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.
