Key information needed when preparing a steel wire rope order:

1. № of standard (DIN 3066);

2. Diameter of the rope (measured in milimeters, for example diam 12 mm);

3. Construction & type of core. Construction of the strand is indicated by the number of wires, individually arranged, beginning with the outermost. (For example 6 х 19 + IWRC – number of strands in the rope X number of wires in each strand + type of core, independent wire rope core IWRC, fiber core FC, or independent wire strand core WSC);

4. Surface material (galvanized or ungalvanized);

5. Tensile strength. Measured in N/mm2 (ISO) or kg/mm2 (Metric) and depends on the physico-chemical composition of the steel from which the wires are manufactured;

6. Direction and type of lay of the rope strands and wires within the strands (right lang lay, left lang lay, right regular lay, left regular lay);

7. Lubrication - without lubrication / “dry” rope or lubricated. If lubrication is required there are different degrees of lubrication. The type of lubricant needs to be accordant to the future application of the steel wire rope;
