Compacted wire rope, also known as swaged wire rope, has a greater steel area which results in higher crush resistance and significantly enhanced drum spooling. A smooth outer strand profile improves rope wear resistance and reduces sheave and drum wear while the greater contact area between each strand reduces inter-strand nicking and increases flexibility under load, enhancing fatigue life and overall performance.
DyPac 6 compacted single layer rope delivers high performance and reduces equipment maintenance as the DyPac compaction process increases the steel area of the individual strands, producing a rope with greater strength and increased lifting capability. We offer DYTY-6 compacted wire rope (6x26) in addition to compacted bright wire rope (35x7 and 19x19).
