Simple machines and mechanisms can help speed up project time and reduce danger risks. While only a small component of your operations, a cable pulling grip is always essential. When searching for the right grips for the job, make sure you check for the following criteria:
All Teeth Are in Good Shape
A cable pulling grip's "workhorse" component is its gripping jaw. The jaw's teeth need to be in perfect shape especially if you're using straight pulling grips. A poor set of teeth can increase the risk of danger as the grip will not be as strong. High-quality grips from AMAC guarantees you will never face this problem thanks to our rigorous hands-on testing of all our products.
Any cable pulling grip has a tension and grip limit. Therefore, it's important to take note of your project's cable materials and whether your grip is compatible with them. For example, it is impractical to use a high-tension grip on a fiber optic cable because it can break the fiberglass. However, you can't use a low-tension grip on copper and steel cables. AMAC can advise you on which grips will suit your project best to avoid any risk of danger and guarantee high-quality project results.
A Set of Varied Eyes
Pulling eyes can help cables swivel, flex, or break away. These functions are useful in a variety of situations. For example, cables that need to go through many bends can use swivels to avoid cable tangling or twisting to reduce damage. Flexible eyes also allow the cable to be pulled around corners and bends. AMAC can help you find the right pulling eyes that will help you avoid material breakage.
