MS Control

MS models are well suited for single-piece production (e.g. repair shops). The MS control is the most basic and easy to use control offered by Finn-Power.

The crimping diameter is set by using a 10-turn vernier dial. Each turn is equivalent to crimping diameter changes of 1 mm. The dial is incremented in whole, tenths and hundredths mm settings.
