Wire Rope Terminations. Volume III Training and Inspection Manual for the Assembly of Wire Rope Terminations.

Metcalf JT; Matzano F
NTIS: PB/81-168841 :49 pages
The assembly procedures for nine wire rope terminations used in the mining industry are presented in a format and manner to facilitate training and to provide points where inspection of the termination should be performed. The manual was prepared to be used primarily for field mining operations or training where high-capacity machinery is limited. It is not the intent of this manual to suggest that the procedures presented are those to be used by manufacturers or other commercial enterprises. A different set of procedures may be more appropriate where ideal space and equipment resources are available. The assembly procedures were derived from standard industrial practice, manufacturers' recommendations, and open literature on the subject. These same procedures were used to prepare test specimens for an extensive series of pull and axial fatigue tests. The results of these tests indicate that these procedures are satisfactory in all respects. The manual is to be used as part of a complete training program. Although a brief glossary is included, there has been no attempt to make this a primer on wire rope.
