Compacted wire rope has been designed with strength and resistance in mind. While similar to our standard steel cable in its initial construction, the finishing touches to this product give it a unique set of qualities and benefits. This page details more information on our 8x25 compacted wire rope.
Rope with the numbers 8x25 has 8 bundles/strands of 25 wires making up its construction. The difference with compacted rope is that it has been fed through a roller or special machine afterwards, to compact each of these strands and bundles closer together.
This compacted nature adds an extra layer of strength and resistance to this equipment. As the space between strands and bundles has been reduced, there is less friction and abrasion damage.
It also has a good level of resistance against bend fatigue, as well as being easier to handle thanks to its smooth nature. It can withstand shock loading, has less constructional stretch, and have a much lower level of wire breakages.
