German tiremaker Continental has developed an intelligent crimper controller for distributors and customers in the hydraulic and industrial hose markets.

The technology, called CrimpIQ, allows Continental to provide its customers instant updates to the crimper, which can reduce downtime and speed up the process for customers. The new crimper and instant updating software is cloud-based and can provide instant maintenance information to owners.

“CrimpIQ controller is the next step for Continental, our distributors and customers to become true system and solution partners for hose assembly-related services,” said Andreas Gerstenberger, head of Industrial  Fluid Solutions global business unit. “We believe that the CrimpIQ controller will do the same thing for the hose industry as the smartphone did to enhance connectivity in our daily lives.”

The new CrimpIQ controller will be avai;able on PC200, PC400, PC440, PC600 and PC1200 crimpers.
