American Halo Launches New Hydraulic Wire Rope Swager

American Halo, a domestic manufacturer of hydraulic wire rope swager machines, announced recently its new swager. Founded in 2005 by Jason and Justin Fetter, American Halo sees swagers as its new way to bring value to the wire rope and cable industry.

A “swager” is a machine, as termed in the wire rope industry, that affixes end fittings onto wire rope and cable. The fittings can be swage sockets, flemish eye sleeves, threaded studs, oval sleeves, pin eyes, ball shanks, double balls, button stops or ferrules, and choker ferrules, to name a few. Swagers apply forces to cold form end fittings between a set of dies, in order to “swage” or compress the fittings onto the wire rope or cable to form a permanent termination on the wire rope or cables.  Capable of swaging fittings onto cables or wire rope, American Halo swagers are Made in USA and built for fast and safe swaging.

American Halo introduced to the market its 30 ton swager. “We feel our swaging tools will bring added safety and efficiency to the wire rope and cable industry,” commented Justin Fetter, Vice President of Operations and founder of American Halo. “Our next swagers being developed will be for larger diameter rope and geared toward the heavy lifting industry,” Fetter continued.
