English Abstract




The present invention provides a tool being used to crimp a ring onto
a pipe joint, which includes two half-die members having each bore
openings and a recess formed at their rear end portion for receiving a
body member to be connected therewith by dowell pins, and further
at their front end portion is formed a recess for receiving a threaded
rod coupled to a clamp bolt. The threaded rod is engaged therein a
threaded bore formed thereon a bushing passing through two bores
located thereof each side of the lower half-die member.

The clamp bolt is blocked therein the bushing by a spring pin to be
engaged therethrough a hole formed therewith and through a hole
formed therein the threaded rod.

Further, the both half-die members are disposed in alignment with
the bore openings for receiving the ring that is crimped onto the pipe
joint by the use of a handle having at each end portion a notch to
prevent the handle to be pulled out of the clamp bolt.

Detailed description of the invention:

Now referring to the accompanying drawings, and in particular to figs.
1 to 3, there is shown a tool being used to crimp a ring onto a pipe
joint, which includes two half-die members (1)(2) having each bore
openings (8) and a recess (7) formed at their rear end portion for
receiving a body member (3) to be connected therewith by dowell
pins (4) therein holes (6), and further at their front end portion is
formed a recess (12)(13) for receiving a threaded rod (17) coupled to
a clamp bolt (19). The threaded bolt (17) is engaged therein a
threaded bore (10) formed thereon a bushing (9) passing through two

bores (11) formed thereof each side of the lower half-die member (2).
The clamp bolt (19) is blocked therein the bushing (9) by a spring pin
(15) to be engaged therethrough a hole (14) formed therewith and
through a hole (16) formed therein the threaded rod (17).

Further, the both half-die members (1)(2) are disposed in alignment
with the bore openings (8) for receiving the ring that is crimped onto
the pipe joint by the use of a handle (22) having at each end portion
a notch (23) to prevent the handle passing through holes (21) of the
clamp bolt (19) to be pulled out.

And further, the clamp bolt (19) includes at its upper end portion an
hexagonal-head (20) to be used with a key or ratchet if needed.
And finally, a washer (18) is mounted to the clamp bolt (19) for
protecting the top face of the upper half-die member (1).
Accordingly, while the preferred embodiments of the invention have
been described above, it will be recognized and understood that
various modifications may be made in the invention and the
appended claims are intended to cover all such modifications which
may fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.
