Why bother crimping the ferrule? A major company building panels doesn't and relies on the screw doing the job. Whilst I don't like it, I'm actually struggling to find a Reg to support my dislike!

If you quote good workmanship/manf instructions, please post a link to the instructions that accompany/published for the crimps!

I can only think of the torque setting being different, but tenuous to say the least.

Any suggestions?!

Bod,
I would say that if this is a control panel, for machinery then you won't find anything in BS 7671 that is relevant apart from 110.2 (xi) which excludes them from BS 7671 and puts them in EN 60204 territory.
I would then quote them 4.7 from EN 60204-1 & ask them if they have approval from the crimp OEM that is a suitable method of fitting them. Which we know it isnt, so they are stuffed, the crimp OEM will require it to be crimped with a suitable tool.
I normally get Weidmuller crimps from the wholesaler, so Weidmuller tooling.

BS EN 60204-1:2006 AC:2010
4.7 Installation
Electrical equipment shall be installed in accordance with the electrical equipment supplier's
instructions.
