COSA SIGNIFICA IMPIOMBARE?

Dividi il testo qui
L'impiombatura è un modo per terminare una cima o per  unirne due estremità senza utilizzare un nodo. Oltre ad essere ingombrante e sgradevole, un nodo, anche se realizzato correttamente, può causare una significativa perdita di resistenza di na cima. La nostra équipe di impiombatori ha oltre 150 anni di e esperienza combinata a una profonda conosenza. Da Marlow, offriamo a tutti i nostri clienti un servizio completo e realizziamo assemblaggi personalizzati, fasce e stroppe. Per i marinai e per i proprietari di barche, consigliamo sempre di utilizzare il l'attrezzista locale locale di fiducia per selezionare e installare le tue cime. Trova qui l'attrezzista Marlow piû vicino a te. Per coloro che desiderano ipiombare le proprie cime, abbiamo prodotto una guida completa di splicing e video che descrivono alcuni metodi di splicing più comuni 

 For those wishing to splice their own ropes, we have produced a comprehensive splicing guide and range of splicing tutorials (scroll down to view) detailing a range of splicing methods. For hands-on splicing demonstrations, visit the Marlow stand at any of our shows and exhibitions throughout the year, or sign up to attend a Marlow Rope-Show held across the UK at sailing clubs once per month.

SPLICING TOOLS

When learning to splice, the right tools will make the job much easier. Below is a list of common splicing tools available through your Marlow dealer 

Swedish fids are used primarily for 3 strand and multiplait splicing. They also aid Marlowbraid and D2 Racing splices. 

Braid on Braid Fid Set – Selma fids are used primarily for doublebraid, D12 and D2 splices, but can also be used to aid 3 strand and marlowbraid splices. 

Splicing Needles – Large and small used for Marlowbraid, D2 Racing. Can also be used for the doublebraid splice. 

Excel Control Splicing needle – Used primarily for Excel Control and Excel D12 2.5 and 3mm. 

Other tools and equipment - Sharp knife and/or scissors, tape measure, permeant marker pen, splicing (or insulation type) tape, strong point on your work bench, hot knife or flame for sealing the rope.

SPLICES VS KNOTS

Dividi il testo qui
giunzioni: Most Marlow ropes can be spliced, this is normally the preferred method of termination. A good splice using the recommended method should not reduce the strength of a rope by more than 10%. 

Knots: A knot will reduce the strength of the rope, sometimes very significantly. This loss is caused by the tight bends and compression found in any knot. The amount a rope will be weakened will depend on the knot, type of rope and the material from which it is made but can be up to 60% 

Dimensioni dell'occhio: Wherever possible the angle formed at the throat of a splice when it is loaded should be 30 degrees or less. This means that the length of the eye when flat must be at least 2.7 times the diameter of the object over which the eye is to be used and the distance from the bearing point to the throat when in use should be at least 2.4 times the diameter. Some materials like Aramids and HMPEs (Dyneema) will require a larger eye with an angle at the throat of 15 degrees or less.

Excel R8 Taper – Excel R8 
A Taper splice is useful in areas of rope that don’t require handling, for reducing friction and when needing to change the diameter of the line. Marlow’s high performing Excel R8 is the perfect rope for this type of splice available in 4-8mm diameters either working as a halyard or high performance sheet working well in ratchet blocks.
Skill rating: Intermediate 3/5
