All FibreMax cables are supplied as standard with end fittings. Due to our unique endless winding production process the fittings are directly incorporated during this process. This means that there is no need for splicing as is required with traditional steel wire or braided synthetic ropes. The breakload we specify for our cables is the minimal break load (MBL) at which the cable will break; there is no need to subtract a certain percentage because of splices.
Our cables can be supplied with different types of end fittings in order to meet customer's requirements. All end terminations are custom made according to the requirements of the customer. They are supplied in different sizes assuring the smallest possible dimensions and weight. Types of end fittings that can be supplied are:
Size of pin diameter and width of end fitting can be engineered to customer requirements.
To reduce weight instead of having a heavy socket.
Different types can be supplied according to industry/offshore standards.
The cable has no end fittings and can be used as a sling.
Depending on the application the end fittings can be supplied in different materials such as stainless, galvanised or coated steel. The end terminations can also be supplied with integrated bearings (ball/spherical/slide).
