Python® Super 8C; High Performance, High Strength, Coated Core (HiPac™ Compacted)
Super 8C is the classic 'upgrade' rope for all overhead crane types for increased rope service life performance while maintaining the ability to operate with fleet angles up to 4°. The 8-strand construction provides an excellent combination of flexibility, fatigue life, and abrasion resistance.
This rope is also the ideal choice for lattice boom mobile crane boom hoist rope applications where compression resistance is required for multi-layer drum spooling in combination with high fatigue resistance in the boom bridle.
8-strand high performance overhead crane and boom hoist wire rope with a plastic coated core. This special engineered hard plastic prevents metal to metal contact between outer- and inner strands and greatly reduces internal, non-detectable, wear and abrasion resulting in increased fatigue life, plus it provides for permanent core lubrication.
This rope is strand compacted for increased surface contact area between rope and sheave thus reducing sheave and drum wear.
EN 10264, 12385 where applicable.
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.

Python® Super 8C
Overhead Crane Wire Rope
8 x 26 WS
8-strand overhead crane wire rope with a plastic coated core to prevent inner undetectable fatigue breaks. The plastic coating also increases fatigue life and ensures permanent core lubrication. Super-8C is a strand compacted rope for higher fatigue resistance, increased strength and for multiple layer drum abrasion resistance.
Python® Super 8C is available in right- and in left lay configurations to adopt to the corresponding drum groove direction.
Furthermore, using right- and left hand rope on the same crane results in a rope system which is very stable against block twisting.
