This Standard replaces GB/T 5973-1986, Cuneiform Connector for Use with Steel Wire
Compared with GB/T 5973-1986, the major changes of this Standard are as follows.
-- the “Foreword” is added;
-- the parameters of permissible stress and breaking load in Table 1 are modified.
The column of “cotter pin” is deleted;
-- the dimensions of B2, C1, C2 and H in Table 2 are adjusted;
-- the dimension of R5 in Table 3 is slightly adjusted, i.e. the wedge angle of wedge
is slightly greater than the wedge angle of wedge sleeve;
-- the sampling method is added in the inspection rules;
-- Annex A, Connection Method of Cuneiform Connector, is added.
Annex A to this Standard is informative.
This Standard was proposed by China Machinery Industry Federation.
This Standard shall be under the jurisdiction of National Technical Committee on
Hoisting Machinery of Standard Administration of China (SAC/TC 227).

Cuneiform Connector for Use with Steel Wire Ropes
1 Application Scope
This Standard specifies the types and dimensions, specifications, test method,
inspection rules, and marking, packaging, transportation and storage of cuneiform
connector for use with steel wire ropes.
This Standard applies to the cuneiform connector for use with round strand wire ropes
fixed or connected at the end as specified in GB 8918-2006 and GB 20118-2006, which
are used in all kinds of cranes (hereinafter referred to as cuneiform connector).

3 Types and Dimensions
3.1 Cuneiform connector
3.1.1 The types and dimensions of cuneiform connectors shall be as specified in
Figure 1 and Table 1.
3.1.2 Designation example
A cuneiform connector of specification 20 (the nominal diameter of steel wire ropes d >
18 mm ~ 20 mm) is designated as.
than the grey iron castings HT 200 specified in GB/T 9439-1988. When better materials
are used, the permissible load and breaking load in Table 1 may be increased
4.2 The surface of wedge sleeve and wedge shall be smooth; sharp edges and dead
heads shall be removed; and there shall be not defects which reduces the strength
significantly and obviously detrimental to the appearance (such as pores, cracks,
porosities, sand inclusions, casting scars and so on).
4.3 Wedge sleeve and wedge shall be annealed to eliminate their internal stress.
4.4 Wedge sleeve and wedge shall be treated for rustproofing.
4.5 Cuneiform connector shall be mounted properly in use. See Annex A for the
method for connecting cuneiform connector to steel wire ropes.
5 Test Method
5.1 During the first production, two groups of samples must be taken for the test of
the cuneiform connectors of the same specifications, materials and manufacturing
methods. During the test, first conduct preloading, and then gradually apply load to the
breaking load (see Table 1). During the loading process, the length of the free end of
steel wire ropes shall not become shorter. The test result. cracks of wedge sleeve and
wedge or any damage which affects their usability are not allowed. Both groups of
cuneiform connectors shall be as specified, and then the batch of cuneiform
connectors are acceptable. If one group in the two groups of cuneiform connectors is
not as specified, then take another two groups of samples from the batch of cuneiform
connectors to conduct the test; and if one more group fails to meet the requirements
or both groups fail to meet the requirements in the first test, then the batch of cuneiform
connectors are unacceptable.
5.2 In case of any change in the structural dimensions, material specifications and
manufacturing techniques of cuneiform connectors, the test shall be conducted for the
modified cuneiform connectors in accordance with the above-mentioned sample test.
6 Inspection Rules
6.1 Cuneiform connector shall be inspected by the supplier. The supplier shall ensure
each batch of cuneiform connectors are as specified in this Standard; and that they
shall be accompanied with the certificate of quality.
6.2 The double sampling method by the piece is used for the inspection. From one
batch of cuneiform connectors submitted for acceptance, take n1 groups of samples
randomly for each specification to conduct the inspection. If the number of
unacceptable groups is not greater than C1 groups, then the batch of cuneiform
