Python® Super 8V; High Strength Crane Rope (ForcePac™ Compacted)
Super 8V is an upgrade rope for all overhead crane types which require a stronger rope to increase the crane capacity while maintaining the ability to operate with fleet angles of up to 4°. The 8-strand ForcePac™ construction provides an excellent combination of strength and crush resistance. Also used in looping- or accumulator tower applications.
8-strand high performance overhead crane 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.
Type 'V' is a ForcePac™ type for increased strength and surface contact area between rope and sheave thus reducing sheave and drum wear.
Super 8V is up to 30% stronger than regular 6-strand EIPS ropes. Check listings for details.
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 8V (ForcePac™)
Overhead Crane Wire Rope
8 x 25 Filler
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-8V is a swage compacted rope for better abrasion resistance and increased strength.
Python® Super 8V 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.
