In addition to our custom wire rope assemblies, you can find a variety of ferrules, made with materials that fit different scenarios. Stainless ferrules are cost-effective and commonly combined with stainless steel wire rope.
What are Stainless Steel Ferrules?
A ferrule is the fixture which usually sits at the termination point of a wire rope. This helps with keeping things neat and typically securing it in a loop. This can contain a thimble eye so that it can be used for fastening. A stainless type ferrule is best suited to use in conjunction with a wire rope made from the same material. This is because if an aluminium ferrule is chosen instead, it can create electro-chemical corrosion that compromises the integrity of the entire assembly over time.
Stainless Steel Ferrule Options
Our stainless ferrules let you form an anchor point in a cable. And we deploy a number of different dies depending on the size and shape of the ferrule. The bond it creates is tight and safe. Fit is important in this instance, but the choice of material is also crucial. Stainless steel is an effective option in many situations, although there are other choices like carbon ferrules that are even tougher.
