Actually, there are many steps and many ways to crimp hose, but to make it easier for you to use it, we describe it with 5 good steps in crimping hose, please refer to the steps below.

Measure and cut the hose

Measure the length of hose you need and cut it to the required size with a cutter.

Make sure the specifications are correct

Select the correct crimp diameter for each hose assembly.

Place the hose in the crimping machine

Push the end of the hose into the crimping machine and through the die so that the hydraulic hose fitting appears above the die. The top of the hose, now hidden inside the fitting, must not be over the die.

Crimp the hose

Your hydraulic hose is now ready to begin crimping. Start the engine. The cylinder head will slowly move down. When pushing the collar, the collar presses against the die. Do not touch the machine until the collar is firmly attached to the bottom of the die. The engine must then be in a stopped condition.

Verify crimp diameter

Make sure the hose is finished to the correct crimp diameter by checking the chalk marks made on the hose. If the chalk mark is no longer at the base of the fitting, it means the hose or fitting moved during crimping. However strict it may seem, this is not a good condition. Otherwise, if the chalk mark is in place, you have successfully crimped the end of the hydraulic hose.
