The R end stop is a round end stop made of Aluminium alloy, AW-5051A, same as for our T ferrules.
Round aluminium ferrules are commonly used as end stops or as stoppers on bright or galvanized wire rope. The aluminium alloy is EN AW 5051A according to EN 573-3, and complies with material requirements in EN 13411-3. Same type of dies as for T ferrules are to be used.
TO BE NOTED
Round aluminium end stops are not recommended for use in high strength applications. The expected strength of this end stop is approx 50 percent of the MBL of the wire rope. Accordingly, verifying tests must be performed to secure the strength of the termination.
