FERRULES, SLEEVES & FITTINGS
Ferrules are developed in different materials in order to cater for a wide variety of applications. The most widely used ferrules are made from aluminium, copper, carbon steel and stainless steel. They are seamlessly extruded over mandrel for added safety. The ferrules are produced according to valid standards and safety requirements and are fully traceable under ISO 9000. Our folder Splicing Instructions explains how to select, assemble, swage, mark, check and test the ferrules, sleeves and fittings. Many international institutions and authorities approve our splicing systems. Details of these are available upon request.
Straight Ferrules: Ferrules for making turnback eye terminations using steel wire rope cater for a wide development of applications. All our ferrules are produced seamlessly for added safety.
Conical Ferrules: The conical ferrules are tapered at the back to reduce the risk of load snagging. Furthermore, the conical ferrules are elegant and functional.
COPPER (For Stainless Steel Wire Ropes)
Stainless steel wire rope requires the use of either copper of stainless steel ferrules. (Aluminium should not be used, due to galvanism wear.) All our copper ferrules are produced seamlessly for added safety.
CARBON STEEL (For Bright and Galvanized Steel Wire Rope)
Steel ferrules are used for applications where high temperatures and/or abrasion is a factor to be considered. Common examples, the steel melting industry, fishing industry and oil industry.
STAINLESS STEEL (For Bright and Galvanized Steel Wire Rope)
These stainless steel ferrules are used in fields with high demand for resistance to corrosion and design, e.g. long term use in salt water, use in nuclear power plants, architecture etc.
One of the most popular ways to finish the end of a wire rope is to splice it into a loop or an eye; these provide a simple way to attach the wire rope to any anchor point; whilst this is totally acceptable, there may be times when the eye needs more strength and sturdiness; a simple eye splice can be crushed and damaged fairly easily, however if a steel thimble is added into the eye loop whilst being spliced it will offer more strength, sturdiness and crush resistance. Thimbles also offer good protection to the wires in the rope, protecting them from wear and kinks; therefore by adding a thimble to your wire rope you can greatly extend its working life. There are two main kinds of thimbles. The ordinary thimble which is fairly standard, and is appropriate for lighter applications, and then there is the solid thimble, which is more robust and suitable for heavy weight applications. Both types are readily available in a wide rang4e of sizes to suit different diameters of wire rope.
SMALL RANGE SWAGERS
All our small swagers are designed to achieve safe and efficient mechanical splicing. These swagers are easy to use and cope with many different swaging demands. The swagers are of open throat design and can be used either vertically or horizontally; bench mounted or free standing, offering total flexibility. They are available in 20,40, 75 and 150 ton capacities.
MEDIUM RANGE SWAGERS
The Swager body is manufactured from one single block construction that ensures strength, long service life and a minimum of maintenance. All swagers are thoroughly test run and supplied with a full tank of oil. The machine is equipped with a powerful two-stage hydraulic unit controlled by solenoid valves. Operation is very easy since an electric foot pedal permits the operator to use both hands when swaging. In addition to the normal up/down function the foot pedal has a ”hold” position to facilitate rope/eye adjustment and to make tool set-up quicker. To optimize and quality secure the operation, the maximum swage load can be pre-set with automatic return of the piston. The start position, (opening between the press dies) is adjustable. All these features save time and unnecessary movements for the operator. When left unused the resource saving automatic shut down will turn off the machine, but is easy to start again by pressing down the foot pedal.
LARGE RANGE SWAGERS
Our large swagers are designed to handle the largest wire rope. With optional equipment like rigging device to form the eye and lifting yoke to change dies a single operator can manage the whole operation!

RIGGING DEVICES AND PRE-PRESSING MACHINES
This all-round machine can be a pre-pressing machine, marking machine, cutting machine or a swager, all depending on the requirements of the customer. It is perfect for small and medium sized rigging shops.
The self-contained Rigging Bench simplifies the heavy mounting
work with turnback ferrules T18 up to T52 or equal sizes in
UM-type ferrules. Several men were required previously
during the mounting of ferrules on heavy wire ropes and the press often became
blocked when this was used to secure the ferrule when the
loop was made.
SPECIAL MACHINES FOR COLD FORMING
These rod presses can cold form rods and terminals/studs in the same direction as the shaft or rod.
Operation is easy as the rod is placed in the rod press with a die half on each side and the dies are put in a conical die holder. The rod must protrude from the dies and a rod fixing sleeve is mounted on the external part of the rod to ensure that the length stays the same. When powered by a hydraulic unit, the electric foot pedal is pressed and the clamping piston moves forward to press the dies together in the die holder and thereby clamping the rod. When the correct clamping pressure is obtained, the cold forming piston moves forward to form the rod. The piston returns when the foot pedal is released, the dies are pushed forward and to the side to remove the rod.
A100 – Perfect machine for swaging on-site. Low weight and small outer dimensions makes it extremely portable.
