Aluminium Ferrule. These ferrules are designed for application with our CLAMP hand swaging pliers (or hydraulic swaging presses if preferred) to galvanized steel wire rope. Depending on the duty requirements they can also be used with solid galvanized wire. We recommend that where assemblies will be moderately to highly loaded, a thimble be used to protect and correctly shape the cable around the eye.
Ferrule sizes available: 1.5mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 3.2mm for 1/8" wire, 3.5mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 6.4mm for 1/4" wire rope diameter.
For critical applications and especially where human safety is a consideration we strongly recommend that all swaged assemblies be pull tested prior to use to prove their suitability for the intended purpose.
