6 Strand Compacted Rope
PowerStrand PRO6C Compacted Wire Rope
PRO6C Compacted wire rope is offered in 6x26WS and 6x31WS for increased flexibility. To produce a compacted strand a conventional strand is drawn through a set of compacting dies and rollers. During this process the strand reduces in diameter and the outer surface becomes smooth. This creates a better surface of contact between the wires in the strand, an increase in the metallic area and a more uniform distribution of the tension on wires. By compacting the outer strands we are able to achieve;
- Significant increase in breaking load of the wire rope due to the higher metallic area.
- Increase in flexibility.
- Increase stability of the strand to side forces, and crushing.
- The smoother surface will decrease the indentations on sheaves and drums, and allows easier motion of the elements.
- A reduction in permanent elongation within its working range.
It is commonly used on cranes as boom hoist ropes, winch lines, clam shell buckets, logging mainlines, anchor lines, trolley lines and trailer loaders.
Special end fittings are available on all wire ropes please contact us for a quotation. All pricing is per foot.
