NEW YORK — Malco Products provides a solution for the challenge of crimping large diameter duct and pipe or crimping multiple small duct runs. Malco said its power-assisted Turbo-X-Tools crimper attachment makes fast, easy, precise, air-tight crimps in 24 to 30-gauge (0.71 to 0.41 mm) galvanized steel duct, spiral duct, ultra lightweight aluminum pipe, and hardened (0.61 to 0.31 mm) black stove pipe.
The drive shaft of the crimper attachment inserts into the chuck of a minimum 14.4 volt cordless or maximum 7 amp ac drill. A telescoping clamp adjusts to fit both length and width of any drill housing. The installed crimper attachment is easily operated with one hand. With the drill set at low forward drilling speed, the rotation of meshing teeth on adjacent gears provides the desired crimp and drives the metal out the right side of the tool.
