Wire Rope Presses

If you have the need to permanently press fittings onto wire rope on a regular basis then one of our wire rope presses / swaging machine could be the answer. These industrial machines come in 300, 500, 600 & 1000 tonne models and are all based on the same single block construction base. This enables you to add the features that you require, not the ones that you don’t need.

The solid construction of these wire rope presses ensures a long service life and great strength. They need only the minimum of maintenance and come supplied with a full oil tank.

Solenoid valves control the two stage hydraulic unit to provide extreme power. This range of wire rope presses is easy to operate via a foot pedal, which enables both hands to remain free to handle the rope and fittings. The foot pedal controls the up and down function as well as a hold position . This holding placement enables you to make adjustments to the rope if necessary and also makes the tool / die setting up much quicker.

It is possible to pre-set the maximum swage load with an automatic piston return function. The opening between the dies is also adjustable. This range of wire rope presses has an automatic shut down feature which turns them off when not in use. A press of the foot pedal is all that is needed to start the machines back up again.

These machines can press a wide variety of ferrules onto the respectively sized wire rope, the bigger the machine the bigger the ferrules & wire rope can be. For example the 300T model can  press ’T’ ferrules up to size 24 in a single stage operation or up to a size 30 in a multi stage operation. The 600T model  can swage size 34 ferrules  in a single stage or u to a size 40 in a multi-stage.
