Rigging components

Main rigging components for the cargo lifting equipment:

The clips, are designed for connection of wire ropes and making the eyes on the wire rope ends. The clips consist of the body and moving part (plate, clamp, bracket etc.) which press the two ends of the wire rope to the body. The pressing force is made by nuts with a certain metal on metal friction coefficient.

The shackles are used in the static and lifting systems. The shackles fulfill the function of dismountable connections for chains, wire ropes and other devices.

Turnbuckles - are special devices which are used for tension of steel wire ropes and cables. Due to the using of the turnbuckle it is possible to change the tension force. The turnbuckles are most often used during the handling operations when it is required to ensure the certain tension force of the wire ropes for fixing of the transported or installed equipment or other goods. Originally the turnbuckles were invented and used for connection of metal and wooden constructions of different type.

Eye nuts. The main area of their usage is the lifting, holding and lowering of the cargo during the handling operations or installing of the constructions. Eye nuts with inside metric screw thread are connected with screws, bolts, threaded rods and other elements with corresponding metric screw thread. The eye nuts are most widely used in machine-building, agricultural industry and construction.

Eye bolts are very important during the lifting, holding and lowering of the cargo during installation or handling operations. They are most often used nowadays in the machine-building, agricultural industry and construction areas. Eye bolts is one of the universal elements of connection with other elements like chains or wire ropes. During the operation of the eye bolts it is important to take the side force lowering coefficient into consideration..
