Hand Crimping Tools
HC1 – HC5
Sahm Splice hand tools are convenient for occasional splicing of wire rope and are particularly useful for use on suspended ducting, lighting, ceiling applications; display boards and varied other [non-critical] uses. There are four basic models; a special version can be produced upon request.
Where using plastic covered wire ropes it is advisable to remove the cover within the splice area in order to obtain maximum efficiency. On all splices ensure ‘dead end’ of rope protrudes up to half of one rope diameter after pressing. For Galvanised ropes use Aluminium Ferrules, use Copper or Stainless Steel Ferrules on stainless steel ropes.
For wire rope limits, refer to the relevant Ferrule instruction chart. Ferrules A2.5/Z3 and above require two or more ‘bites’ to derive optimum efficiency. For full ‘guaranteed’ splice efficiency the use of a Sahm Splice 250kN Hydraulic Hand Press & Swaging Dies are recommended.
