Standard Fittings

We manufacture and stock a wide range of standard mechanical and electrical-mechanical compression fittings and tools. From wire rope terminations to electrical cable splices, Nicopress® can provide fittings per your specifications. Contact our customer service specialists for assistance to select the right connection system – both tools and fittings – to meet your needs. If your project requires custom engineering, contact us.

Custom Fittings

We thrive on designing specialized connections which are both mechanical and electrical-mechanical. We specialize in engineering difficult and unique fitting configurations and attaching them to ferrous, non-ferrous and synthetic wires, strands and cables to achieve maximum conductivity and assembly tensile strength. Our R&D and engineering department have the right tools available, from 3-D modeling to non-linear FEA analysis, to ensure the connection solution is engineered in a timely and efficient manner. You specify the final fitting dimensions and tolerances of the cable assembly and we will suggest either a standard item or quote a custom engineered solution.

Tool Selection

Nicopress® offers proven mechanical and electro-mechanical connectivity systems and solutions. Laboratory and field-tested for dependability, our tools are manufactured specifically for use with Nicopress® connectors. We have a variety of tools for all your crimping and compression needs, including manual, battery-powered, hydraulic and pneumatic. Nicopress® tools are recognized the world over by their “safety orange” colored handles.

Certified Testing

Nicopress® has the capabilities to test everything we build. All tensile testing and measurement equipment is certified and calibrated utilizing reference standards traceable to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST), in accordance with ISO 10012 and MIL-STD-45662A.

Cable assemblies can be 100% proof loaded to a percentage of ultimate break strength and sampled for destructive testing. Tensile testing capabilities available up to 60,000 lbs. Conductivity/resistance testing also is available.
