In this full length Crane User’s guide, you’ll gain valuable insight to help you choose the right wire ropes for your crane application, care and maintain your wire ropes and to identify and prevent common problems in the field.
No single rope can do it all. In this reference document, you will learn how the characteristics of specific ropes should greatly influence your rope choice including: strength, fatigue resistance, crushing resistance, resistance to metal loss and deformation, and resistance to rotation.
In this article, Dennis Fetter, WireCo WorldGroup Sr. VP and Chief Technical Officer, discusses the importance of understanding wire rope crushing and explores methods to minimize crushing on cranes.
In this Product Bulletin, you will learn about the various causes of crushing, the effects of crushing and how to properly evaluate the crushing. Additionally, observations about drum crushing from WireCo WorldGroup engineers are included.
In this product bulletin, you will learn why Category 1 Ropes are special wire ropes that must be handled differently than other wire ropes. Understand why WireCo WorldGroup recommends not removing the welded ends. And, learn the proper step-by-step recommended procedure for cutting and preparing Category 1 Ropes.
In this reference document, you will learn WireCo WorldGroup’s preferred technique for installing rope onto a crane. Additionally, you will learn tips on breaking in your new wire rope, relieving twist, rigging in tight quarters, and cleaning and lubricating ropes.
Despite their durability and strength, wire ropes used on cranes will wear out and need to be retired from service. This reference document will better explain why regular inspection is so crucial to your long-term success. You will learn how often to inspect, how to inspect, and when to replace your wire ropes.
Learn how to properly install wire rope on mobile cranes. Two factors are key to proper installation no matter what type of equipment, or which wire rope is being used: making sure the rope is free of twist and assuring that the rope is tightly spooled on the drum.
In this Product Bulletin, you will learn about the new rope description format that WireCo WorldGroup will follow in all of our product descriptions. This format will adopt symbols and designations that are part of ISO, ASTM, and other industry standards and specifications.
In this reference document, you will learn about all rotation-resistant crane rope specifications. Additionally, you can study a Minimum Breaking Forces chart, and learn the definitions of Category 1 and Category 2 rotation-resistant ropes.
