Hand-held convenience and performance

One hand is enough to hold, position and operate the tool with minimum upper-arm effort thanks to the light weight of the tool and the barycentric position of the mass. The ease of use allows the exact repetition of operations regardless of the operator’s experience.

18V Cordless hydraulic crimping tool

Cordless Alliance System



The next generation of Cembre cordless hydraulic tools represents a significantly advantageous evolution from current models.


Born of the renowned B51 type crimping tool, first into the market is the 63kN B 500, suitable for a wide range of connectors up to 300 sqmm using die sets common to the Cembre 50kN tooling range.



Main applications max size AWG

Copper lugs and splices

Insulated terminals

End sleeves

“C” sleeve connectors

500 MCM

250 MCM

250 MCM




New Li-Ion 18 V 4 Ah batteries offer a higher capacity than 14.4 V 3 Ah, while greater crimping speed and crimping force result from a revitalized hydraulic system with double speed action: a rapid approach of the dies to the connector then a slower, more powerful speed for crimping.


A maximum pressure sensor and security valve assure greater precision and repeatability of the pressure cycle and double the provision for operator safety.


The OLED display provides essential real time tool operating information data including:

  • Crimping force being  generated, for confirmation of adherence to norms and best practice
  • Battery power availability
  • Tool identification, LED state, reset, no. of operational and service crimping cycles
  • Tool service required to maintain optimum condition.


Designed with less weight and improved balance, B500 is easily manageable during the crimping process and, by the use of bi-component plastics, has a shell with high resistance to wear and damage.


Rubber grip inserts, low noise and minimal vibration aid operator comfort while additional convenience and safety are provided by LED lighting of the working area.


Crimping cycle data (upto 200,000 events) is automatically stored on a memory card for transfer to PC by USB interface.
