Product Description

The Swage Fork 3.2mm G316 Stainless Steel terminates 3.2mm Wire Rope. Alternatively, a Swage Fork may be called a Fork Terminal. It has a removable pin secured with a G Clip. The non-adjustable G316 Stainless Steel swaged end terminal fastens to anchor points. As a result, swaged Terminals must match the size of the anchor points. Additionally, a Swage Fork Terminals fit a single wire diameter. Other adjustable fittings – normally of a similar swaging style – are used in concert with Swage Fork Terminals. Usually, the pin diameter and the suitable wire size are part of the naming convention.

Usage: The Swage Fork 3.2mm fastens with the removable pin to an anchor hole. An anchor holes form the frame or area that will contain the wire. 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 G316 Stainless Steel fittings onto wire larger than 2.0mm with an adequate hydraulic swaging tool.

Usage Tips

  • Swage Forks are cast AISI 316 marine grade stainless steel and designed to attach stainless steel wire rope to a wide range of fixtures and fittings such as Screw Eyes, Saddles and Eye Bolts.
  • Fork Terminals are swaged (connected) to the wire (hydraulically) to form an 'end'. Please Note: Swage Terminals must be swaged to wire rope with an appropriate swaging press.
  • The terminal is normally fastened to a saddle or a rigging screw on the posts or uprights that form the frame or area that will contain the wire.

Installation Considerations

  • Matching alloys is important and avoiding cross contamination is very important.
  • It is recommended that similar alloy fasteners are used so that a dis similar (corrosive) alloy reaction is avoided. Generally G304 Stainless Steel screws are used in timber (counter sunk screws in soft woods and pan head screws in hard woods). Generally, G304 Stainless Steel Rivets are used to attach fittings to metal surfaces (aluminium, mild steel, and stainless steel).
  • It may be necessary to (electrically) isolate and insulate fittings from the substrate material - again to avoid a galvanic (dissimilar alloys) reaction. Nylon washers can be very effective in this regard
