Cable Fitting System

The rope end fitting developed by Werner Sobek Design was optimised according to the principles of lightweight construction: Minimisation of stress concentrations as well as recessing of areas subject to little stress. In addition, the system was made more flexible through the interchangeability of individual parts.

Optimised According to Principles of Lightweight Construction

A unique feature of the rope end fitting developed by Werner Sobek Design is the possibility of applying the rope pretension through a specially developed pretensioning device that engages in the stress relief openings of the fork fitting.
