Our large swagers are designed to handle wire ropes up to 6″ diameters. With optional equipment like rigging device to form the eye and lifting yoke to change dies, one operator can manage the entire swaging operation!
Despite the large size of these swagers, the noise level is only 74 dB (A).
The machine is equipped with a powerful two-stage hydraulic unit controlled by solenoid valves. Operation is extremely easy since an electrical foot pedal permits the operator to use both hands when swaging. In addition to the normal up/down function the foot pedal has a ”hold” position to facilitate rope/eye adjustment and to make tool set-up quicker. To optimize and quality secure the operation, the maximum swage load can be pre-set with automatic return of the piston. The start position, (opening between the press dies) is adjustable. All these features save time and unnecessary movements for the operator. When left un-used the resource saving automatic shut down will turn off the machine, but is easy to start again by pressing down the foot pedal.
Soft starter is standard for these large machines.
With insert die holders even smaller dies can be used. To compensate the weight of a smaller lower die, the valve house can be adjusted to prevent the piston from drifting.
