We have a large inventory of wire rope, maintained for immediate delivery.
- Stocking well over 20 million feet in our various locations.
- Sizes from 1/4” to 3” diameter and 9 mm to 52 mm diameter in all types and constructions.
- Stocking both domestic and non-domestic wire rope from all the major wire rope manufacturers around the world.

Wire Rope Guide To Examination
Typical Examples of Wire Rope Deterioration:
Mechanical damage due to rope movement over sharp edge projection while under load.
Localized wear due to abrasion on supporting structure.
Narrow path of wear, resulting in fatigue fractures caused by working in a grossly oversize groove or over small support rollers.
Two parallel paths of broken wires indicative of bending through an undersize groove in the sheave.
Severe wear associated with high tread pressure.
Severe wear in Langs Lay caused by abrasion.
Internal corrosion while external surface shows little evidence of deterioration.
Typical wire fractures as a result of bend fatigue.
Wire fractures at the strand or core interface as distinct from ‘crown’ fractures.
Break up of IWRC, resulting from high stress application.
Looped wires as a result of torsional imbalance and/or shock loading.
Typical example of localized wear and deformation.
Multi strand rope ‘bird caged’ due to torsional imbalance.
Protrusion of rope center, resulting from build up of turn.
Substantial wear and severe internal corrosion.
