Hand tool actuator


The hand tool actuator is a universal assistance for any manual hand tool. The hand tool is operated by the lever. This makes it easy to work for longer periods with hand tools.

TT Crimp Press

TT Crimp Press

The TT Crimping Press is available either in semi-automatic (for bench-top use) configuration or in full automatic (integrated into a cut and strip machine) configuration. The standard stroke is 40 mm, but other different strokes are available upon request. The 135.8 mm ± 0.02 mm crimping height allows the TT to accept all the mini-style applicators fitted with the standard T-coupling. A proprietary safety cover guarantees the operator a perfect view of the crimping zone while enjoying complete protection from any hazard. Mecal’s own CFA crimp force analyser can be fitted as an option.

Z+F Ferrules


Wire end ferrules create first-class, solderless connections, ensuring precise, long-term operational reliability.

Zoller + Fröhlich is the inventor of ferrules with plastic collars that are used for solderless connections in cable assemblies throughout the world. Thonauer supplies the entire range. We supply ferrules with or without plastic collars, from 0.14 to 150 mm² in different colors and different termination lengths, assortment boxes, ring or spade lugs, blade receptacles, etc. Our range also includes taped or loose ferrules.

Z + F is the only company in the world to have had all their insulated ferrules UL-certified  since 2012, and CSA-US certified since 2002. This not only applies to loose wire end ferrules with a cross-section from 0.14 to 50 mm² (AWG 26-1), but also to twin wire ferrules and taped ferrules.

Ferrules and cable lugs from Zoller + Fröhlich GmbH also comply with the RoHS (Restriction of certain Hazardous Substances) regulations. For processing the ferrules, Thonauer offers a wide range of hand tools and crimping machines for semi-automatic processing.

We would be pleased to advise you of our extensive range.
