crank is made of plastic, the crank roller is made of hardened steel and the corresponding screws are made of stainless steel. The use of SPINNER flaring tools results in a significant reduction in assembly costs and consistent assembly quality.
