What does swaged mean?
The main purpose of a swaged fitting is to provide an anchoring point at the very end of the rope.
The fitting has a hole at its centre in which the wire rope is positioned. An industrial press machine will apply tonnes of force to create a permanent connection between the rope and terminal.
Wire ropes need permanently connected fittings for certain operations. With just the rope alone, it doesn’t serve as many wide ranging and beneficial purposes.
Rope Services Direct can professionally fit your swaged terminal. We use industrial presses to apply the many forces required for a secure end fitting. If you do it yourself or by others who don’t know what they’re doing, you can’t guarantee a permanent or safe fitting.
Swaged fittings can maintain a high percentage of the breaking load of the wire rope. This figure can be as high as around 90%.
What are some typical applications for swaged terminals?
This equipment is used in a variety of industries including architectural, marine & oil and gas as just a few examples. There is an excellent range of terminals which we can swage onto wire rope. so please ask if you require anything specific.
The reason it enjoys such widespread usage across such a range of industries is thanks to the many benefits that we have examined above.

Terminals are used for the connection of wire rope to a fixing point for securing, and are commonly utilised together with turn-buckles and rigging screws. Available from 3mm to 10mm in stainless or 3mm to 20mm in machined mild steel all of which can be pressed by our skilled team on our own presses.
