Wire Rope

Wire rope is made of many small wires that have been pulled through a machine and twisted to form a rope. XIP is the most common grade for wire rope. We stock this grade in sizes from 1/32” to 1-1/2” XXIP can be special ordered if needed for a special application. XXIP has a 10% higher nominal strength than XIP. Which allows people who need this grade to use a smaller diameter wire rope and still have the same capacities as XIP.

All wire rope of the same classification, size, grade and core have the same nominal strength and weight per foot. Different constructions within each classification differ in working characteristics. These characteristics must be considered when you are selecting a wire rope. The two most popular classifications are 6x19 and 6x37, with either a wire center core or a fiber core.
