Benefits of Wire Rope

Steel cable and heavy duty rope are ideally suited for demanding applications in construction, mining, oil and gas, and maritime operations, among others. Wire rope boasts a number of advantages over other materials, including:

  • High Strength: Wire rope is composed of multiple strands of wire that are woven together, giving it a high strength to weight ratio that is better able to withstand heavy loads and high stresses than materials like chains. Loads are distributed more evenly, giving steel wire rope excellent lifting capabilities.
  • Versatility: Wire rope can be made with different materials and coatings to suit specific applications. It comes in a wide range of diameters and constructions, depending on the number of strands and core type; the more wires that make up the nominal diameter, the more flexible the steel cable. While non-rotation resistant ropes that spin freely are the most common type, in some situations, uncontrolled spinning can cause problems. Rotation resistant ropes are constructed specifically to minimize twisting or spinning under load, improving stability and minimizing wear and tear.
  • Flexibility: Unlike rigid beams or bars, wire rope can bend and wrap around objects, conforming to different shapes — including curved surfaces. This makes it ideal for use on irregular shapes, like drums, and navigating tight spaces. Wire cable can also be cut to specific lengths more easily than chain, allowing you to customize it for specific applications.
  • Durability: Because it’s constructed from high-strength steel wires, wire rope is built to last. It can withstand harsh conditions, including extreme temperatures, and exposure to chemicals, salt water, and constant wear and tear.
  • Stability: Steel wire rope maintains its shape well under tension, where other materials might stretch or sag. This stability is essential for tasks like lifting or suspension.

To get the most value from your industrial cable and extend its lifespan, inspect it regularly for signs of wear, corrosion, broken wires, or other damage. Clean and lubricate the wire rope to protect it from rust, corrosion, and internal friction.
