Delve into the correct method of swaging a ball fitting to a mechanical cable, maintaining its strength, geometry, and chemical integrity. Cable assemblies comprising a swaged ball fitting and cable are ubiquitous. They're vital components in everything from robotic car door mirror adjustments to the end effectors of advanced surgical robots.
Mechanical cable ferrules, which can be referred to as swaged sleeves, or more often, cable crimp sleeves, can be applied to wire ropes or miniature cables using a hand tool or a machine press. But the success one has using hand tools to achieve the full rated strength that the cable assembly requires depends upon a variety of factors. In this read, Sava walks you through a step-by-step guide to using a hand tool to press a cable ferrule (or cable crimp sleeve) to a length of mechanical cable.
Cable crimp sleeves are among the most commonly used wire rope and mechanical cable fittings. Also, but lesser known as loop sleeves, cable crimp sleeves are popular because they are designed to serve two fundamental cable assembly functions: form a loop at one or both ends of a length of cable, and/or attach two separate pieces of cable together.
