Crimping press sleeves (ferrules) for "Nicopress" system made of galvanised copper, extra heavy design for stainless steel ropes. Two sizes:
Used in exceptional cases for the aesthetic and more complex attachment of wire ropes to wall mounts with a wall distance greater than 4 cm, as an alternative to a (detachable) mounting with cable clamps. Such ferrules are also suitable for forming branching points (y-junctions) and for connecting wire ropes. Please refer to our general information on rope clamps, etc.. for further support if needed.
Preferably with Nicopress crimping pliers. Each sleeve requires three pressings. The ferrules are gripped with the second / M-press track (3 mm rope) or the first / P-Press track (with 4 mm steel cable) of the special crimping pliers, and pressed in this position. Press first in the middle.
For pretensioned cables whose distance to the wall is less than 4 cm, the insufficient space usually makes it impossible to press the sleeves together correctly (pliers can't fit into space). Press sleeves once crimped cannot be undone or reused, and the cables cannot be tightened at these attachment points. Incorporate a tensioner (turnbuckle) in the cable path if necessary.
