Hydraulic Swaging and Crimping Die Sets

Types of Swaging Dies

There are two different kinds of swaging/crimping die sets dependant on the equipment you have available and the intended application. Larger sizes of fittings and wire rope almost always require a hydraulic machine press, stainless steel fittings also require extra pressure due to the strength of the material.

Depending on the material, size and application there can be two options for creating a termination using cable and wire rope. 

TECNI stock a range of portable hydraulic tools which will enable you to create terminations using diameters up to: 

Galvanised Steel Wire Rope diameter for 6x7 / 6x19 FIBRE CORE Cable using TALURIT Aluminium Ferrules EN 13411-3 - Maximum of 12mm Cable use Code 12 Ferrules

Galvanised Steel Wire Rope diameter for 7x7 / 7x19 STEEL CORE Cable using TALURIT Aluminium Ferrules EN 13411-3 - Maximum 11mm Cable use Code 12 Ferrules (12mm Cable can be swaged with UM13 type ferrules)

Stainless Steel Wire Rope diameter for 7x7 / 7x19 STEEL CORE Cable using Copper Ferrules - Maximum 10mm Cable use Code 11 Copper Ferrules

Our factory also houses a range of hydraulic presses allowing us to swage up to 16mm stainless steel fittings. For more information regarding this please see our Wire Rope Assemblies page.
