- Compress the barrel through SH dies set to make it adjacent to the rib, very close to the barrel.
- Overlap the compressions by 6.44mm.
- Make sure to die to close each compression.
- Now, slide the body on the forging so that the tongue ends against the washer and eye shoulder.
- At this stage, align the eye and tongue for proper orientation to mount the string (insulator).
- Inject the filler compound through the filler hole so that it comes out from the washer.
- Place the filler plug on a hole and strike with a hammer to peen the hole edge.
- With the help of the AH die set, make compression at the ‘start’ point, which is the closest to the tongue.
- Overlap compressions by ¼ inches.
- Now, press ‘stop’.
- Remember to die close to every compression.
- Using AH die, press compression dead end clamp body against ACSR conductor.
- Now compress the ‘start’ point and overlap compressions.
- As the last step, press the ‘stop’ point with die closure.
- The installation of a compression dead end clamp for ACSR conductors is complete.
