Download RR-W-410E

Multi-wire strands laid geometrically around a core.

Wire rope is specified by the number of strands in the rope, the number of wires in each strand, and a description of the type of construction. For example, the notation 6x7 FC means that the rope has six strands, and there are 7 wires in each strand around a fiber core.

  • A greater steel area in the rope results in higher crush resistance and signifi cantly enhanced drum spooling.
  • A smooth outer strand profi le improves rope wear resistance and reduces sheave and drum wear.
  •  Greater contact area between each strand reduces inter-strand nicking and increases fl exibility under load, enhancing fatigue life and performance.
Cushion6

CUSHION® 6 ROPES

Table Summary:

Cushion® 6 increases rope performance and reduces equipment maintenance.

View Cushion® 6 Ropes Table

    Cushion® 6 Ropes Information:

  • A well-proven 6x26/36 IWRC rope, specially designed for plastic enhancement, provides an excellent performance/strength combination.

  •  WRI’s exclusive plastic enhancement process maximizes impregnation that cushions and separates the rope strands from the steel core. This creates a more balanced rope in which stress is evenly distributed and inter-strand nicking is virtually eliminated resulting in improved performance and better resistance to shock loading.
  • Full plastic enhancement signifi cantly reduces stretch and minimizes drum crushing which improves performance and reduces downtime.

  •  Full rope cushioning minimizes moisture and contaminant penetration reducing internal abrasion and corrosion.
  •  A completely round outer rope profi le maximizes the contact area between the rope and the equipment, enhancing rope wear resistance and signifi cantly reducing sheave and drum wear.
  •  Specially formulated lubrication provides protection for individual wires, reducing friction and maintaining freedom of movement between the wires and the plastic.
  •  External markings on the rope make it easy to identify Cushion 6 high performance ropes.
