Main Applications

Overhead crane hoisting rope.

Rope Characteristics

Extremely flexible rope types with up to 288 single wires (8x36) in the outer strands. Better fatigue performance and fatigue life expectancy than 6x19/6x36. Due to the larger number of outer wires these ropes tend to be more sensitive to mechanical damages.

All 8-strand constructions require proper sheave- and drum groove dimensions. Undersized and/or worn sheaves will immediately result in rope deformations, waviness, or high strands. These ropes require extra care during installation (no reverse bend spooling).

Standard

ASTM 1023, Table 18, 19
8 x 19 Seale, Standard: EN 12385-4:2002 (8)

These 8-strand rope types are NOT rotation resistant or non-rotating.
Selected sizes available in right regular lay (RRL) AND left regular lay (LRL).

Breaking Strengths

Note: The maximum CAPACITY, WORKING LOAD LIMIT (WLL), or LINE PULL of the rope usually is 1/5 of the below stated values. For specific information consult the standards applicable to your rope application.
