We are the heirs of the founding family whose time-honored practice of forging has been essential to achieving, nearly a century later, the «Wichard» brand identity, represented by the products in this catalogue. Wichard has become the leading player in its field through the support of customers who have backed us from the very beginning, our partners and distributors, great skippers of the past and those of today (Tabarly, Colas, Jourdain, Joyon and others) and all keen yachtsmen. At a time when globalization is in full swing it is vital not only to adapt, but also to preserve the strengths which have ensured our existence for nearly a century. This is why we will continue to strive to provide an alternative in terms of quality and durability. On the occasion of our 90th birthday I would like to thank again our directors, employees, partners and customers for their continuing confidence and loyalty, and assure them of our unfailing determination to maintain our course.

2009 Wichard, a standard in the

sailing world

Highlights Company founded by Henri Wichard Subcontractor for drop forging Second factory and installation of an automatic forging line Development of range of stainless steel and titanium fittings created by Michel Boissonnet and tested by Bernard Moitessier, Eric Tabarly, Alain Colas and Philippe Jeantot; establishment of international distribution network

1919 19191972 1972

19731988

The company has evolved over the years from its origins as a forge in 1919 to the group it is today: establishment of two subsidiaries and a distribution network, as well as the acquisition of Profurl (specialised in sail furlers). The global leader in marine fittings and top ranking player for industrial customers, the group has remained true to its original specialty and ethic.

a Commitment Working at Wichard means combining the demands of the business with a passion for the job. Our production teams are united by a “quality first” attitude and their commitment to the company’s objectives. Marketing, engineering, sales and aftersales service departments: all the staff in Saint-Nazaire share the same passion for sailing. Their expertise stems from their experience.

Company acquired by Jean-Loup Becquevort

1989

Acquisition of Maillard (Saint-Malo) and launch of the first range of blocks

1994

Company purchased by a group of shareholders and Accasting holding company created

2002

Acquisition of Forginox, a cutlery forge in Thiers

2005

Consolidation of activities at one single location in an industrial zone and installation of a new forging press

2006

a Openness

2006

The company rapidly developed its export and industrial business. Encounters with other markets stimulated Wichard’s open-mindedness, curiosity and responsiveness, and fostered its creativeness.

Installation of a high speed machining facility for tooling production

a Responsibility Wichard designs, manufactures and markets its products. Even before the production phase, the company designs its own manufacturing tools. All safety products are manufactured in France by our teams using Wichard equipment. Wichard maintains control over its products all along the production chain, with the philosophy: to be a force in the sailing market through the inherent qualities of its products.


Wichard in figures  24 million T/O in 2007

Partners with professional demands

 60 % of T/O from exports

(65 countries)  190 employees  Over 700 referenced products in the

marine catalogue  Over 500 industrial clients

Wichard has created a network of close relationships within the sailing world. Sharing experience has borne fruit year after year: our products increase in quality and boaters are more comfortable.

 2,000 sales outlets in France,

40 distributors worldwide

• Developing new concepts hand in hand with professional racers. Ocean racing techniques change quickly. Racers approached our company early on for our skills in forming stainless steel. Through this long-standing cooperation, Wichard develops new ideas and designs customised parts specifically tailored to their requirements; some of these parts are released in the general sailing market. • Improving Wichard’s product offer with our customers. Wichard’s products are used on deck by major players. Some of our partners have been loyal for over 30 years. Boatyards, foreign dealers, equipment suppliers, riggers and sailmakers: part of our success is due to them.

 Eric Tabarly’s victory in the OSTAR Transatlantic Race set the scene for the expansion of amateur sailing in France in the 1970s: Wichard developed products for sailing and expanded its ranges.

Jean-Claude Ibos CEO of Wichard What makes Wichard stand out in its market? We are the only company in the world to offer such a broad range of forged deck fittings and to manufacture all our products at the same site (Thiers). Wichard is set apart by the quality and durability of its products. We are the market leader. Our competitors copy our stainless steel deck fittings! Our staff combines experience and youthfulness, know-how acquired over the years and modern methods. Wichard owes its recognition and its quality image to its 90 years of forging expertise. How do you view the company’s 90 years of experience? We have a certain tradition, therefore we benefit from a vast breadth of expertise to manufacture every product in our range. Despite the changes in ownership, Wichard has continued to move forward since the day it was founded. With an eye constantly open to trends and developments in sailing, our strength comes from our ability to innovate. Today Wichard is a recognised and an essential player in the sailing world.

