Common Types of Steel Swages—Let Western Wire Products Co. Know About Your Requirements for Custom Steel Swages

Western Wire Products Company can fabricate a wide range of complex wire forms including custom steel swages utilizing a range of steel and Stainless Steel grades as well as market sector specifications.  Whether you need steel swages or you need swaging as a secondary operation, we can likely accommodate your production request.  Depending upon your fabrication requests, we can utilize our multi-slide, four-slide, and CNC production machinery to create steel swages.  Examples of wire swaging includes extruding the wire through draw benches, spindle machinery and equipment to finalize primary wire fabrications.  Additionally, general wire swaging frequently involves drawing the extruded wire through multiple dies, mandrels in the case of hollow wire forms (e.g. wire form tubing), as well as tagging machinery, spindles, multiple rollers, annular rollers and wedges to finish the job.  We can also offerchamfering or other services to produce cuts and eyes if needed.

Some of the most common types of steel swages and other use applications include mechanical fastener options such as aircraft swages (e.g. “eye” or “fork” types are common), balls (e.g. single or double Shank Balls), cylindrical terminals, eyes, gate hardware/fasteners (gate terminals), guards or similar stampings, hand swages (various types), jaws, steel swage nipples (various types of wire form designs including bull plugs, couplings, pipe fittings, for pipes, and tube/tubing nipples), rail swages/rail stud swages, right hand/left hand and even mini stud swages, studs/eye studs, or even swage threaded studs.  Additionally, other very common types of steel swages including or a wide range of types of machine swage fittings, marine swages (e.g. eye or jaw types), marine rigging swages including ferrules/ferrule swages (e.g. for rope/steel ropes), swage sleeves, steel swage terminals and fittings, “T” plates, “T” terminals, toggles or wire forms with toggles, turnbuckles, wall mount and hand swage designs, and many other types of products.

Stainless Steel swages are used in a wide variety of market sectors.  Stainless Steels may be finished for sanitary use applications (e.g. Stainless Steel swages fabricated with secondary operations including passivation), and these range from agri-business uses and applications, to agriculture and food processing machinery, food storage, cooling, freezing and transportation equipment, as well as for medical device manufacturing, to name just a few.

Other market sectors frequently require mechanical fasteners and other types of steel swages. The use of steel swages in Plumbing & Electrical, HVAC manufacturing and repair, Maintenance and Repair Operations (MROs), construction (i.e. architectural uses, and for fastening railing, balustrades, guards/fencing, etc.), Aerospace Hardware supply, the automotive sector, marine hardware and supply/marine rigging/swage wire rope fittings, general hardware supply and resale, other markets, manufacturing and assembly, and even industrial uses are common.
