Ropeblock
Ropeblock is a leading manufacturer and supplier of sockets
for the wire rope industry. The major wire rope manufacturers,
fabricators, users and OEM crane manufacturers have
Ropeblock as their preferred socket supplier. Meeting all the
standard dimensional requirements for this type of product,
Ropeblock sockets have been calculated, engineered, tested
and discussed with our customers. In effect creating a new
standard of quality by evolution.
Our range of sockets include open and closed spelter, open
and closed wedge, short bow (mooring, towing etc.) and fast
connector sockets, which are distributed either directly from
our main plant in Oldenzaal, The Netherlands, or through one
of our distributing partners in all parts of the world.

Ropeblock, your partner for standard


and custom designed sockets
Research and design
Ropeblocks engineering department is continuously researching
the limits and limitation of socket design, material usage etc.
These extensive studies have led to industry leading designs,
and technical publications in industry recognized and trendsetting magazines.

Material
Our standard socket range is available in cast alloy steel with
high mechanical properties. The shortbow range (SBS, pg 11)
is made of high alloy cast steel with extremely high mechanical
properties. All our sockets are suitable for usage in a sub-zero
temperature environment. Materials meet or exceed the
requirements of an impact value of > 42 Joule / -20oC Charpy-V.

Testing
Sockets can be proof loaded in accordance with the Ropeblock
testing program, this implies testing up to 30% of the MBL
of the socket. Higher proof loads are available upon request.
In house access to a vertical socket test bed, as well as a
horizontal general-purpose test bed is available to ensure
fast reaction time.

Quality
The Quality Management System of Ropeblock has been certified
in accordance with ISO 9001:2008. This, together with a
dedicated team of QA/QC professionals, ensures a consistent
quality of product and service.

Open and Closed Spelter Sockets


Alloy cast steel range with high mechanical values, for low
temperature use. For wire rope diameter 8 - 130 mm (1/4 - 5),
socket pin locked by split or nut. Optional is a flange connection
for use with a bend stiffener.

Short Bow Sockets


The ultimate socket for dynamic loads. Towing lines, anchor
lines, chain-rope connections used by major offshore contractors.
High-alloy cast steel with extremely high mechanical values.

Fast Connector Sockets


Specially designed for fast reeving in
Mobile and Crawler Crane applications.

Spin Resistant
Connector available

Fast connector sockets have 100%


efficiency. Sockets and buttons are
re-usable.

Open and Closed Wedge Sockets


Quick detachable socket range for wire rope diameter
7 - 86 mm (5/16 - 3-3/8). Basket and wedge in alloy cast steel.

Open and Closed Swage Sockets


Swage sockets are recommended for use with 6x19 or 6x37
IWRC regular lay ropes and also suffice for galvanized bridge
rope. They are not recommended for use with fiber core ropes.

Carbon Steel Sleeves


These sleeves are an excellent choice for flemish eye rope
terminations. Note that proper swaging practices are the sling
manufacturers responsibility.

Required resin volume for


socketing wire rope terminations

Proper spelter socket terminations have an efficiency equal

in the tables.
n

Please read the instructions of the resin manufacturer

supplier.
n

Always remove any dirt and grease from the wire rope broom
and socket basket.

Ensure that the broomed wires are evenly spaced in the basket
and that the wire and basket are aligned with each other.

When using white metal or zinc, do not preheat the socket to


more than 300C (570F).
Make sure the base of the socket is properly sealed. This to
prevent resin leakage, which may cause voids.

Never use an assembly before the resin is fully


hardened.

Warnings
Always carry out a visual inspection
before using a socket and pin.
n Never use a part showing cracks.
n Do not side-load a socket.
n Repairs are not allowed, for any
repairs contact your supplier.
n Never shock-load a socket.
n

page 6

Socketing should always be carried out by a qualified person.

Due to the continuous improvements of our products, we


reserve the right to change specifications accordingly.

Warning and application instructions


Wedge Sockets
n

Always mount the loaded part of the wire in the centre line
of the pin (see figures).

Secure the dead end with a wire rope clip.

Do not attach the loaded wire to the dead end.

The dead end should have a length of 6 times the wire


diameter with a minimum of 150 mm.

Inspect after the first load that the wire rope and wedge are
correct

fully seated.
n

A load may slip if the connection is not properly installed.

Inspect the connection regularly.

The efficiency of a 6 and 8 strand wire rope/wedge socket


connection is 80% of the minimum breaking load of the wire
but limited to the minimum breaking load of the socket (MBL).

Swage Sockets and Sleeves


n

Swage sockets are recommended for use with 6x19 or 6x37


IWRC regular lay ropes.

They also suffice for galvanized bridge rope.

They are not recommended for use on fibre core ropes or


long lay ropes.
n

Proper swaging methods must be followed for all swage

incorrect

sockets and sleeves.


Multiple progressive pressings are required to prevent flash,
which could develop into a permanent mark or possibly a
crack in the sleeve.
n

A light oil lubricant should be applied to each die and wiped


clean after swaging.

For swaging practice details contact the die manufacturer.

Properly applied swage sockets have an efficiency rating of


100%. This rating is based on the catalogue strength of wire
rope.

Caution: Proper swaging practices are the sling manufacturers


responsibility.

Swage sockets are recommended for use on 6x19 or 6x37 IWRC regular lay ropes and also satisfactory on galvanized bridge rope.
They are not recommended for use on fiber core ropes.
Before using swage sockets with other type lay, construction or grade of wire rope, it is recommended that the termination be proofloaded to prove
the adequacy of the assembly.
Sockets properly applied have an efficiency rating of 100% based on the catalog strenght of the used wire rope. Forged from special steel for cold
swaging.
