A US Type drop forged turnbuckle is a type of turnbuckle that is commonly used in various applications, such as construction, marine, and industrial uses. It is made using a drop forging process, which involves heating a metal bar and then shaping it into the desired form using a die and a hammer. This process produces a strong and durable turnbuckle that can withstand heavy loads and extreme conditions.
The US Type drop forged turnbuckle typically consists of two threaded eye bolts that are connected by a threaded body. The body can be rotated to adjust the tension on the cables, ropes, or chains that are attached to the eye bolts. The turnbuckle is often zinc-plated or hot-dip galvanized to provide corrosion resistance and protect it from the elements.
US Type drop forged turnbuckles are available in various sizes and load capacities to suit different applications. They are commonly used in rigging and suspension systems, as well as in applications such as wire fences, shade sails, and guy wires for antennas and communication towers.
