Oval DIN 3093 Copper Swage Sleeves connect to Stainless Steel Wire Rope. An Oval DIN 3093 Copper Swage Sleeve may be called a crimp, clamp, ferrule, or tube. These Swage Sleeves are oval in shape. Additionally, Oval Swages are “machine swages”. Duplex Swages are “manual swages”. Machine Swages require hydraulic swaging in diameters of 2.0mm or greater. Additionally, a Swage Sleeve fits a limited range of wire diameters. Other fittings – normally of a thimble – are used in concert with Swage Sleeves. Swage Stoppers do NOT require thimbles for their use.

Usage: The Swage Sleeves anchor together 2 strands of wire. The Copper and G304 Stainless DIN ferrules are compatible with G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope. Copper is cheaper and less ‘brittle’ than AISI G304. Therefore often recommended. Ultimately, increased malleability allows for easy swaging. To clarify, swaging is the process of uniformly crushing a fitting from a starting diameter to a finished diameter. Therefore, the chosen swaging tool must achieve a cold pressure weld. Logically, the requisite pressure and tool size varies with the size of the wire and the fitting. Consequently, we recommend Swaging DIN 3093 fittings onto wire with an adequate hydraulic swaging tool.
