Wire rope thimbles are used in wire rope assemblies to keep an eye from being crushed. When a wire rope assembly is terminated with an eye or loop at the end, a cable thimble is inserted to form the eye of the loop before the rope is secured. Steel thimbles (or stainless steel thimbles in high corrosive environments), offer added protection from wear and tear of direct contact and deformation of the eye, extending the service life of the Wire Rope or Wire Rope Sling.
Our wire rope thimbles are the best in quality standards and are available in many sizes. DIN 6899a thimble & g411 thimble, widely used for light-duty rigging applications, heavy-duty thimble g414, din6899b thimble, tube thimble is easy to install, gusseted tube thimble is a perfect addition to increase the integrity of your winch line. Manila thimble, round thimbles have been designed to replace blocks in applications where the line passing through the center is not constantly moving, synthetic rope thimbles can use in the marine towing industry, and the K2, K2-B, K3, and K15 Thimbles are ideal for outdoor applications.
Wire rope thimble is used to protect the wire rope, in conjunction with wire rope clips, grips or clamps to make reinforce loops (eyelet), to protect and extend the life of the wire rope slings by preventing the wire rope from fraying due to friction, and also by providing the eyelet with the structure to prevent eyelet deformation or knotting.
Generally available in light-duty and heavy-duty, light-duty is usually used for static applications such as permanent installations or applications that do not experience loads. light duty wire rope thimble is generally best used on traditional fibre ropes as they can withstand the same loads as fibre ropes. For example, US TYPE G411, and DIN6899A are the more common types of light duty. heavy duty wire rope thimble is usually used for applications that will experience loads and is ideal for applications such as lifting, rigging and applications that require frequent connection or disconnection of the thimble from other rigging equipment. ideal for applications where rigging equipment is frequently connected or disconnected.
