At last, the fanning out, or separation, of the ends of wire ropes when cutting them is a thing of the past. That's because thanks to its clever shearing cut technique, our wire rope cutter 8320-200 JL with cutting plates cuts wire ropes safely and quickly. Little effort is required to operate the innovative construction with the exchangeable plates, which is ideal for wire up to 750 N/mm² and wire ropes to 1800 N/mm².
Shearing cut, the cutting plates glide past
each other, separating the material
The wire rope is cleanly cut, retaining its
circular cross section.
It does not fan out (separate).
Notch cut, the blades press into the
material and create a notch.
The material is compacted and thus separated.
The wire rope is compressed, which causes it to lose
its circular cross section at the cutting points. This
prevents the wire rope...
The old seafaring ability to separate the rope into its individual strands so as to then braid them into a loop or lengthen the rope with another rope without knotting.
Fanning out - that is separating off into individual strands - is not wanted when cutting wire ropes. It is a very laborious business to splice wire ropes. That is why more up-to-date ways are available to incorporate loops in wire ropes. However, they require a smooth cut without any spliced strands.
