In mechanically swaged fittings, high pressure swagers and precision dies cause metal of the socket to flow around wires and strands to offer the ultimate in compactness and strength with minimum weight.
Normally, only regular lay rope is used. Swaged assemblies are interchangeable with poured sockets up through 2" rope diameters. Assembly length is measured from centerline of pins for both open and closed sockets.
Indicate choice of end fittings on purchase orders by the suffixes “OS” or “CS” after the stock number, for open or closed type fittings. Pins and cotters are supplied as standard on open fittings, but assemblies may be specified without pins. Fittings will be assembled in the same plane unless specified otherwise on the order.
