Alps Wire Rope Introduces Petersen’s P400, the Mobile Solution for Swaging and Testing – Will Show at ConExpo

Alps Wire Rope Corporation introduces Petersen’s P400, the mobile solution for swaging and testing of wire-rope terminations and crane cable repairs on‐site.

The Petersen swaging and testing machine allows the correct pressing of swage sockets onto wire‐rope. After fitting the socket, the wire‐rope can be gripped and a proof‐load applied – all on the same machine. The convenient design means proof load tests can be carried out on lifting assemblies without the need for external equipment. The comparatively low weight and compact design of the Petersen swaging and testing machine means assembly can be done on‐site.

For example, using this equipment it is possible to re‐terminate and proof‐load test a crane cable which is still attached to the crane, at the worksite. This revolutionary system offers enormous savings to offshore, mobile and tower crane operators by minimising down time due to rope repairs. The crane rope buttons Petersen supply can be shipped with an optional swivel‐eye to prevent problems associated with cable torsion during the reeving process.

The machine will be on display at the Alps Wire Rope stand at CONEXPO 2017 at booth G73125.

Alps Wire Rope is the appointed North American distributor for UK‐based Petersen Stainless Rigging. Petersen is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of quality‐assured stainless steel rigging and lifting equipment for the offshore, aerospace, nuclear, lifting, architectural and marine industries.
