Swaging is the process of attaching an end fitting to a wire cable or rope using hydraulic pressure to permanently fuse the two together. The result is a connection that achieves close to the original breaking load of the wire.
Ronstan have a wide range of swage products, all manufactured from high quality, corrosion resistant, marine grade materials, providing a combination of high load capacity and long service life. They are suitable for wire diameters from 3mm (1/8") all the way to 36mm (1-3/8"), with minimum breaking loads ranging from 680kg (1,500lb) to 96,400kg (212,300 lb). We can provide components or completed cable assemblies.
Uses include balustrade / wire handrail infill, bridges, fašades, and structural bracing and support.
