Press Tools in Operation

This tool was made for a special crimp tag which was designed by ourselves and made to our customers own specifications. The video shows the feeding of the material and the cropping and forming operation. The tags are kept on a continuous strip which is fed onto reels of 5,000 enabling our customer to crimp and crop the tags off using there own special crimping tools.
