This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements for swage terminals and the securing of such terminals by a swaging process to carbon steel rope conforming to EN 12385-4 and EN 12385-5, spiral strand rope conforming to EN 12385-10 and stainless steel stranded rope. This European Standard is not applicable to spiral rope incorporating full lock wires - see EN 12385-10 -, nor ropes with coverings and /or fillings (see 3.6.3 of EN 12385-2:2002+A1:2008). This European Standard is applicable to swaged terminations that have a terminal efficiency factor, KT, of at least 0,9 and are used as part of a wire rope accessory such as a sling, or wire rope assembly that performs a raising, lowering, hauling or supporting function on lifting machinery. This European Standard is applicable to terminals of the following types that are made of carbon or stainless steel: - open swage socket; - closed swage socket; - swage terminal with thread; - swage terminal end stop. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to swaged terminations, when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable (see Clause 4). This European Standard applies to swaged terminations which are manufactured after the date of its publication. This European Standard is not applicable to swaged terminations used for anchoring ropes to winch drums.
