How to press a hydraulic hose with a manual hydraulic hose press?
In our video you will also find step by step instructions
In 7 steps to the finished hydraulic hose
Determine pressing dimension
First, select the hose to be pressed and determine the corresponding pressing dimension. To do this, use the manufacturer’s instructions for the corresponding press fitting.
Select press jaw set
The second step is the selection of the appropriate press jaw set. The correct size can be found on one of the front sides of the corresponding jaw set.
Assemble jaw set
Then the press jaw set is mounted. To do this, open the manual tube press completely and mount the individual press jaws so that the lettering faces forward. The individual jaws are screwed tight with an Allen key
Preassemble hose fittings
Now pre-assemble the hydraulic hose fittings together with the press sleeve on both sides. We use a small press to press the fitting into the hose.
Set pressing dimension
Set the correct pressing dimension on the micrometer screw. For information on setting the correct pressing dimension, see another video.
Press hydraulic hose
Insert the pre-assembled hydraulic hose as shown in the video. Then pump using the hand lever of the manual hydraulic pump until the red control lamp lights up. This can take time and is exhausting. Perform the same procedure for the second hose fitting.
Check pressing dimension
Check the pressing dimension of the hose using a caliper gauge. You can find more information about this in another video (link see below)
