Rope tensioners are almost exclusively used for tensioning shrouds on boats and yachts. For this reason you can count such rope tensioners also confidently to the maritime articles. Such rope tensioners are also advantageous if they are made of stainless steel and can therefore easily come into contact with water.
Rope tensioners have completely established themselves in today's modern world. Without such rope tensioners, most types of tensioning of ropes, wire ropes or steel ropes would no longer be possible, because these ropes can first be trimmed to an optimum perpendicular by tensioning with the correct rope tensioners. In this article, we would like to give you a little more information about all types of rope tensioners of all kinds and also the areas of application. At the same time, it will also be about which materials such rope tensioners can be made of and how they can best be mounted and function. We would also like to give you an idea of our stock of rope tensioners and finally also explain the production of such partly but quite complex products. However, we would like to start with the locations where stainless steel cable tensioners are used. Basically it can be said that rope tensioners are used everywhere, so that ropes of all kinds have to be tensioned so that the ropes do not sag and thus can guarantee a safe function. The main point is that rope tensioners made of stainless steel or steel are almost always used in large quantities in industrial applications. For example, when technical installations are installed indoors or outdoors and steel cables have to be tensioned from one end of the wall to the next. In this case, a hook is usually inserted into a masonry wall and at the other end the hook which holds the rope tensioner is inserted. This can then be tensioned and the steel cable tightened. Or for example in fence construction. Here, too, steel cables or wire ropes must be tightened over long distances in order to secure the fence to them so that it has a hold and cannot fall off. But even in boat building or yacht building, rope tensioners must be securely fastened to stair railings or other railings as well as masts so that they cannot tip over. The possible materials for rope tensioners are always the normal steel or for the stainless version also always the stainless steel V2A or the V4A stainless steel. This last version is resistant to salt water and can be used at sea.
The construction of rope tensioners
To ensure that cable tensioners can also fulfil their function, correct installation and the associated construction of such tensioning elements is important. We would like to start again with the fact that rope tensioners made of stainless steel or steel always consist of a carrier body, i.e. a sleeve, and that at each end a threaded piece can be screwed in with a fork holder or a hook or an eye. The sleeve body is the heart of every rope tensioner. This consists either of a closed sleeve as a turned part, which ends conically at both ends and is provided with a drill hole crosswise in order to guarantee the function, or as a cast part, which is open in the middle and produced by the casting principle. So that the rope tensioner can also become a rope tensioner, the sleeves or base bodies always have a drilled hole with a thread at each end. This thread is each equipped with a metric right-hand thread or a metric left-hand thread, so that the function (in the next article) can also be described. These two thread end pieces are then screwed into the sleeve body or the base body.
The function of rope tensioners made of steel or stainless steel
This article will deal with how to operate rope tensioners and thus ensure their function. We have already been able to provide you with the detailed structure, so that you have the prerequisite for better recognition of the function. Even with a rope tensioner you have to say that even if you don't mean it, it is a complex component that has to function correctly. The basis to operate the rope tensioner is always the basic body or the sleeve. As already mentioned, this is either a turned part or a cast part. On both sides there must always be the respective thread on the rope tensioner. Here the thread holder is screwed in as a right-hand thread and as a left-hand thread. However, it is important for the function that the two thread tensioners are only screwed a few turns into the thread of the sleeve in order to generate a maximum tensioning power. If the basic body is now ready and the two thread tensioners are only countersunk a few turns in the basic body and the steel cable is inserted cleanly and firmly in the receptacles, then the tensioning function of the cable tensioner can take place. If it is a sleeve body on the rope tensioner, a screwdriver can be inserted into the hole to turn the sleeve or into the existing cast body. Now slowly start screwing the two threaded pieces into the sleeve body. The base body made of steel or stainless steel rotates and the threaded pieces with the fork holders must remain firmly in place. Now the thread backs screw themselves deeper and deeper into the thread of the base body. If the steel cable is now sufficiently tensioned, the turning of the basic body can be finished. The tensioning function of the rope tensioner is now complete!
Our range of rope tensioners - Buy online in our online shop
As the demand for rope tensioners has also continued to rise, it is understandable that such tensioning elements are increasingly being offered and used in industry and the private sector. This is not surprising, as more and more steel cables have to be lashed to railings or to boats and yachts in order to ensure safe use, especially in the outdoor sector. A high demand for rope tensioners made of stainless steel naturally also presupposes the availability which the online shops must make available. However, it is often the case that such elements are not always available in unlimited stock quantities and therefore the shipment can only be sent to the customer after receipt of the new goods. For this reason, we have also decided to continue to expand the category of rope tensioners in order to provide our customers with an even wider range of possibilities in the field of tensioning technology, so that you can buy your rope tensioners quickly and promptly from us cheaply in the online shop.

The production of rope tensioners
Of course, rope tensioners must first be manufactured so that they can also be used on fences and other coverings. In this last section, we would like to briefly explain the manufacturing possibilities of rope tensioners. We would also like to start here with the two versions. On the one hand, rope tensioners can be manufactured as turned parts, round and conically tapered, or as cast parts. To make it possible to manufacture rope tensioners as turned parts, a CNc lathe is used, which can then store the raw round material in a loader magazine as a stock and, depending on use, feed it to the machine. The machine always communicates with the loader. If then stainless steel rope tensioners are to be produced from a cast part, the wax lost process is almost exclusively used today for economic reasons. Debai a pattern is made from wax. This pattern must correspond exactly to the later pipe body. Now the wax part is dipped in a sludge mixture, which can be burnt hard in a burnout oven after the dipping process. As the heat increases, the slurry shell becomes firmer and firmer and the wax structure inside can slowly evaporate, similar to a candle. After a few minutes at high heat an empty shell is created which can now be filled with the liquid stainless steel. If this process is also completed, the shell can be destroyed and out comes a finished basic body scaffold, which must now still be processed. The holes are drilled at the sides of the shell and are equipped with a left-hand thread and a right-hand thread. Subsequently, all specifications such as grinding and high-gloss polishing are carried out and the final assembly of such stainless steel rope tensioners can be completed. Now, the different sizes can be stored in our warehouse and, if you purchase them, they can be processed by us and made ready for dispatch to you. After a few days then, you can hold your ordered rope tensioners in your hands and install them on your project.
