Rope End Terminations
Wire rope is a very useful tool. However, for the wire rope to be utilised, some approved type of termination must be attached. Lam Hong provides a variety of fittings designed specifically to terminate wire rope.
The type of end termination selected is determined by the application and strength required of the final assembly. Each wire rope termination attaches with a special method which may affect the strength of the wire rope.
With the annealing machines installed, we can utilise the machine to taper the wire rope ends to avoid strands from loosening during operations. Socketing or swaging of different wire rope sizes can be also carried out in our workshop.
The purpose of swaging is to produce an efficient termination in the end of wire rope that is permanent. Done properly, the swaging process will produce one of the most reliable and efficient terminations available.
Swaging is a cold forming fabrication method used to permanently attach a specially heat treated forged steel fitting to wire rope in order to form slings, boom pendants or other useful devices for lifting.
