The ES end stops are made from mild carbon steel. They are designed for full proof applications of rotation resistant wire rope. Maximum rope grade is to be 1960. Wire rope must conform to EN 12385. The chamfered surface around the cylinder matches different fitting devices. To distribute the stress over a larger area the bore of the end stop is slightly conical.
The ES end stops are specifically designed for rotation resistant round strand ropes with a fill factor, f, between 0,61 and 0,76. The system is tested for rotation resistant wire rope, class 35 (W) x 7, fill factor 0,71. Terminations should not be exposed to temperatures outside the range -40°C to 150°C. The wire rope must protrude the end stop by 1,5 x diameter of wire rope before swaging. If necessary the end can be cut off afterwards. Annealed end must not be swaged. End stops are marked with article number or as per customer’s request.
TO BE NOTED
Our ES system is designed to fit a number of general end stop applications. One of these being the crane wire rope field.
Note! Before ordering it is important to make sure that the housing where the end stop will be fixed is matching the ES series diameters and lengths after pressing. Due to the variety of steel wire ropes, it is difficult to approve all of them. If other wire rope constructions are to be used tests must be done in order to verify the strength of application.
