Wire Rope Thimbles
Wire rope thimbles are used in unison with wire rope clips and swage sleeves when forming an eye to protect the wire rope from abrasion, crushing, pinching and fraying that can result from direct contact between the wire rope and whatever attaching mechanism you are using. Wire rope thimbles offer support for the wire rope and greatly increases the service life of wire ropes and wire rope slings by lessening the force exerted on the wire rope by overly aggressive bends in the cable.
Wire rope cable thimbles are available in a variety of materials and designs:
- Standard Duty
- Heavy Duty
- Zinc Plated
- Stainless Steel
Zinc plated, galvanized and stainless-steel thimbles have industry leading corrosion resistance and can therefore be used in harsh working environments. In addition, more specialized wire rope thimbles are available, such as choker thimbles, solid wire rope thimbles, and wire rope thimbles with built in clamps.
