Loop Back SOLID Thimble Splice (S 412 Thimble)
This splice is fabricated by forming a loop eye and pressing an aluminum sleeve over both rope parts. The strength depends 100% upon the integrity of the pressed sleeve.
Unirope fabricates these splices according to the strict European standard EN 13411, using original specification sleeves and dies as specified in that standard.
With Crosby Cast Solid Thimble and EN 13411-3 Aluminum Sleeve. Thimbles to DIN 3091.
Solid Thimbles are used where the sling (or rope) is connected to a straight pin. This makes an excellent permanent installation. Within certain limitations we can increase or bush the bore hole, or we can mill down dimension ‘H’ to fit a narrower slot. These thimbles are mainly used on crane ropes.
This method is used for 8-, 9-, and 10 strand as well as non-rotating rope types (19×7, 19×19, 24×7, 34×7), and when Tri-Flex® and Gator-Flex® slings are requested with Thimbles at the ends.
