Non-rotating rope products are often an essential tool for many operations. Here you will find all relevant product information regarding our 17x7 non-rotating wire rope.
The characteristics of 17x7 non-rotating wire rope
All ropes that have been manufactured in a
standard way will often develop torque, which is a moment of rotational force. It’s not a fault, simply the way
the construction reacts while in operation.
However, sometimes this isn’t safe for some operations, as unpredictable twisting and rotating could cause great harm or damage. That’s why non-rotating wire rope has been specially designed. The outer rotational force of the rope will counteract the rotational force of the inner strands, leaving a wire rope that is resistant to rotating.
Another big benefit to this method of manufacturing is that the rope will maintain its lifting strength during an operation. A rotating rope could be subject to its wires and strands unravelling, causing it to lose its strength during an operation. This could obviously have disastrous consequences.
This particular product, the 17x7 non-rotating wire rope, is constructed from 18 bundles/strands of 7 wires of stainless steel. As well as having a good level of resistance to rotation, its stainless steel nature will also mean that it is resistant to corrosion and rust.
