Usually what they do with commercial electronics is pull samples from each batch for testing to make sure the equipment isn't malfunctioning. In a production environment you aren't supposed to be using these hand tools, they have machines that turn out thousands of crimps per hour. You give it a bandolier of terminals and a spool of wire flip the switch and it starts crimping away. Servo manufacturers aren't crimping the leads themselves they are just buying premade crimps in bulk.
