Swage Sleeve – 4.0mm Oval G304 Stainless Steel connects 4.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope. A Swage Sleeve may be called a crimp, clamp, ferrule, or tube. The Swage Sleeve – 4.0mm Oval G304 Stainless Steel is 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 single wire diameter. 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 Sleeve – 4.0mm anchors together 2 strands of wire. The alloy AISI G316 is more ‘brittle’ than AISI G304 and therefore carefully avoided. The AISI G304 alloy is compatible with G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope. AISI G304 has increased malleability 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 Stainless Steel fittings onto wire larger than 2.0mm with an adequate hydraulic swaging tool.
