Screwdrivers SLIM
Optimal accessibility of recessed screws
The new SLIM screwdrivers solve problems created by special applications. However, the SLIM version is increasingly becoming standard as it can be used for all applications.
Choosing the right screwdriver and its tip in consideration of the screws to be used and their screw heads is extremely important, as if the wrong choice is made, both the screw and also the screwdriver could be permanently damaged. The exact size also needs to be taken into consideration to ensure optimal power transfer.
A brief overview of the most popular screw profiles:
The slot-head screw is the oldest of all types of screw heads. It is simple, but used less and less today as the screwdriver quickly loses control and slides off.
The cross-head Phillips profiles are identified by the PH code and have a simple cross shape. These are the most common type of screws. The size of the cross-shaped profiles varies as a general rule from 0 to 3.
The cross-shaped Pozidriv profile, which is referenced by the PZ code, have the shape of a double cross, where the smaller cross is offset from the larger cross by 45°. Pozidriv profiles (PZ) range from size 0 to 4.
The TORX® profiles with the abbreviation T provide an extremely good grip. TORX® profiles are increasingly being preferred due to their excellent power transfer.
The square socket screw features a square screw head. With this screw, optimal power transfer is possible, as it is very difficult to slide out of the square socket.
The so-called combination profile, that can be found today mainly in switching devices, is considered to be the all-round solution. However, the optimal torques can only be achieved if you select the right screwdriver. The profile shape is a combination of the profiles slot head and PH or PZ respectively.
pressing and cutting tools
CimCut ´n´Press
The ability to verify electrical connections to ensure functionality is becoming increasingly important to builders and operators of electrical systems. A temporary malfunction of a system due to faulty crimping can result in significant economic as well as object-related damage. A state-of-the-art battery-operated hydraulic crimping tool measures, tests, and monitors the crimping processes so that the user can keep a log of all connections on a daily basis. 
This means that a machine-based error is virtually ruled out. The cutting tools on a battery-powered hydraulic basis also offers handling advantages. Particularly with frequent cutting, they make regular use easier for the user. With coordinated cutting geometries, the best possible cutting results can be achieved with all diameters. This makes the next work step after cutting much easier.
Measuring tools
Highlights simply explained
Display (counts)
Shows the highest possible number of digits on the display (including 0, example 6000 counts = usual display range 0 to 5999). The larger the value is, the greater the resolution of the display value can be. The measurement range also goes further without having to switch over to the next higher or lower measurement range. Example 2000 counts vs. 4000 counts. Mea-surement of 230.3 volts - /> display with 2000 counts = 230 V, display with 4000 counts = 230.3 V
TrueRMS true effective value measurement
The true effective value measurement TrueRMS allows correct mea-surement of asymmetric voltages and currents which deviate from the basic shape of the sine wave. Such asymmetric voltages usually occur
with output regulators such as dimmers, speed controllers, timed switching regulators, pulsed battery chargers or electronic drive controllers in model construction etc. Conventional average value measuring tools sometimes show significant deviations on such special measurement tasks.
The Auto-Range function always sets the best possible range during the measurement to show the optimal resolution of the display. The user can concentrate on the measurement which will significantly simplify the handling.

What you should consider before making a purchase
To select the right measuring tool, you need to take the highest category which may be used into consideration. Measuring tools are divided into various measurement categories in accordance with their applications and affiliation. The CAT specified is always the highest permissible measurement voltage against ground potential:
Measuring tools in class CAT I
Are used to make measurements on devices which are either battery-operated or have an integrated transformer for galvanic supply isolation. Example: Repairs to torches, transistor radios, stereo systems, conventional 12/24 V on-board car electronics, etc. Measuring tools in class CAT II Are used for making measurements on devices which are connected to the mains via a mains plug. Example: Repairs to household electrical appliances, electrical tools, etc.
Measuring tools in class CAT II
Are used for making measurements on devices which are connected to the mains via a mains plug. Example: Repairs to household electrical appliances, electrical tools, etc.
