Plymouth, MA – November 3, 2011 – Suncor Stainless, Inc. has grown their stainless steel machine swage fittings line with the release of the swage jaw, plain ball, single shank ball and double shank ball. This new line includes 43 new stainless steel swage fittings and adds to Suncor’s already large line of machine swage hardware.
Suncor began in-house production of Mil. Spec. swage terminals in 2010 after joining the United States Government’s Quality Manufacturer’s List (QML). This production included forks, eyes, studs, and shank balls that are made of 304 stainless steel. At this same time, Suncor started to manufacture a grade 316 version of the parts that are dimensionally alike. “The need to keep 316 parts that are similar to the Mil.Spec. parts is due to customer demand,” said Jim Storrer, Engineering Manager at Suncor Stainless. “Customers want the dimensional accuracy and similarity to the Mil. Spec. swage fittings, but not the stringent control and higher price.”
The 43 new swage fittings are made to fit a vast selection of wire rope sizes that include 1/32” to 1/2”. Along with being precision machined from 316 stainless steel, having strong corrosion resistance and being reliable, they are most commonly used for marine, rigging, and any other wire rope applications. Suncor Stainless has made stainless steel hardware for professionals and do-it-yourselfers since they have been in business. “We have introduced an economical and more corrosion resistant alternative to the Mil. Spec. swage components that we currently offer,” says Patrick Striebel, President of Suncor Stainless. “These parts are for our customers that need a dimensionally similar component, but do not require the Mil. Spec. certification.”
Throughout the United States there are many Suncor Stainless dealers that offer these products and high quality hardware. To find a dealer near you, contact a Suncor Sales Representative by calling (800)394-2222 or by visiting the Suncor Stainless Website.
