If you need to lug loads weighing up to 35.6 tonnes, then this 6x36 compacted wire rope with a 20mm diameter will be a suitable investment. The compaction process gives the external surface of the rope a rounder, smoother finish than you will find on non-compacted alternatives, which also assists with reducing wear and tear, as mentioned earlier.
The slimmer and smoother qualities of the 20mm compacted rope means that it could be the ideal choice if you are going to use a sheave and pulley system, as the rope will glide through easier. Additionally handling the steel cable is much easier.
Compacted wire rope is narrower yet stronger than equivalent ropes of the same size, so it is a reliable and efficient investment.
There is a huge array of wire rope to choose from in today’s market with different constructions and fittings to choose from.
You can make buying compacted wire rope even easier when you add fittings and fixtures to your order. Rope Services Direct will deliver a full suite of high quality products, adapted to match any request you might have. We can make up a custom wire rope assembly with your own specifics.
