Single-Part Body Mechanically Spliced Wire Rope Slings

On mechanically spliced wire rope slings, eyes are formed using the flemish eye splice and are secured by pressing a metal sleeve over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull is directly along the centerline of rope and eye. This type of splice provides the most efficient use of rope capacity and is economical.

Swaging Provides Positive Grip This cutaway of a metal sleeve strands, swaged onto a splice shows how metal “flows” into valleys between strands to positively prevent ends from unlaying when sling is used within its rated capacity.

Description

Mechanically Spliced Wire Rope Slings

Flemish Eye Splice – In the standard flemish eye mechanical splice, wire rope is separated into two parts—3 adjacent strands, and 3 adjacent strands and core. These two parts are then re-laid back in opposite directions to form an eye, and the ends are secured with a swaged metal sleeve.
