The Steel Wire Rope

 .jpg• The Steel Wire Ropes
• The steel wire ropes has a high-strength and are manufactured from number of separate wires. Every single steel rope type and design has its own distinctive features, that is to be considered before choosing for specific operating condition. The rest of the steel wires are manufactured from the non-coated wire or from the zinc-coated wire.
The steel wire ropes divided into several categories:
By construction:
1. Single woven (spiral) consist of one, two or three concentric ends of the wire, woven into spiral.
2. Double woven consist of six strands woven in one concentric layer;
3. Triple woven consist of double woven ropes.

The wire ropes are classified as organic and metal by the core material:

  • • GOST 14954-80 – Metal;
  • • GOST 3081-80 - Metal;
  • • GOST 7667-80 - Metal;
  • • GOST 7669-80 -Metal;
  • • GOST 2688-80 - Metal;
  • • GOST 3070-80 - Metal;;
  • • GOST 3077-80 - Metal;;
  • • GOST 3071-80 - Organic (soft);
  • • GOST 3079-80 - Organic (soft);
  • • GOST 7665-80 - Organic (semi-soft);
  • • GOST 7668-80 - Organic (soft);
  • Functional classification:
  • • The application of wire ropes with various construction design:
  • • TK – the wire braced lightening protection ropes, temporary log driving fasteners* .
  • • LK-O – Elevator ropes on ships and lifts, towing ropes for rope roads.
  • • LK-R – The ropes for metallurgical cranes, mine lifters, excavators;
  • • LK-3 – The ropes for all industry sectors, apart from branches operating in tough conditions.
  • • LK-RO The ropes designed to operate in tough conditions.
