Every wire has three basic components: the wires, strands and core. The wires are predominantly constructed from high-carbon steel, stainless steel, Mild Steel and Copper.


Wire rope generally comes with a "bright" or uncoated finish but can be coated with zinc, nylon, L.D. and P.V.C etc for special purpose. It should be understood that these coatings can affect the characteristics and breaking strength of the wire rope.


When sending enquiry or order of steel wire rope, please furnish the following information to quote you the exact rope as per your requirements.

Length: Specify the correct length as per your requirement. Too long a rope will negatively influence coiling and will result in premature rope failure and subsequent wastage. A too short rope will not be able to last its full life. 

Diameter: Specify the rope diameter in mm as per IS standard.

Coating/ Finish: A rope can either be Ungalvanised, Galvanised or Coated. In rope nomenclature, ungalvanised rope is also known as black. Do specify if coating is required.
Tensile Strength: This property signifies the strength/ load bearing capacity of the wire rope. Usually, if you procure a rope as per IS specifications, the usual designations are 1770 N/mm2, 1960 N/mm2, or 2160 N/mm2. The other less frequently used tensile designations are 1420 and 1570 N/ mm2. Alternatively, in place of N/mm2, we can use 160 Kg/mm2, 180 Kg/mm2, and 200 Kg/mm2.
Construction: A rope is generally made up of number of strands twisted around a core. The strands are themselves formed from a number of wires twisted in a helical fashion. Example: 6X36 (14/7/&7/7/1) IS: 2266/89. This description means that there are 6 strands in the rope, each consisting of 36 wires. The number in the brackets indicate the make up of the strands, starting from the outer wire layer, There are 3 wire layers (separated by "/" sign. the first layer (outer consists of 14 wires, the second layer consists of 7 wires, and 7 small wires and the third layer has 7 wires over a core wire. 
Core Type: The core of a steel wire rope can be either fiber or steel. In case of steel core, the alternatives can be Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC) or Wire Strand Core (WSC). The IWRC is preferred as a core where resistance to crushing or heat is required. 
Lay: There are two different methods of laying up of wire ropes, namely ORDINARY (REGULAR) LAY and LANGS LAY. In the ordinary lay rope the wires of the strands are laid in one direction and the strands are laid in the rope in the opposite direction. Ropes laid in this manner are suitable for all general work. In the Langs Lay rope, the direction of the both the wires in the strands as well as the strands in the rope are in the same direction. Ropes made up of langs lay tend to wear more evenly and are more flexible than ordinary lay rope. They are extensively used for winding and haulage duty, and their usage is limited as compared to Ordinary lay ropes.
Hand of lay:This term refers to the direction in which the strands are laid up in the rope, as distinct from the direction of wires. Right hand lay is the usual standard adopted by rope manufacturers and all ropes are supplied with this lay unless otherwise specified. The use of left hand lay is usually confined to ropes used for drilling purposes, to prevent unscrewing of rods, or in connection with right hand lay ropes in on cranes and elevators to counteract the spin. Usually, a Left-hand lay rope is used in combination with a right Hand lay rope. 
Minimum Breaking Load: Minimum Braking Load is the load at which the rope will break. If possible, the same should also be furnished, as it aids in checking on the specifications of the offered rope.
Refer Breaking Load Table.
.Preformed or Non-preformed: A rope can be pre-formed or non-pre-formed. Usually, a general engineering rope is pre-formed, whereas an elevator rope is non-pre-formed. 

Every rope is manufactured in conformance to specific quality conformation standards. The same may be either IS or Indian standards, DIN, BS, JIS, API or any other standard as specified by the customer.

Fittings/ End terminations

In certain applications, you may need to attach additional fittings, such as thimbles, sockets (spelter/ swaged), rings, loops (plain/ bucket) which can be supplied as per customers' requirements.

Usually, a steel wire rope can be packed either in wooden or steel Reels or coils. Minimum length of wooden reel up to 12mm shall be 610 meter & for higher sizes 305 meter. Cut length can also be supplied.
Area of Application

In addition to the above specification, we usually ask for the area of application of a rope, so that we can ourselves judge whether the specific rope that is being offered is the suitable one or not. It aids as an additional check for us so that we can ensure that only the rope with the best possible combination of properties is reaching you.

If lubrication is required, do specify the same.

If special testing is required from external Testing agencies, the same should be specified while sending the enquiry. Otherwise, as a valid proof of the quality, each and every rope is supplied along with a Test Certificate.
