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.

The open swage sockets when properly applied have an efficiency rating (fabrication) of 100% based on the standard manufacturer's given strength for the wire rope.
The open swage sockets are recommended for use with 6x19, 6x37 and other IWRC wire ropes cable constructions.

They are also approved for use with galvanized bridge rope.
The open swage sockets are not recommended to be used with fiber core wire ropes. All the slings swaged with these sockets shall be proof loaded in accordance with ASME B30.9