A200 – A perfect machine for swaging on-site. Low weight and small outer dimensions makes it extremely portable.
A270 – A perfect machine for swaging on-site. Low weight and small outer dimensions makes it extremely portable. Rigging screws can be swaged assembled.
A350 – A perfect machine for line production, the low weight and small outer dimensions still makes it extremely portable. Rigging screws can be swaged assembled.
Dies are fabricated in different block sizes to fit our various swagers. The smallest swager use block size A and the largest swager use L. The dies are mounted in the die holder of the swager. Smaller block sizes than standard can be fitted to the swager by using insert die holders. These compensate the gap between the smaller dies’ size and the original one.
Our cutting machines are mainly intended for cutting preformed wire rope. The square cut is achieved by shears or disc cutting. We have a wide range of manual and automatic machines to choose from. The ideal machine can be chosen depending on the amount of cutting required and the wire rope diameter range.
The LK 26 and LK 40 hydraulic shear cutting machines are ideal for cutting wire rope in a safe and clean way. The machines are designed for efficiency and are very economically priced. The open design allows for quick easy insertion resulting in speedy
operation. Equipped with an auto switch the motor stops automatically after the cutting operation. The machines are easily started again by pressing the foot pedal. This ‘green’ measure saves valuable resources and allows for a quieter work environment.
The CC 9526 is a low weight cutter designed to cut wire rope up to Ø 26 mm (depending on wire rope type and grade). It is hydraulically operated with a maximum pressure of 700 bar and is supplied for single acting operation. The wire rope cutter is used together with our portable electrical pump (HAGG 7002) and is very easy to operate with a switch on the handle.
Our automatic cutters are mainly designed for larger volumes and serial production. Shears perform the cutting operation. All of our cutters have measuring units, which enables the machine to cut the correct length. The smooth start and retardation of the
feeding unit contribute to accurate cutting. The wire rope is fed through the machine into a tube. When the rope is cut, the tube opens and the rope falls into a bin. Both the tube and feeding units are operated hydraulically with a low noise level. Compressors are not included.
Our annealing machines do not use shears or hydraulic cutters, the wire rope is twisted off by annealing. Current is applied to heat the wire when the rope is clamped. When the rope is red hot; it is then twisted. After twisting, the rope is slightly rounded and the wires will not unwind. Please compare the annealed and the square cut ends below.
By increasing the distance between the clamping chucks the wire end becomes more pointed, e.g. ideal for excavating machines etc. We manufacture both types, manual and automatic annealing machines.
All manual annealing machines are equipped with eccentric levers for rapid clamping. Only one basic setting is required for a specific wire rope diameter. The clamping dies are designed so that they do not require altering for different wire rope diameters.
The eccentric lever is designed to open sufficiently to facilitate insertion of the wire rope from above. The machine is hands free, the current is controlled via a foot pedal. The machine can also be made mobile as an extra option.
COILING AND REELING MACHINES
Our coiling machines are mainly intended for coiling wire ropes from a main reel/drum to a new smaller reel/drum or to a coil. It is possible to combine different machines and customize solutions.
UL 7000 – Integrated or stand-alone application for coiling or reeling. Adjustable inner diameter and coil width.
MA 40 – Measuring unit – Measuring Unit MA 40 is to be mounted on manual cutting machines like AV-machines or LKS-machines.
UL 800 and UL 1200 – Integrated or stand-alone application for coiling. Adjustable inner diameter and coil width.
These machines are extremely heavy-duty and have proven themselves in years of rugged, real world industrial and military rigging environments. Load force to be specified by customer all the way up to 30 000 kN. All Test Beds will perform proof load testing, destructive (break) testing, cyclic testing and long term fatigue testing (depending on options). Each machine is designed for maximum operator safety. Our Proof test Machines are enclosed on the sides and ends with fully opening, hydraulically actuated, operator safety guards.
The loading force of our Test Beds is provided by hydraulic cylinders, one cylinder is for the main (high) loading force and a smaller one (optional) for the low loading force. Each pulling cylinder has its own heavy-duty electronic load cell for highly accurate (+/- 1%) independent display of the loading force. Each load cell is calibrated to the ISO 7500-1 at the factory.
This 1500 metric ton testing machine is a three in one machine. Its capabilities include traditional load, proof cycle and break testing as well as spreader bar testing and a slack removal system for long stretch, test specimens. The movable head is hydraulically controlled so that it can walk down the frame under load to remove slack from the specimen prior to load testing.
Vertical Test Beds
Vertical Prooftest Machines are used for testing slings, lifting devices and chain hoists. We make both a static test and a dynamic test vertical machine. The static test will pull to a load. The dynamic machine will not only pull to a load, but it will also keep a constant load on the specimen. This is especially useful for testing chain hoists, as it allows you to operate the hoist while under constant load, thus testing the hoisting mechanism, as well as the chain.
