A cable or rope – it is one of the main load-bearing elements of a type that is an integral part of most of the lifting equipment, road construction and other machinery. Typically, a modern cable characteristic metallic structure, and what actually is guaranteed his strength and reliability. Although there are varieties of rope sufficiently large number, it can be not only metal but also synthetic or even plant. (Not to be confused with ConocoPhillips!). As practice shows, by far the greatest demand is just wire rope (cable). Areas of application are broad enough – from the creation of manual hoists and ending with enough large-scale cranes. In the construction field such stainless steel cable is often used as a carrier of different structures, without which it is difficult to do on the site. It is also used and, if necessary towing vehicles of any type, while creating false roads, etc.
The wide popularity of this wire rope due to the fact that the material to endure the impact of external factors, and almost no exposed to wear. The constituent parts are the steel rope and steel wire core and integral components of it should be a special cable lubricant with corrosion protection and antiseptic impregnation. Lifting equipment may be equipped with a single rope or double lay rope, depending on the requirements that apply this technique. Under a single rope, is understood compound in a unit of two or three layers of steel wire or the use of a single layer and double lay rope – a structure consisting of at least six strands. Often, depending on the type of cable selected and the remaining attributes of lifting equipment. Optimally balanced type of steel wire rope, construction and properties of the elements of steel wire rope, in the specific operating conditions the steel rope, largely determines the durability operation of the war and the normal operation of lifting equipment.
