8-strand Compacted Wire Rope

8 strand Compacted Wire Rope Compacted • 8-Strand • Inner Plastified Wire ropes

This wire rope belongs in the non rotation resistant classification but its strands are compacted and it is used mainly as luffing wire rope on high efficiency ship & harbour mobile cranes, container bridge cranes, overhead travelling hoists, mineral loading cranes.

It is an 8-strand construction, very flexible and suitable for use on many crane brands installed on board.

These wire ropes are usually produced as drawn galvanized and internally and externally lubricated, which makes them corrosion resistant and durable against the various harsh marine environment factors.

8-strand Compacted Wire Rope Additionally, these ropes are produced with an extruded inner plastic layer, which ensures water impermeability and elimination of point contact between wires & strands of the inner and outer layers.

This extra protection from corrosion and inner contact, prolongs the useful service life of the ropes.

Attention must be paid in the installation of the new rope on board, its running-in (bedding in) period and load and the inspection before and after every usage.

Diligent production processes, raw material selection and quality control in all stages of production ensure a long and trouble free service life.

Compacting technology reduces the size and increases the breaking strength. Please read more on advantages of compacted wire ropes.

Main advantages

  • Extremely resistant & flexible 8­-strand ordinary lay or Lang's lay rope with inner plastification, suited as luffing & hoisting rope.

  • Long service life due to inner plastification and reduced rope abrasion, resulting from the smooth rope surface, also exhibiting excellent flexural fatigue properties

  • Resistance against corrosion due to galvanized wires , the permanent lubrication and inner plastification

  • Reliability and safety in operation as a result of the highest breaking forces, especially provided by the compaction technology

  • Exceptional resistance against shock loads and vibrations due to the radial­ & elastic structured rope and inner plastification

  • Optimal spooling characteristics due to high resistance against radial deformations

  • Reduced maintenance effort due to intensive lubrication in each production step

  • Trouble­-free operation
