Single Part Slings

Single Leg 115 IWRC

Eyes are typically formed using a flemish eye splice. The ends are secured by pressing a metal sleeve over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull follows a direct line along the center of the rope and eye. Single part body mechanical splice slings have a higher rated capacity than hand-spliced slings.

2 Leg Bridle Slings 125-HT-HT IWRC

Two- and multi-legged bridles

Two-legged bridles Whether used as chokers or with hooks or other end attachments, they are affected by rigging angles. Note the reduction in rated capacity as leg angles are reduced.

Rated capacities shown for multi-leg slings are for slings that have all legs the same length and all legs are equally sharing the load being lifted.

Multi-legged bridles With two, three or four straight legs, they are offered with plain eyes, thimble eyes, open sockets, closed sockets, shackles
or turnbuckles.

For other conditions, contact WireCo WorldGroup.

Super-Flex 915

Large capacity 9-part XIP® wire rope slings

Flexibility and handling ease for rigging large lifts are the main benefits of the 9-part slings.

The 9-part sling is made by laying wire rope continuously through both eyes and the sling body. This results in a body formed with nine parts. The proven
design provides internal adjustment to distribute the load among all nine parts of the sling body. Additionally, the construction makes it possible
to more easily inspect all parts of the sling before and after each lift, which is important to remember if the sling is to be used many times.

Only two splices occur in the entire sling where the two rope ends are spliced at the eyes.

A 9-part sling construction exhibits constructional stretch of approximately 1.5% on the first loading and a lesser amount thereafter. For this reason, lifts
that use two or more legs should always be made with legs that have been subjected to the same past usage when such stretch may affect the lift.

When a sling body must conform to a tight choke hitch or must bend in a tight radius, such as around a pin or post, a 9-part construction may be the most suitable since it can develop greater lifting capacity from a smaller component rope.

Socket Assemblies

110 Spelter Socket

Wire rope assemblies with swaged and spelter sockets

Boom pendants, guylines, raising lines, backstays, lifting bridles and more. Those are the uses of our wire rope assemblies, offered in both poured (spelter) sockets and mechanically swaged sockets. A Design Factor of five has been used to establish the rated capacities seen in the charts.

When ordering your assemblies, please indicate your choice of end fittings on your purchase order by using the suffixes “OS” or “CS” after the model number. “OS” indicates your preference for an open socket fitting, while “CS” designates a closed fitting.

Pins and cotters are supplied as standard on open fittings only. Assemblies may be specified without pins. All fittings will be assembled with the pin holes in the same plane unless your order specifies otherwise.

Both types of attachments develop 100% of the rope’s minimum breaking force.

Spelter Socket

Molten zinc is the standard socketing material, however, an epoxy socketing material can be specified. Both have the same Rated Capacity. Steel forgings are used on rope sizes 1/2” through 1-1/2” and cast steel fittings are used for larger sizes. Rope sizes larger than 4” are available on special order.

The assembly lengths are measured from the centerline point of the pin for open sockets and the bearing point for closed sockets.

115 Swaged Socket

Swaged Socket

In mechanically swaged fittings, high pressure presses and precision dies cause the metal of the socket to flow around the wires and strands to result in the ultimate compactness and strength with minimum weight.

The material is weldless, drop-forged steel.

Normally, only regular lay rope is used in the swaged sockets. The swaged assemblies are interchangeable with poured sockets up through 2” rope diameters. Assembly length is measured from the centerline of pins for both open and closed swaged sockets.

Grommets

210 Strand laid Hand Splice

Hand-splice or mechanical splice grommets

Grommets either have a wire rope body or a body made up of six strands which are laid helically around a strand core. Either a hand-splice or a mechanical
splice then forms an endless sling body.

The minimum circumference of the sling is 96 times the grommet’s body diameter.
Rope-laid grommets are also available.
