Klopp CR1 & CR4 Electric Coin Tube Crimper Review

Klopp CR1 & CR4 Electric Coin Tube CrimperDo you handle or use coin tubes on a daily basis and need an effective way to close the ends shut? This may be in a retail store, bank, school or church environment. If this sounds like a situation you’re in, you may want to consider using the Klopp CR1 or CR4 coin tube crimper (found here). This is my review.

At ABC Office, we offer a wide selection of coin counters and sorters, which is a great way to save time over manually counting and sorting coins. Many people, when counting and sorting coins, like to put these coins in a coin tube (sometimes called shotgun shell style coin rolls). Many counters even include funnels for easy coin tube loading.

So what do you do when the coin tube is filled? I have seen people try and fold the ends shut by themselves, but this often ends up in a mess. This is because if the ends aren’t properly closed or crimped, they can re-open, causing the coins to spill out.

The Klopp CR series of coin tube crimpers (CR1 & CR4) are designed to provide a solid and long-term crimp that will keep the ends of the rolls closed and secure. This is done electronically and takes 2-3 seconds.

Both the CR1 and the CR4 are the same machine, the only difference is the amount of crimping head that they come with them. The CR1 comes with 1 head and the CR4 has 4 different heads.

Before you use the Klopp CR1 or CR4, you will want to be sure you have the correct size crimping head attached to the machine. The crimping head you use will depend entirely on the denomination of coin roll you are closing.

These are the exact operation instructions copied straight from the manual:

Step 1. Insert Crimping Head into black receiver on machine. “Push and Twist” to ensure crimping head is located and locked in place.

Step 2. Turn machine “ON”.

Step 3. For Pre-Crimped “Shotgun Shell” Style Wrappers:
Fill wrapper. Press the pre-filled coin wrapper firmly against crimping head till the wrapper is tight and a rolled seal has been formed.

Step 4. For Flat Style Wrappers:
Fill wrapper. Divide the extra paper evenly on each end. Back one of the open ends with
your finger. Press the pre-filled coin wrapper firmly against the crimping head till wrapper is tight and a rolled seal has been formed. Repeat on opposite end.

The build quality on the CR1 and CR4 is exceptional, which should come as no surprise. Klopp coin sorters, counters and money handling equipment almost always features an excellent build quality.
