Types of Wire rope

Most ropes are made with uncoated (bright) wire that is manufactured from high-carbon steel. The chemistry of the steel used and the practice employed in drawing the wire are varied to supply the ultimate combination of tensile strength, fatigue resistance and wear resistance in the finished rope.

  • Gabaswire 619

    6x19

    Steel & Fiber Core

    The 6x19 Classification of wire rope is the most widely used. With its combination of flexibility and wear resistance, rope in this class can be suited to the specific needs of diverse types of machinery and equipment.

  • Gabaswire 637

    6x37

    Steel & Fiber Core

    The 6x37 Class of wire rope is characterized by a relatively large number of wires used in each strand. Ropes of this class are among the most flexible, due to a greater number of wires per strand. However their resistance to abrasion is less than ropes in the 6x19 class.

  • Gabaswire 636

    6x36

    Steel & Fiber Core

    This wire rope classification consists of 6 outer strands of 36 wires, each with a fiber core (FC) or IWRC core, and is also available in galvanized or bright. The uses are similar to the 6x19 classification ropes, but are used in applications where more flexibility is required.

  • Gabaswire 625

    6 x 25

    Steel & Fiber Core

    6 x 25 classification wire rope provides an excellent balance between fatigue and wear resistance. It gives excellent service with sheaves and drums of a moderate size. 6 x 25 classification ropes contain 6 strands with 15 through 26 wires per strand, no more than 12 of which are outside wires.

  • Gabaswire 197

    19x7

    Fiber & Steel Core

    The 19x7 type rope has just 12 outer strands. European ropes tend to be of this type. Using the rope to it’s maximum fatigue life will cause the rope to deteriorate from the inside out.

  • Gabaswire 819

    8x19

    Steel & Fiber Core

    The 8x19 classification, rotation-resistant ropes, are recommended for elevator purposes with a normal tensile grade of 1370 N/mm2 and 1570N/mm2 with sisal core. A special lubricant is used for this type of rope.