1919 a

2009 Our expertise: between tradition and

innovation

By making manoeuvres simpler, “easy sailing” contributes to the growth of amateur sailing and sailing becomes a perfectly safe leisure activity. Since its founding, Wichard has designed, developed and manufactured products with two key objectives: to guarantee the sailor’s safety and comfort.

Forged products a guarantee of safety Why choose a forged product? Safety provides comfort and performance: forging enables tough parts to be designed by deforming heated metal. Wichard forges its parts by drop forging, using a forge hammer: an operation which involves forming a heated slug under pressure between two dies. This technique makes the structure of the metal homogenous and gives the part strength and elasticity. The parts are then finished and tested prior to being sold. In a foundry, the structure of the parts produced is random or heterogeneous: gas bubbles can become embedded in the metal, which reduces its strength. A machined product is shaped by removal of material: the structure of the metal is weakened locally. Forging guarantees the elasticity of the product, its resistance to corrosion and strength, while optimising the size of the parts.

From mastery of forging techniques... Our skills come from age-old knowledge, but our specialty is no longer a craft industry. Depending on the part being made, drop forging is either carried out by a specialist technician, for complex deck fittings, or using an automatic drop hammer, for simple parts. At the same time, our plant can meet numerous demands in terms of product feasibility. From our staff’s experience to training apprentices: our knowledge is passed on within the company.

... to cutting edge technologies Wichard is a bridge between the traditions of the forge and the performance requirements of modern sailing. Our St. Malo site, specialising in plastics technology, uses composite materials to produce our range of blocks, sticks and deck fittings. Plastics are not only stronger, but also combine good design, comfort and lightness. With a focus on innovative markets, always attentive to yachtsmen and in touch with great skippers, Wichard is THE standard for marine deck fittings.


In the race for innovation

Creation and innovation make headlines

For nearly 40 years Wichard has been following the development of techniques and regularly designing new products.

We protect every new idea or concept and register one to four patents each year: our 90 patents represent real wealth for the company. As a responsible manufacturer, Wichard monitors the materials used and applies quality control procedures. From idea to final product, this is a means of optimally controlling our parts design. We regularly receive awards:

When the company was taken over in 2002, the management team made innovation one of the key focus areas of its development. In Saint-Nazaire, an engineering department 100% devoted to marine applications designs new products in collaboration with the marketing, sales and after sales service departments. This method has been proven time and again to design efficient parts by taking every aspect of the final product into account:

! 2008, Pitmann Innovation Award: Gyb’Easy boom break @ 2007, Dame Award: Gyb’Easy boom break Special mention for “Deck equipment”

#

# 1998, Dame Award: Double-safety carabiner 1st prize for “Deck equipment” $ 1994, Dame Award: Harness tether 1st prize for “Clothing and protection”

 identifying and analysing the require-

ment: drafting of initial specifications  translating the requirement into

technical terms, then prioritising the product’s functions: approval of the specifications by the departments involved $

 seeking the best technical solutions

!

with the aim of bringing a new approach to product design (e.g.: the Gyb’Easy boom brake, naturally more functional and easier to produce)  using information technology to

control risks (e.g.: using 3D software to visualise constraints the product will undergo to optimise its shape)  manufacturing prototypes and

assessing their performance: tests on machines and at sea  moving to the mass production

after approval by the departments involved.

Francis Joyon Racing single-handed round the world on a trimaran What are a skipper’s expectations regarding deck fittings for an attempt to win the record for sailing single-handed round the world? The main criteria are the reliability of the equipment and its ease of use, but the weight of the parts also has to be taken into account. Why did you choose Wichard to fit out Idec? Wichard is renowned for its reliability. Not only is the weight/strength ratio favourable, but the breaking load level is also very good. I had already selected Wichard for my first round the world record four years ago: our collaboration goes back many years. Wichard has been developing its forged products for over 90 years: what do you think about the range? The products in the range can meet a variety of applications. From very big boats like Idec to smaller pleasure yachts, both professional and amateur sailors can find products that suit their specific needs.

Snatch

blocks

SNATCH BLOCKS Fitted to a pad eye or toe rail Wichard single handed operation, snatch blocks are highly useful for taking up a rope that is already reeved. The elastomer moulded cheeks make them shock and scratch-resistant. Each one is fitted with a snap shackle which allows them to move freely in any position. With its forged high-resistance stainless steel arm, the closing system is very strong. It can be opened very easily by pulling on the central plunger pin, as you would do with a normal snap shackle. STAINLESS STEEL SNATCH BLOCK This stainless steel snatch block can be used for any application. The design makes its positioning easier. The all stainless steel construction is a guarantee of safety and reliability.

