On paper there are a few key advantages to note for this particular wire rope. Load capacities reach as high as
80,257kg, which makes it a dream for heavy duty lifting applications. The compacted 6x36 strand configuration also helps with breaking load, allowing this rope
to withstand forces of up to 787kN.
Bend fatigue, wear and abrasion resistance are further advantages of the compacted wire rope. Additionally they are smaller in diameter than a standard wire rope which can lift the same weight. This makes the compacted rope great for utilizing with sheaves and pulleys as they are constantly being pulled and passed over narrow surface areas. The compacting process leaves a lovely smooth finish on the outside surface, this makes it easier to handle although gloves are still advised.
