No rotation performance
It is important to determine if you need to use a non-rotating wire rope. The
The 6- and 8-strand steel wire ropes are generally used unless the load rotates when using a single set of ropes or the wire rope twists in multiple rope sets may cause usage problems. The
When a load is applied, the wire rope produces:
If both ends are fixed, "torque" occurs.
If one end is released, "rotation" occurs.
When the two ends of the wire rope are fixed, the applied tension creates a "torque" at the fixed end.
When one end of the wire rope is released, the applied load rotates the wire rope.
When the applied load increases, the generated torque or rotation also increases. The degree of torque or rotation generated by the wire rope can be affected by the wire rope structure. Knowing what happens when the load is applied to the wire rope, choose the right type of wire rope. It should be noted that all wire ropes will rotate to a certain degree when the load is applied
The non-rotating wire rope ensures that the problems associated with kinking and load rotation of the wire rope are minimized.
