Which construction of wire rope do I need?

Posted by Miami Stainless on 22-Sep-2020 10:18:00

Wire Rope consists of multiple strands of wire, twisted together, sometimes compressed, to form a flexible mechanism for supporting, rigging, lifting or hoisting.

Wire rope is available in various types and constructions, each having specific uses. Different configurations of the wire and construction will provide different benefits for the specific lifting application, including:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Crushing resistance
  • Fatigue resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Rotation resistance

Hence it is important to select the wire for the intended applications and the necessary to see what properties are required for the rope to be used correctly. Properties such as breaking strength, flexibility, resistance to bending fatigue, anti-friction, resistance to deformation, non-rotation and anti-corrosion.

Our aim is to provide you with the knowledge and understanding of the components so that you select the correct wire rope for your chosen application.
