Basic Components of Wire Rope
Every wire rope has three basic components: the wires, strands and core. The basic unit of wire rope is the wire. Our wire ropes are made of steel wires, which finish with Galvanized and Ungalvanized surface. The main core of our wire rope is an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC), which around by the strands and normally having the construction of 7 x 7 wires. The strand construction is the number and arrangement of wires in each strand.
Wire Rope Classification
The wire ropes are identified by classifications based on the number of strands and nominal number of wires in each strand. The most common classifications of wire ropes that we offers are: 6x 19, 6x36 and 19x7.
6 x 19 class provide an excellent balance between fatigue and wear resistance.
6 x 36 class is primarily designed to be the most important for the fatigue resistance.
19 x 7 class is a special class of rope designed to resist the tendency to spin or rotate under load.
The size of a wire rope is the diameter of the circle which encloses all of the wires. When measuring wire rope it is important to take the greatest distance of the outer limits of the 'Crowns' of two opposite strands. A measurement across the valleys will result in incorrect lower readings.
