A wire rope sling can be used in many different lifting and rigging applications, including as a static support, as well as an attachment to a crane to move heavy-duty loads. A swage socket can be added as a treatment to the end of the wire rope to add increased functionality for heavy-duty lifting and rigging.
Swage sockets are named that way because of how the socket is attached to the wire. This socket is attached using a swager, or a hydraulic machine along with special dies. This type of socket is a great choice for lifting and rigging because swage sockets are more resistant to fatigue where the cable and socket come together. Swage sockets can also give you 95 – 100% of the rope’s strength when they are properly fitted.
Our swage sockets can be fitted to wire rope slings from ¼ inch to 1-1/2 inches in diameter to get you the capacity and working load limit you need for your project. These swage socket slings can also be found with both open and closed swage sockets.
