Steel wire rope
Steel wire rope consists of a number of strands and wires that are wrapped around a core in regular geometric shapes, and in choosing the right steel wire rope in cranes, lifts and various industries, the following points should be considered.
1-The diameter of rope:
(Dia) which is stated in millimeters "mm" or inches "" "which must correspond to the drum groove of the device.
2- Steel wire rope structure: Construction which is selected according to the function of the device and its application in cranes.
