Stop Button steel swage Wire Rope Sleeves for aircraft wire rope
About Wire Rope Sleeves and Ferrules
Wire rope sleeves and stops are wire rope accessories used to
terminate the ends of wire rope and cable. A wire rope stop may be
placed anywhere on the steel cable but is primarily used at the
ends to keep the wire rope from fraying. Most sleeves and stops
utilize a hydraulic press for swaging but some may be “hand swaged”
by using a special swage tool.
Before using sleeves with other type lay, construction or grade of
wire rope, it is recommended that the termination be proofloaded to
prove the adequacy of the assembly
Stop buttons can be made from a variety of materials depending on
their application including aluminum, copper, stainless steel and
Aluminum button stops should be used with galvanized steel to avoid
a dissimilar metal reaction.
Copper button stops should be used with stainless steel to avoid a
dissimilar metal reaction.
Stainless steel cylindrical terminals should be used with stainless
steel cable in corrosive environments.
Zinc plated wire stops, swivel assemblies and wire clamps are for
very light loads and temporary wire holding applications. These
button stops can be loosened and then readjusted.
