Steel wire ropes fatigue resistance

- Apr 18, 2018 -

When the wire rope is wound on a pulley or a reel, the wire rope may be damaged due to bending fatigue. The number of pulleys used, the diameter of the pulleys and drums, and the load conditions will affect the degree of damage to the ropes.

When bending fatigue is the main cause of wire rope damage, wire ropes of small size steel wire should be selected when selecting wire ropes, such as 6×36WS (14/7&7/7/1), and 6×19S (9/9/1) cannot be selected. )Structural ropes are very important.

The good anti-fatigue performance of the steel wire rope can save the cost, which can be achieved by selecting the "Dyform" wire rope.


The surface of the "compacted" wire rope is smooth, which improves the contact condition between the wire rope and the pulley and reduces the wear of the wire rope and the pulley. The metal cross-sectional area increases, the contact condition between the steel wire and the steel wire is improved, and the internal stress during the use of the steel wire rope is reduced, so that the bending fatigue life of the steel wire rope is prolonged and the cost is reduced.

This figure shows that when replacing a Blue Strand 6×36 wire rope with an Endurance Dyform 6 wire rope, the service life of the wire rope is “doubled”. To replace the wire rope structure with a compact structure, such as changing 18x7 to Endurance Dyform 18 or 35x7 to Endurance Dyform 34LR, the service life of the wire rope will also double.
