There are several ways to close the ends of the tow rope, most commonly using sockets, tow bars and wedges. Different types of sockets are grouped into open socket groups, closed sockets, wedge sockets and swaging sockets, all of which are available in Hardwire.
The wirelock is used to fix the wire rods into the sockets.
Today, most wire tops are wedge-shaped. The reason for using this type is easier installation and easy switching during repairs.
The most important reason for using a spring in the wire rope head is to balance pulling in the wire rope.
Lack of equal elasticity in the wire rope causes uneven erosion in the grooves and the difference in the diameter of the tow rope, which causes the rotor’s frustration to strain gaps. .
