1. A method for establishing an electrically conductive connection between an electrical line which comprises a plurality of individual conductors and an electrically conductive component, comprising the following:
producing a crimping element that surrounds the individual conductors sectionally from a crimping element preform by means of a crimping tool;
connecting at least a portion of the individual conductors to the electrically conductive component by an ultrasonic welding process by means of a sonotrode;
wherein the sonotrode comes into contact with the crimping element during the ultrasonic welding process.
