New generation of attachment swivels
19 March 2008
Tulsa, OK-based Tulsa Chain Inc. has introduced what it terms a new generation of attachment swivels with the Theipa Point. The swivel is manufactured from the patented grade 100 Enorm material, allowing users to increase the working load limit by at least 25% without increasing the swivel size. Easier assembly and dismantling is accomplished due to the forged hexagon on the body of the swivel. The crimped feature prevents the link from kinking. Corrosion protection is achieved through tough powder coat and electro galvanizing, which is also carried through to the internal areas.
Theipa Point has a new double rail ball bearing system that allows for easy swiveling under load. With indication of ball bearing wear, wear ring can be recognized even without measuring instruments.
All commercially available thread versions are available, from UNC to metric. Thread style and bolt lengths can be customized to meet user requirements. Female thread options are also available.
