Annealing and Tapering

Annealing and Tapering

Our wire rope annealing machine twists the wire rope off by annealing... Current is applied to heat the wire with the rope being clamped-up. As the wire rope turns red hot, it is then being twisted.

After twisting, the rope is slightly rounded and the wires will not unwind. 

By increasing the distance between the clamping chucks the wire end becomes more pointed, e.g. ideal for excavating machines etc...

The Annealing and Tapering process is also commonly known as Fusing and Tapering in the industry, as the wire rope strands are heated to the point where they are being "fused-together", followed by the twisting process thereby producing the tapered-effect when it breaks-off.   

With the expertise of our skilled workers, and utilizing our powerful in-house procured Talurit Annealer, we are able to produce wire-rope ends that are slightly rounded with a nicely tapered tip.

Annealed and tapered wire-rope not only resolves the untwisting problems often encountered, but it also makes the wire rope easier for installation into various types of fittings.

See below for the finishing-stage of the process being done in-house:
