Swivels are a type of rigging hardware used to connect ropes, chains, and other lifting equipment to loads in various industrial and construction applications. They consist of a body with a rotating connection point, which allows for easy rotation of the load during lifting and prevents twisting or tangling of the lifting line. Swivels are typically made of durable materials such as steel or alloy.
One of the main advantages of swivels is their versatility, which allows them to be used in a wide range of applications, including construction, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and more. They can handle various weight capacities and sizes of loads, and can be used in both vertical and horizontal positions.
Swivels are also easy to operate and maintain, which reduces downtime and increases efficiency. They also have a high resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and heavy loads, making them suitable for use in harsh environments.
Investing in high-quality swivels is crucial for ensuring the safety and efficiency of lifting operations and also helps to reduce costs associated with frequent replacements and maintenance. It can also help to improve productivity and reduce the risk of injury. Swivels are available in different types such as eye type, jaw type, and more, to cater to different lifting applications.
