Wire Terminals are divided into two separate categories:
Roller Swage Terminals
Roller swaging is a professional cold forging process where the wire is inserted right to the hilt in the cylindrical tunnel of the terminal, and the two are compressed (crushed) together using a hydraulic roller press.
Swage terminals are available to purchase from Jimmy Green Marine but please bear in mind that they require specific Wiretechnik or Cabco Talurit hydraulic machinery and the requisite operating skills to fit them successfully to wire.
Typical swage wire terminals include the following configurations: Eye, Fork, Stud, Tee, StemBall, Toggle Fork and Strap Toggle Fork.
Swage Terminals are available to purchase from Jimmy Green from the following manufacturers: Petersen, Sta-Lok, Hasselfors, hamma™, OS/BSI, Navtec and Selden.
Also known as Compression, DIY, Hi Mod or Self-Fit Wire Terminals.
Swageless Terminals are designed to be fitted mechanically by any competent DIY amateur using simple hand tools.
The strength is delivered by the clever compression design.
Jimmy Green offer Petersen Hi Mod, Sta-Lok and Bluewave swageless DIY wire terminals from stock.
Swageless wire terminals generally include the following configurations: Eye, Fork, Toggle Fork, Stud, Connector, StemBall
Replacement cones, formers and wedges are also available for re-using serviceable fittings.
