    General Information on Wire Ropes

    Wire rope is made by plaiting strands of wire - normally medium carbon steel - into a thick cable.The strands are formed around a core. The strands in wire ropes are made of wire twisted together.Strands with smaller diameter wires are less abrasion resistant and more fatigue resistant. Strands made with thicker lengths of wire are more abrasion resistant and less fatigue resistant.

    The main components of a wire rope is shown below

    In the above example, each individual wire is arranged around a central wire to form a 7-wire strand. Six of these strands are formed around a central core to make a wire rope. The rope is specified as 6x7 (6/1) - i.e. six strands each of seven wires.