Messgeräte der Klasse CAT III
Are used for making measurements in house installations and for
permanently installed devices. Example: Distributors, sockets.
Messgeräte der Klasse CAT IV
Are used for making measurements at the source of the low voltage installation and outdoors. Example: Measurements on main fuses,
solar panel installations, electric cars.
Butt connectors in extended version
So far no technical option of repairing or extending a damaged solid conductor with insulated connectors. Thanks to the extended design of the copper sleeve, the conductors can now be double crimped with the new butt connector. This is particularly suitable for all cases of repair to damaged solid conductors. 
In addition to that it provides the only tested solution of connecting a solid conductor with an insulated connector.
A mistake is often made when using cable pull systems: The fibre glass rod is pushed in or pulled out by hand which usually causes it to break. This increases the risk of injury at the breakage point correspondingly. Both are painful and annoying occurrences which could easily be avoided: The Special Pulling Grip Kati® Blitz EASY GRIP (CIMCO article no. 14 2180) will help you pull the fibre glass rod through quickly and safely. Here, the force is applied with a two-jaw system which securely grips the glass fibre rod. This ensures that you can push in and pull out the glass fibre rod 
saving energy and without fatigue while 
not damaging it.
Polykat® – The fibreglass rod
The combination of extreme bending strength and maximum thrust stability provides the Polykat® fibreglass rod with the characteristics of a flexible rod. As a result, extremely small bending radii are possible and tight pipe bends can be passed through easily. The smooth plastic coating has excellent sliding properties and reduces the friction resistance to a minimum. It is characterised by high wear resistance. The high elasticity of Polykat® fibreglass rods facilitates the construction of unrivalled small, compact and handy devices.
Cut the cable correctly
When cutting individual wires and conductors, it is often the diagonal pliers that are closest to hand which are used. However, it would be more sensible to use designated cable shears for this purpose. These will ensure cutting deformation-free and precisely. The flat cutting geometry of the cable shears cuts the copper wire cleanly and it retains its shape, whereas diagonal pliers would crush the copper wire in this case due to their angular cutting geometry. These crushed wires then for example make insulation stripping later on more difficult further down the line.
Work on live parts
Work on live parts may only be carried out under certain safety conditions. This includes the use of tools manufactured especially for this which is mandatory. All insulated CIMCO tools have the VDE test mark.
So it is important before using all VDE tools that you make sure that they have the test mark and that the products are not damaged. This is the only way to make sure you are working safely. 
Screwing tools with torque should be calibrated at least once a year or after 5000 load changes.
Wire end ferrules
Not to be underestimated: Wire end ferrules protect the stripped ends of fine-wire or flexible wires so that they can be connected in terminals without damaging the individual wires. Fine-wire wires must be provided with wire end ferrules if the connection terminal is not approved for the connection of non-terminated wires. When installing wire without a wire end ferrule in a terminal which is not suitable for it, individual wires often do not make contact in the terminal, and this can lead to increased resistance and even to combustion. The wire end ferrules should be selected exactly according to the conductor cross section and processed using tools intended for the purpose.
A simple and practical solution, with sleeves made from high-quality electrolytic copper that optimally fit the cable dimensions. The special ferrules act as filling material between the conductor and the connection element, ensuring a perfect and permanent connection. Structures (from left to right) 
ek (RE)= round single-stranded, solid conductor; 
tk (RM)= round multi-stranded, non-compressed; 
tkt (RM)= round multi-stranded, compressed; 
ec (SE)= sector-shaped single-stranded, solid conductor; 
tc (SM)= sector-shaped multi-stranded
The dimensional relations of the individual conductor types compared to a solid conductor (far right). It becomes evident from the graphic that a multi-stranded conductor is larger by a factor of between 1.13 (non-compressed) and 1.04 (theoretical maximum compression) than a solid conductor of the same cross section. However, a medium compressed conductor results in a factor of 1.1.
