Tecni-Cable, a one-stop shop for small diameter wire rope & fittings based in Somerset, has recently invested over £12,000 on a new state of the art splicing press to significantly increase the company’s wire rope assembly manufacturing capabilities by up to 40%.
Tecni-Cable purchased the 150-ton Swager from Talurit – renowned for producing mechanical splicing systems for wire ropes. The new machine will enable Tecni-Cable to manufacture large lifting equipment and slings with ease, place end fittings onto crane and elevator cables and produce larger stainless architectural and marine cables for individual design or specification.
The splicing press has been designed with flexibility and versatility in mind, and is able to increase the hexagon swaging (bending or shaping of cold metal) capability for stainless steel fittings of up to 10mm diameter wire rope. In addition, it can form looped and reinforced thimble eyes in up to 22mm diameter wire rope. The machine can be used horizontally, vertically, bench mounted or free standing, and an electronic foot pedal enables straightforward operation, as both hands can be free when swaging.
Trevor Heyworth, Managing Director at Tecni-Cable said, "We are thrilled with the new machine and the difference that it has made to the company’s continued commitment to improving our manufacturing capability and overall quality. Tecni-Cable has always been impressed by Talurit’s products and this new equipment is proving to be a huge asset to the company."
Tecni-Cable was established in 2005 and has grown significantly in its four years of trading. The company stocks large quantities of stainless and galvanised cables and cable tools and fittings. In addition it can manufacture wire rope assemblies to individual design or specification. Tecni-Cable is a market leading specialist in miniature PVC & Nylon coated stainless & galvanised wire rope products, and welcomes orders & enquiries from all business sectors including private individuals. Its key areas of expertise include supplying cable for balustrading, garden design, shop fittings, exhibitions and gym equipment.
