SOCITEC® Wire Rope Isolators and Cable Mounts

wire rope isolator
  • The spring function is created by the elasticity inherent in the flexing of a
    cable preformed into a loop.
  • The damping function is the result of the relative friction between the cable's
    individual wire and strands.
  • Knowledge and control of these two highly non-linear functions guarantee
    controlled performance.
  • The cables, which are made of stainless or galvanized steel, are made to our
    own specifications and total traceability of all component materials is guaranteed.

SOCITEC Wire Rope Isolators are designed and manufactured to the strictest quality criteria.
