Explore our range of lifting wire ropes and discover how they can effectively optimise your operations!

In industry and production, fundamental elements are sometimes neglected despite their vital importance in day-to-day operations. One such element is lifting wire ropes, discrete but essential elements that facilitate the movement and handling of heavy loads, whether in industrial environments or in specific applications.

Choosing the right lifting wire rope is crucial to effectively optimise operations. Here are some important considerations to keep in mind:

1. Loading capacity. It is essential to select a wire rope that has the appropriate capacity for the loads to be handled. The maximum weight that the cable will have to support under the foreseen working conditions must be accurately calculated.

2. Material and construction​. The material of the wire rope (e.g. galvanised steel, stainless steel) and its construction (number of wires, arrangement of wires) must be suitable for the specific environment and working conditions. Corrosion resistance, durability and flexibility of the wire rope should be considered.

3. Length and diameter. The length and diameter of the wire rope must be adapted to the dimensions of the load and the characteristics of the lifting system. It is important to ensure that the wire rope is long enough to reach the desired height and that its diameter is compatible with the sheaves and other components of the system.

4. Regulations and standards. It is advisable to choose a wire rope that complies with the applicable quality and safety regulations and standards, such as EN 12385 for lifting ropes. This ensures that the wire rope has been manufactured and tested in accordance with internationally recognised requirements.

5. Maintenance and service life. Consider the ease of maintenance of the wire rope and its expected service life. Some wire ropes may require regular lubrication or other care to maintain optimum performance over time.

6. Compatibility with existing equipment. Make sure the wire rope is compatible with existing lifting equipment and accessories, such as sheaves, hooks and shackles. This will ensure smooth and safe operation of the lifting system.

7. Cost and value for money. It is always important to consider the cost of the wire rope in relation to its quality and performance. Opting for the cheapest wire rope could result in safety issues or poorer long-term performance, so it is crucial to balance cost with the quality and efficiency of the wire rope.


Certified quality standards.

EN 12385 are European standards that apply to steel wire ropes for various uses, including lifting and load handling ropes. These standards set out technical and manufacturing requirements to ensure the quality and safety of wire ropes in a variety of industrial and lifting applications.

Lifting ropes complying with EN 12385 standards are designed to withstand heavy loads and demanding working conditions safely and reliably. These standards specify characteristics such as material composition, mechanical properties, dimensions and tolerances, test methods and marking requirements.

By purchasing lifting ropes that comply with EN 12385 standards, you can be assured that you are buying products that have been manufactured and tested in accordance with internationally recognised standards, ensuring their quality and reliability in lifting applications.



Applications of lifting wire ropes.

Some of the most common applications of lifting ropes in industry and load handling:

1. Industrial cranes: Lifting ropes are widely used in industrial cranes to lift and move heavy loads in environments such as warehouses, loading docks, construction, and manufacturing sites.

2. Lifts and hoists: In lift and hoist systems, hoist ropes are essential to support the car and move it safely between different floors.

3. Lifting equipment: In lifting equipment such as hoists and winches, hoisting ropes are used to raise and lower heavy objects in a controlled and precise manner.

4. Construction machinery: In construction applications, wire ropes are used in tower cranes, mobile cranes, and other lifting machines to lift building materials such as beams, panels, and concrete.

5. Shipbuilding industry: Lifting ropes are essential in shipbuilding and ship repair, used in quay cranes, cargo cranes, and shipboard hoisting systems.

6. Mining: In the mining industry, wire ropes are used in hoisting equipment such as winches and hoists to lift heavy loads in underground and surface environments.

7. Diverse industrial applications: In addition, wire ropes are used in a variety of industrial applications, such as in the oil and gas, power, material handling, and machinery manufacturing industries, where safe and efficient lifting of loads is required.
