Swage Fittings

Swage Fittings

Swage fittings are wire rope components other than swage or stop sleeves, that are attached to the wire by compressing, (swaging) the fitting on to the wire. When swaged properly, most wire rope fittings can hold up to 100% of the wire strength, thus allowing assemblies to meet the various working load limits required on assemblies that must be proof load tested. These fittings can be utilized on a wide variety of cable assemblies with many uses. Common types of swage fittings are plain balls (BAS or NAS-949 type), single shank balls, (MS20664 type), stake eyes, aircraft and marine swage eyes and fork ends (MS20668 and MS20667 type.).
