The Differences & Benefits of Swaged vs. Shuttled Molded Conduit Fittings
Cable assemblies consist of two main components: a cable, the tightly wounded bundles of wire, and a conduit, the protective tubing or sleeve that surrounds the cable. Many applications require a conduit to preserve the integrity of the wire bundles from repeated push-pull and pull-pull cycles. The conduit is trapped in place within the assembly using end fittings.
There are a number of processes available that are used to affix end fittings to a conduit. In this paper, we will focus on swaged and shuttle molded conduit fittings. During design and selection of the conduit assembly, users have a wide range of options to choose from and should consider the component’s manufacturing process, geometry, performance characteristics and material type.
