Greaseless Crimpers

HAW carries stock of greased hose hydraulic crimping machines, and can order greaseless models from Uniflex.

Greaseless hose crimping tools require less maintenance than grease crimpers and are ideal for environments where cleanliness and hygiene of the hose is essential.

Unlike the UG range, which is held ex-stock for immediate distribution, the greaseless hydraulic crimping tool turnaround time from order to delivery is between 4 and 6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a hydraulic crimp?

This is a tool that’s used to connect the ends of hydraulic hoses or pipes, in the assembly of hydraulic hoses.

How do I choose a crimper?

It’s important to choose the right crimper, to ensure a tight connection in your hydraulic hose, without leaks. Select a crimper based on the size (diameter) of the hose you’re using. Contact our experts to identify your ideal crimper.

What are the different types of crimping tools?

Crimpers are either hydraulic or mechanical. Hydraulic crimpers use hydraulic fluid power to crimp a hose (better for crimping larger, industrial or mining hoses). Mechanical crimpers use physical force to operate.
