Flex-X® 6 Wire Rope

Most applications for wire rope are extremely demanding. Wire rope must resist crushing, bending fatigue and abrasion. For example, clamshell closing lines must resist bending fatigue and boom hoists are subject to pressures that cause crushing. Overhead hoists test the stability and strength of a wire rope. All drum-related applications demand a rope that will spool and operate smoothly and dependably.
