way of use for wire rope swaged socket
The wire rope terminations that require swaging on a hydraulic press are designed as a hollow shank where the wire rope is going to be fitted into and swaged afterwards. The shank presents a reduced machined area at the bottom end which is equal to the proper diameter obtained after swaging.

The open swage sockets are forged from special quality carbon steel bar; it’s hardness is obtained by spheroid annealing.

When properly applied, the open swage sockets have an efficiency rating (fabrication) of 100%, based on the standard manufacturer’s given strength for the wire rope.

These sockets are recommended for use with 6x19S / 6x36WS and only with other metallic core wire rope construction types (it is not recommended to be used with fiber core wire ropes).