Speedlink

the new trigger snap shackle

Release fid - anodised aluminium - Length: 15 cm

LIGHTWEIGHT: Speedlink was developed using finite element analysis software and has an optimised design. Its shape, cut-outs and ribs make it extremely light and give it one of the best strength/ weight ratios on the market. A MODERN DESIGN... Speedlink’s ultra-technical lines make it one of the most modern and efficient snap shackles available. • The special load-bearing surface of the swivel eye avoids excessive rope wear. • Its overall design prevents adjacent lines from jamming.

W•

NE

NE

... FOR EFFICIENT OPERATIONS • Easy opening: opening under load, whether manually or using the release fid, is easy and effortless thanks to the generous passage diameter and its optimised slopes. • No accidental opening: the special shape of the latch reduces inertia and avoids unintentional opening, especially under impact, while the distribution of stresses limits the effort needed to open it under load. 5

STURDY: Speedlink is forged in HR stainless steel and can bear exceptional working and breaking loads for a minimum weight.

Wichard stainless steel rings and adjusters are hot drop forged from 316L stainless steel in a single piece, not just bent and welded. Forging is a far superior process, because it maintains the structural integrity of the metal and increases working load limits in real world applications. Each part is polished and passivated to create a beautiful, yet durable surface that is highly resistant to corrosion. The “W” pentagon (plus 316L) mark is stamped into every part is your assurance of Wichard quality. Part #

Boom brake

Gyb’Easy « patented »

Gybing remains one of the most challenging operations on a sailing boat even for experienced sailors and can possibly generate injuries and material damage. An efficient and safe solution: Gyb’Easy the Wichard boom brake. CONCEPT Thanks to the frictions of the specific line passing over the boom break, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly. With Gyb’Easy, the gybe operations are safer, potential accidents reduced and without jerks. SETTINGS OF GYB’EASY The adjusment of Gyb’Easy is made thanks to the tension of the specialized line. 3 different positions exist for a perfect adaptation to the mainsail and wind conditions (see pictures). The more the line passes over the openings, the more the friction is increased and hence the brake efficiency. AN EASY INSTALLATION ON ALL KINDS OF BOATS The installation only takes a few minutes: a shackle is attached onto one of the boom eye straps. In order to fit with all the deck configurations, two different fittings can be implemented.The boom brake can be installed either on modern boats or old gaffers. Features :  Can be used on mainsail areas below 40 sqm.  Material: aluminium with anodisation.  Weight: 0.600 kg.  Part # : 7150 (livré avec le cordage).

Technical information WARRANTY All Wichard products are warranted to be free of defects in materials or workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase by the original end-user. Excluded from this warranty are: > Any product which has been improperly fitted. > Any product which has been improperly used or used in any application for which it was not intended. > Any product which has been improperly maintained. > Any product modified without a written approval from Wichard. > Any damage being a consequence from alteration, from ultraviolet light exposure or from the normal wear of products. The useful life of any products is determined by its utilisation and an appropriate factor of safety (see page 53). It must be distinctly assessed in each application. Thus no guarantee can be provided for product life, dynamic capacities or any other factor due to the variability in usage. Wichard’s liability is limited to the repair or replacement of the defective goods exclusive of any other repair. Responsibility and costs of handling, transportation and any custom duties and tariffs linked to the warranty claim are in any case borne by Wichard. CORROSION IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT All Wichard products are passivated. Corrosion attacks stainless steel and is always visible in the form of black coloured roughness. Although this is dangerous, it is rarely seen in current use, except in cases where martensitic (HR) steel is in total, prolonged immersion. What many people erroneously call corrosion, is really rust, or oxidation. This is due to outside causes. In the marine environment, stainless steel is subject to considerable aggressive forces and is not totally corrosion free. Re-passivation can be accomplished with a passivator such as Wichinox (see page 24) . All stainless steel demands a minimum of upkeep. STAINLESS STEEL Wichard uses top-quality grades of stainless steel in its products (see chart). The first type is a low carbon austenitic steel (316L), which offers good mechanical characteristics. They are non-magnetic steels and most of Wichard products are manufactured in this grade. The second (17.4PH) is martensitic steel (magnetic), which is referred to as high-resistance steel (HR).

