Swaged Wire Ropes

6 x 19 and 6 x 36 classification swaged rope

These ropes offer greater strength than standard ropes of the same diameter while providing greater resistance to drum crushing, scrubbing and similar surface wear. To enhance the performance of our swaged ropes in the field, we utilize a special wire chemistry in the outer wires of the strands. Then during production, the rope is rotary swaged to produce a compact cross-section with minimum voids and greater surface area on outer wires. In addition to reducing rope surface wear, this compact design helps reduce wear to sheaves and minimizes crushing of the rope on the drum. These ropes are stiffer and less fatigue resistant than standard ropes.
