Thimbles are fixed to the ends of our steel wire ropes with Talurit-type conical ferrules; the ferrules are fitted by cold pressing in compliance with European standards EN 13411 and DIN 3093.
• The inspection hole on the ferrule is useful for the rope manufacturer for tests and inspections, but not necessarily for the end user (EN 13411-3). It is remotely possible for a rope to slip from a ferrule, however before this happens the rope thimbles will already have changed shape.
• Regular checking of the thimble shape together with rope strand condition tests are an excellent guarantee of safety.
