Wire ropes are available in various types and constructions, each having specific uses. Therefore, it is important to select the rope according to the intended applications. Namely, it is necessary to see what properties are required for the rope to be used correctly. The properties cover breaking strength, flexibility, resistance to bending fatigue, anti-friction, resistance to deformation, non-rotation and anti-corrosion. In most cases, the key point of selecting the rope for a particular application is consideration of the above properties.
