Lens head terminals are mainly used in railing accessories and are also often installed in this area. Tensioning of steel cables is no problem with such elements. Such a lens head terminal creates a connection transition between the attachment of a screw connection and a steel cable.
Surely you have already asked yourself what exactly a lens head terminal made of steel or stainless steel is. This is the question many people ask themselves when they see a lens head terminal for the first time or hold it in their hands. Exactly this little helper, the lens head terminal, is the subject of this article. Here we want to answer questions about how a lens head terminal made of stainless steel or steel is constructed exactly and how it can best be assembled with a wire rope or a steel cable and thus create a useful and heavy-duty connection. We would also like to give you some locations of such terminals with a lens head, so that you will quickly understand where such terminals are used. Furthermore it should also be a matter of which materials lens head terminals are made of and also want to give you a small insight how our stock assortment is composed at different lens head terminals. In the last section of this article, we will discuss, as always, how the production process of a lens head terminal is carried out with today's state-of-the-art machines. We would like to start by briefly explaining the structure of such a lens head terminal, which can be made of steel or stainless steel. Such a special terminal has like a rivet also, a head which is round and looks like a mushroom. At this mushroom the shaft runs away, which has a blind hole at the end. This blind hole at the lens head terminal or at the shaft is intended to hold a steel cable or a wire rope and to insert it up to the stop. In order to mount the lens head terminal, a crimping tool is always required, which can firmly press the shaft of the lens head terminal. This is the only way that the steel cable can be securely and firmly held and can no longer free itself from the terminal. This crimp connection is an inseparable connection and can no longer be released without destroying the lens head terminal or the steel cable. Such terminals with a lens head are always used on wire rope bracings, which are mounted on railings or staircases, or on boats and yachts as wire rope bracings. The fields of application are almost unlimited in order to produce such crimp connections economically. The material used for lens head terminals is always normal steel or stainless steel in V2A or V4A. If you want to be absolutely sure and use your lens head terminals on the high seas without any problems, you should always use the V4A stainless steel for the lens head terminals.

Lens head terminals made of steel or stainless steel have become very popular in recent years because a lot has happened in wire rope connection technology in particular and the use of crimp connections when attaching steel ropes or stainless steel wire ropes in fastening technology gave a big leap. This also applies to the use of lens head terminals made of stainless steel. The application in particular is quick and inexpensive to implement and the individual terminals with a lens head can simply be pushed over the end of a steel cable or a wire cable. By crimping with the appropriate tool, the shaft of the lens head terminal is pressed so far that it is no longer possible to remove the terminal without destroying it. The point now is that due to the increased demand for lens head terminals, the demand of the dealers must also be met.

The production of lens head terminals made of stainless steel
Back in the last section, we would also like to give you an insight into the possibilities of manufacturing lens head terminals made of stainless steel or steel today, whereby the point of economic efficiency is not ignored. Since a lens head terminal made of stainless steel is a round part, only the production with a CNC lathe can be considered. A loader is always connected to a CNC lathe, which can work on all replenishment requests for raw and round material during feeding into the system. A loading system is always coupled with the CNC lathe and communicates constantly with it. Once all the round materials have been stored in the loader in sufficient quantities as strand material, the next step is taken, which involves setting up the automatic machine. The entire parameter profile of cutting data for the production of a lens head terminal is now entered and the zero points set up. After this step, the actual production can begin. First, the material is drawn into the chuck of the machine and firmly clamped. The pin can now first be turned on the stainless steel lens head terminal. The excess material is removed with a turning tool. In the next working step, the center is centered and the hole is prepared for the blind hole. This can then be inserted into the lens head terminal. The terminal is then tapped and transferred to another processing station. Now the lens head is turned to the terminal. Once this section has also been completed, all finished lens head terminals fall into a collecting tray. If enough parts are collected, they can be put into an electro-polishing bath where these lens head terminals are now high-gloss. These are then sorted and can be stored in our warehouse. Now the finished lens head terminals are waiting for your purchase and can then be packed and sent to you.
