Wire rope clamps are also often used in the maritime sector, but wire rope clamps can also be used at many other locations. In principle, wire rope clamps have the task of securely fixing and clamping wire ropes. Thus, tensioning functions on boats and yachts, for example on a railing, are taken over and secured. Wire rope clamps should always be made of stainless steel!
Wire rope clamps made of steel or stainless steel are very special connecting elements that have been specially designed for wire ropes. Many questions are certain, for which purposes such wire rope clamps can be used everywhere? This article will focus exclusively on wire rope clamps made of steel or stainless steel. In this article we would like to give you some information about the construction of a wire rope clamp, as well as about the application and installation of wire rope clamps. We would also like to briefly explain where wire rope clamps can be used and, of course, the materials from which the wire rope clamps can be made. We will also discuss how our range of wire rope clamps is made up. The last section of this website deals with the production of rope clamps for steel ropes. Of course we would like to start with the fields of application of wire rope clamps. Here we have to say in advance that wire rope clamps are designed to connect wire ropes either at the ends of the steel ropes or like cross rope clamps to connect crossing steel ropes safely and detachably. Especially in industry, thousands of wire rope clamps are used today to either connect the steel ropes at the ends, as already mentioned, or to screw crossing steel ropes tightly. There are, for example, enough steel cables that are tensioned along their length at technical installations or welding booths and these must be securely connected and firmly bolted. This is exactly where the wire rope clamps, which are so-called cross clamps, come in. The structure of wire rope clamps, in detail the cross clamps, is described in more detail below. Since this is a wire rope clamp that is supposed to connect two crossed steel ropes, we would like to describe these now. The basic body of the wire rope clamp is completely threaded in the middle. In this thread a stud bolt or a grub screw is guided. On the front side, at the top, there are two milling grooves opposite each other. 90 degrees offset, i.e. crosswise, there are two further recesses. The pairs of steel wire crosses can now be inserted into these and, by screwing in the stud screw, the crossed wire ropes are now compressed strongly by means of the clamping. The steel ropes can no longer be changed in position. They are stuck! The only material used, especially in the outer area of the wire rope clamps, is stainless steel V4A or sometimes stainless steel V2A. This article will deal exclusively with Wire Rope Clamps, how they can be installed, what types of Wire Rope Clamps are available and what materials they can be made of. Furthermore, we would also like to talk about the variety of Wire Rope Clamps, which shapes there are and how they can be manufactured. In any case, we would like to start this article with the choice of materials for Wire Rope Clamps. The basic variations of Wire Rope Clamps used today in industry and by private users are always steel wire rope clamps. These can be made of bare steel or steel that has been nickel-plated, so that corrosion protection can be provided for a certain time. Of course, clamps are also used which have a different coating or can even be galvanized. But in recent years, stainless steel clamps have actually become more and more popular for wire rope clamps. The reason is very simple, because wire rope clamps are actually always used in outdoor areas and less inside rooms. Also the visual aspect has convinced the wire rope clamp, so that stainless steel is almost always the means of choice today, and indeed for most applications. As alloy for the material stainless steel, V2A or V4A are used. To briefly go into the variety of wire cable clamps in more detail, we would like to mention the stirrup wire cable clamps, which have a steel stirrup and two threads to secure with nuts, and the form wire cable clamps, which already determine the shape of the cable and generate the necessary static friction by means of surface pressure or pressing to create a securing element. The way in which wire rope clamps can be fitted is almost identical. The wire rope is always inserted into the mould or under the steel shackle and then screwed tight. The wire rope clamps are always used on wire ropes that have to be tensioned. This always includes the industry as a bulk purchaser and also in recent years the private user. The industry uses them to tension all steel cables that hold curtains, and in private areas it is the cable tensioning on garages for flower tendrils or fences in fence construction. You can see that wire rope clamps can be used in many different ways and are easy to install. In the following paragraphs we will take a closer look at our stock programme and the manufacture or production of these small but important helpers in industry and private areas.

The manufacture of wire rope clamps - Buy online in our online shop
Arrived in the last section, it should give also a short insight, how such stainless steel wire rope clamps can also be manufactured. We would like to start with the fact that you understand with which type of machine such round parts can be machined. We mean CNC lathes. They can effectively turn such small or also large turned parts quickly and very precisely round and turn according to the specifications of the CNC parameters. Such machines always have a coupled loader connected, which communicates directly with the CNC machines. This is important because the loader contains the entire stock of stainless steel or steel shafts, which are later converted into wire rope clamps in the lathe chuck. Before starting production, the machine must always be set up. This means that all mechanical devices are precisely adjusted. Then the set of CNC parameters has to be loaded. This CNC parameter set contains all the feeds and other important parameters, such as speeds, etc. Once the loader has been loaded, the start button can be pressed. Now the round material is drawn into the machine chuck and first a hole is drilled in the centre of the future basic body of the wire rope clamp. In the next step, the thread is cut. Now the basic body of the wire rope clamp is almost finished. Now the basic body is cut off. Now the wire rope clamp is firmly clamped again by taking up a second chuck and the complete grooves are milled in by a side milling cutter. Of course two grooves opposite each other and offset by 90 degrees. Now the wire rope clamp is almost finished. If there are enough wire rope clamps in the collecting container, the assembly of the stud bolts can begin. Once this has been screwed in, the finished wire rope clamps are now stored in our warehouse so that they can be delivered to you when you place an order (purchase). We can then process your order and start shipping the wire rope clamps. After a few days you should be able to receive the package. Now we have already arrived at the last article within this article, which deals with the production and manufacture of wire rope clamps. We are of course also aware that most of you know exactly how wire rope clamps are constructed and how they can be mounted, but unfortunately most of you do not know anything about the production of clamps for wire ropes of this kind. We have already received enquiries about this as well, where also customers of ours would like to have a look at the production, even if it is only for a short time. Of course, we would like to explain some of the details. We would like to give a short explanation about the wire rope clamp. The stirrup consists of a round wire, which can always be produced on a wire ironing machine. For this purpose, the machine, which runs by means of CNC programs, is loaded and the CNc program is loaded. The tubular wire, which is drawn by the connected loader behind the machine, can now be processed within the machine. First the wire is cut to the desired length. Then the thread is cut on both sides. The lower part of the wire rope clamps usually consists of a casting which has the shape for the wire rope and the two holes to clamp around the wire rope. This lower mould is always made using the wax-loss process. At the beginning the raw mould wax part must always be produced. Then it is dipped into a sludge solution, which must then be fired in a furnace. There are two different processes. First the sludge layer burns out hard. In the second step, the heat causes the wax mould to burn out and evaporate. All that remains is the shell, which is solid and empty. The lower form of the wire rope clamp can now be filled with liquid steel or stainless steel as V2A or V4A alloy. After the cooling process the sheath can be broken. All that remains is the unmachined wire rope clamp with the base. In the last section the two individual parts are assembled to form a wire rope clamp. During this process, the clamp is inserted into the holes of the base part and is pushed through. Now the washers are put on and the hexagon nuts secure this clamp. These can then be stored in our warehouse. If an order or a purchase arrives now with us over the on-line shop, then we can arrange and dispatch the commodity to you.
