Stainless Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips
The Stainless Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips are a reliable and essential component for securing the ends of wire rope cables, preventing them from sticking out and ensuring safety in various applications. These clips are specifically designed to meet the demands of rigging tasks and are preferred by professionals due to their superior strength and durability.
Manufactured from a single piece of steel, the Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips offer exceptional structural integrity. Unlike cast clips, the drop-forged construction process involves heating the steel and hammering it into shape, resulting in a linear grain structure and enhanced strength. This makes them the strongest available clips for use with heavy loads and suspended loads, providing a reliable and secure connection.
To further enhance their performance and longevity, the saddles of the Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips are hot-dipped galvanized. This protective coating adds an extra layer of corrosion resistance, making the clips suitable for use in various environmental conditions. Additionally, the nuts and bolts are electro-galvanized (zinc plated), providing further protection against rust and ensuring the longevity of the connection.
When it comes to critical applications, it is essential to adhere to industry standards and recommendations. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) all recommend using only forged clamps for such applications. The drop-forged construction of these wire rope clips ensures they meet these standards, making them the ideal choice for critical and high-stress applications.
The Stainless Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips are particularly suitable for use with 7 x 19 aircraft cables. This designation indicates that the rope has seven strands, and each strand comprises nineteen wires. BH-USA, a reputable supplier, specifically recommends the use of 7 x 19 aircraft cables for boat lift applications. However, it is important to consider at least a 5:1 safety factor when calculating working loads, ensuring a robust and reliable connection.
For added assurance, BH-USA provides a test certificate for all cables sold upon request. This certificate verifies the performance and quality of the cables, giving you peace of mind when using them in critical applications.
It is important to note that while these wire rope clips are commonly referred to as aircraft cables, they are not suitable for use in aircraft controls. Their primary application lies in securing heavy loads and suspended loads in various industries, including construction, marine, and transportation.
In summary, the Stainless Drop Forged Wire Rope Clips are an indispensable component for ensuring the secure and reliable connection of wire rope cables. Their drop-forged construction, along with the hot-dipped galvanized saddles and zinc-plated nuts and bolts, provides exceptional strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. Adhering to industry recommendations, these clips are the preferred choice for critical applications, offering the peace of mind and reliability required for overhead lifting or suspending heavy loads.
