Injection Molding

Barb-Tech™ PQD Hose Assembly Tool

The NEWEST tool in the Barb-Tech™ lineup is the Barb-Tech™ PQD hose assembly tool, a revolutionary tool to address the assembly of quick connect mold couplers commonly used in the plastics injection molding industry. The tool is a portable, lightweight solution for push-lock hose assembly, allowing technicians to carry it with them wherever they go and have it readily available at the job site.

The Barb-Tech™ PQD securely anchors the quick connect mold coupler on one side of the tool, while gripping the push-lock hose on the other side and, with a few simple squeezes of the comfort trigger, it pushes the fitting into the hose, in seconds, with ease and precision.

The tool is designed to work with Push-Lock style hoses and quick connect mold couplers from 1/4″ to 1/2″ inside diameter (ID). The Barb-Tech™ PQD Push-Lock Hose Assembly tool is sold as a kit with carrying case and (3) straight and (3) 90° elbow quick disconnect mandrels for 1/4″, 3/8″ and 1/2″ ID hose sizes, with optional mandrels, mandrel assemblies and jaw sets available separately.

Barb-Tech™ Poly-Lock Hose Assembly Tool

The Barb-Tech™ Poly-Lock hose assembly tool is designed to grip slippery polyurethane hose and easily insert push-lock barbed fittings common to industrial automation systems.

The ORIGINAL Barb-Tech™ IIc Hose Assembly Tool

The ORIGINAL Barb-Tech™ IIc push-lock hose assembly tool is for many industrial applications. Quickly install barbed fittings with ease by holding the fitting steady with our easy to change “Click-On” mandrels and guide the hose through the self gripping jaw system. A few squeezes of the handle and you’re finished. Barb-Tech™ IIc is portable and lightweight, allowing technicians to take it to the hose, rather than take the hose to the tool.

Installs most  1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, and some 3/4″ fittings with the “Click-On” mandrel design. Optional mandrels are available for the hard to hold 45° and 90° elbow fittings.