WHY A WICHARD SHACKLE? A Wichard shackle is manufactured on a very old principal, forging. Wichard has perfected and machined this process down to the smallest detail. RELIABILITY AND HIGH QUALITY After the row metal bars are checked on chemical alloy and quality, the metal is heated to the right temperature to be forged. Then the metal is pressed in its new shape with great force by a hydraulic hammer. Due to this process the metal obtains an organized structure without any weakness. Because of this structure, called fibers, the metal object is not only very strong but also has an “elastic” property. Casted metal objects of the same design are less strong because the structure in the metal is not the same everywhere in the object. Next to this there is the chance that small air bubbles are enclosed during the casting. This causes a capital weakness in the casted object. Even objects machined from a block of metal can have weaknesses. Where the metal is machined into a curve the structure in the metal is broken and becomes a weak point in the object. When the object is overloaded it will break at this point. PERFORMANCE AND SECURITY Due to the technique of forging every object of the same design and shape has the same properties with a small tolerance of deviation. By controlling all important factors Wichard can guarantee an accurate breaking load and working load for each individual object. Wichard advises to respect carefully the Working Load (WL) indicated for each of its products. If a Wichard product is overloaded between the safe working load and breaking load the product will deform due to its “elastic” property. This gives the user an extra safety margin and shows when the product is overloaded. Deformed parts have to be replaced immediately preferably by a part in a larger size.


DEFINITIONS Working Load (WL) indicates the value of static load at which the product will still function without excessive friction or wear or permanent deformation of components. Breaking Load (BL) indicates the value of static load for which a major failure of one or some structural components of or the complete destruction of the product can be expected when new. Plastic components may split, rivets may give way, shackles or any other connection parts break and other metallic components may fracture. UNITS OF LOAD Our resistance values are shown in kilogramme-force (symbol: kgf or more usually kg), which is the force due to gravity sustained by a mass of 1 kg situated at the latitude of Paris. This unit of force is obsolete, and is not part of the SI international system of units, which links concepts of mass and weight. The unit of force used in the SI system is the Newton (N). To pass from the kilogramme-force to the Newton its value must be multiplied by g, the acceleration of gravity, which is 9.80665 m/ sec² at the latitude of Paris, or 9.80665 N (N = kg x m x s-2). In the fields where the kgf appears we should now use the decanewton (or dekanewton), daN: 1 kgf = 9.806 65 N = 0.980665 daN (1 daN = 1.019 716 kgf). Our test equipment measures loads in daN, but bowing to custom and for reasons of simplicity and safety, we still give values in kgs in our brochures and on our products.Our measured values have simply been converted into kgs. Please note that from 2010 we will abandon the kg to express our products’ resistance values in favour of the SI system unit, the daN. FACTOR OF SAFETY Before choosing or specifying a particular product, an appropriate factor of safety should be applied to Breaking Loads (BL) to suit each application. For many industrial and safety applications, and for some yachting application, a factor of safety greater than two (2) should be used or may be required by law or other regulations. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that an appropriate factor of safety is used, and it should allow fo safety implications, service life, fatigue (as may be caused by wave action, wind stress or repetitive cyclical loading), type of load, exposure to ultraviolet light, corrosion and stress corrosion (such as in high humidity or high chlorine environment). Even more attention is required when specifying blocks as other factors have to be taken into account such as rotary speed, deflection angle of the rope or the number of wire of the tackle (see page 26 of the present document). Note that a “Safe Working Load” is not specified as this is dependent on the factor of safety, which must be determined by the user relative to each application. IN ANY CASE, NEVER USE THE PRODUCTS OVER THE WORKING LOAD ! USEFUL LIFE The useful life of any products is determined by the above factors and must be assessed in each application. Thus no guarantee can be provided for product life, dynamic capacities or any other factor due to the variability in usage. In some jurisdictions government regulations require the replacement of rigging components within certain periods of time, usually after three or five years. You must ascertain whether any such regulations affect you and take appropriate steps if you are affected. MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION All your marine hardware, blocks and equipments must receive regular inspections to prevent any deformation, wear, cracks or corrosion. Even if your products have had little use, ultraviolet light exposure, wave action, humid or saline environment may cause damage that could affect quality or strength of the equipment. If, after inspection, you are in doubt about the integrity of one of some parts, it is the customer’s responsibility to replace the defective components or product to ensure their own safety. While every precaution is taken in the product design and manufacturing processes of our products to minimize the effects of corrosion or stress corrosion, appropriate preventive or corrective treatments must be carried out to the products after installation.
