Thread terminals made of stainless steel. Basically, these parts are also very often used in railing accessories. But thousands of such parts are also used every day in mechanical engineering. Thread terminals are used to generate all kinds of tension.
Many who are looking for a thread terminals have very specific requirements that such fasteners should meet. We would like to introduce you on our website which thread terminals are available and which tasks they have to fulfil. In this article we would also like to explain in more detail what such thread terminals are used for and in which areas they are used. We would also like to introduce you to the different materials from which thread terminals can be made. We would also like to go into more detail on the exact structure of such thread terminals. In a separate article, we would also like to explain which types of thread terminals are used today (screwed thread terminals or pressed thread terminals). We would like to start with the construction of such thread terminals. Basically we would like to go into the screwed or the thread terminal which is also for self-assembly. The screwed threaded terminals always consist of at least 2 or 3 different parts, which have to be screwed together as a whole terminal. It has to be said that with a screw threaded terminal a steel cable has to be taken up in the threaded terminal and has to be compressed so strongly by a strong clamping process via a clamping sleeve that the resulting extremely strong static friction, which should inevitably arise between the steel cable and the threaded terminal, should also prevent the steel cable from slipping out of the take-up of the threaded terminal again. Now the threaded terminal consists of the threaded pin and the clamp with the thread. This thread is there for later fixing the steel cable fixed in it with a metal frame or a railing so far that the steel cable is also securely held. Thereby, everything can be screwed tightly over the thread of the thread terminal by means of two nuts. On the front side of the threaded terminal there is now another larger thread, which can hold the union nuts in which the clamping sleeve for the cable is located. The material used for thread terminals is almost exclusively stainless steel. Especially because such terminals have to be braced to the railings of boats and yachts and the threaded terminal therefore inevitably comes into contact with salt water, it is always advisable to prefer the stainless steel V4A. This alloy as V4A or A4 for the thread terminals is an absolute resistance to the salt water to be expected and no rust.
Self-assembly of a thread terminals for steel cables
Of course, many of you would now like to know exactly what happens when a thread terminals made of stainless steel is used for self-assembly. Since pressing a steel cable is out of the question here, but a self-assembly simply by screwing the clamping sleeve to the thread terminals itself should be described. In order to securely hold the steel cable in the clamping sleeve, the union nut of the thread terminals must first be unscrewed. After unscrewing the union nut, the clamping sleeve appears on the inside. Now you can, if the steel cable already has the correct length, insert the steel cable into the clamping sleeve. Please remember that the union with the thread is laid over the steel cable beforehand. If the steel cable now looks out at the back of the clamping sleeve, you can now begin to push the clamping sleeve into the union nut of the threaded terminal. The union nut is now screwed into the thread terminals. You will now feel an increasing resistance which initiates the beginning of the clamping process. Now it is further mounted by further screwing and increasing torque. Now the clamping sleeve presses itself further and further into the union nut, so that the pressure acting on the steel cable becomes greater and greater. If the torque is so high that it reaches from the feeling, now the clamping sleeve with the rope sits so firmly in the thread terminals that it can no longer be pulled out. The self-assembly of the thread terminals is now complete. Now the thread terminal can be screwed into the railing and tensioned until the steel cable is firmly mounted in the railing without play.
Our stock program of thread terminals - Buy online in our online shop
Since the share of stainless steel thread terminals has increased in recent years, especially because ropes and steel ropes have become more and more common in shipbuilding or rope tensioning, Internet shops must also be equipped to meet the increasing demand safely. For this reason, we have also decided to include the stainless steel thread terminals in our stock for self-assembly, so that you can now conveniently buy the thread terminals from us conveniently via the online shop. So we now offer all our customers the possibility to put all their thread terminals for the different rope diameters in the shopping basket and to deposit the desired quantity in the basket. Also the topic security was and is not unimportant to us with your customer data and so we have changed our website a few years ago and your data are now securely encrypted with the SSL certificate.

After a few clicks, you will be shown a selection of payment options where you can choose the one that is best for you. By paying for your thread terminals you now confirm the purchase and we can now prepare the thread terminals for dispatch to you after successful payment.
The production of thread terminals made of stainless steel
Now we have already reached the last section again. Here we will focus on how such thread terminals can be manufactured if the conventional methods are to be used. What do we mean when manufacturing such thread terminals with conventional production? By this we mean the machines with which the thread terminals can be turned. In the past, such thread terminals were manufactured for self-assembly or also for pressing or press-fitting on so-called cam-type automatic lathes. These mechanical marvels were robust but simply very slow and therefore quite uneconomical. If now smaller quantities of thread terminals were to be turned, then a process of setting up was quite complex, because all set-up parameters had to be adjusted by cam disk. This made a changeover to a different type of threading terminal very time-consuming. Today this production of such turned parts runs on serh complex and highly sensitive CNC lathes, which have to be equipped with milling units and drilling units to produce the complex thread terminals from stainless steel. A loader is always placed behind the machine, which can be loaded with the stainless steel raw material for the threading terminals. Once the CNC machine has been fed with all parameters for the threading terminal production and is ready, the production of the threading terminals can begin. The raw material is first drawn into the chuck of the lathes. Now all turning operations are carried out including the cutting of the threads for the union nut and the base body with the metric thread. The production of the clamping sleeves including the slots of the clamping sleeve also takes place in one operation during the production of the thread terminal. Once all the individual parts have been turned, they can be collected in the collecting basin below the chuck. If enough individual parts have been turned, they can be removed from the oil residues in a washbasin. Now the assembly can take place to a finished thread terminal, for this the clamping sleeve is put into the union nut and screwed to the base piece with dm metric thread. If enough thread terminals are completely assembled, these parts can be stored in our warehouse. If we receive an order from you, the thread terminals will be shipped to your desired address after payment has been received. After a few days, you should receive the ordered thread terminals.
