Hanks are listed as maritime articles. They are a kind of quick release, because they are equipped with a bracket. Thus jib riders can be put on and taken off in shortest time. Also here applies, it is best if hanks always find use in stainless steel.
Stainless steel hanks are indestructible, because the hanks is without exception at home in sailing requirements. No sailboat can do without a hank. These little helpers are indispensable and are always, if they are of high quality, made of stainless steel. The front part of the hanks is equipped with a spring that has a preload. Due to this preload, the spring of the jib rider always lies firmly against the wedge of the hanks. The body of the hanks is made of stainless steel V4A. Everything is made of investment casting. The investment casting process is the most cost-effective casting process to produce series cast parts. Once the hanks have been cast, they only have to be gutted and then ground. Once this is done, the hanks can be polished to a high gloss to finish its elegant appearance. The hanks also has a "hook" on which fabrics can be hung. Thus the hanks is a small indispensable helper on every sailboat and belongs in every spare part bag. We have compiled even more information on stainless steel hanks, which you can find on our blog.

The production of metal hanks
In order to be able to use these small or large helpers, we would like to give you a little insight into how hanks are made at all. Every now and then a customer asks us curiously to find out how such a manufacturing process works. We would like to reveal this little secret to you and give you an insight. No technical machines or CNC systems are needed to produce a hank, but the production is, as in the past, purely conventional. Since it concerns very strongly varying structure, these hanks are manufactured exclusively in the wax-Lost-procedure. This means that there is a moulding process which offers the possibility of pouring out the product within the contour using a liquid stainless steel. After the crude stainless steel has cooled down, the parts are basically almost finished. Now all that remains is to close the contour of the hanks and then polish them to a high gloss. Then the different parts can be assembled and tested for their function. If the function of the bow of the hanks is perfect, the hank can now be sold to you.
