High strength standard 6-strand rope for applications which require a
crush resistant rope to be used on multiple layer winding systems; e.g.
boom hoist on lattice boom mobile- and tower cranes. This rope has also
shown remarkable performance gains as main hoist rope on port container
cranes and on some overhead crane applications.
Python® Construct-6 is a swaged rope which is constructed from specialty
made engineered and sized 6-strand wire rope. The basic wire rope is already
manufactured with purpose intend to be swage compacted into the finished
product. The degree of swage compacting is carefully selected to ensure
the best compromise between crush- and fatigue resistance. The strength
increase compared to standard 6-strand ropes varies between about plus
10% to 35% depending on rope diameter.
Python® Construct-6 is available as a 25-wire (6 F-V) or 36-wire (6WS-V)
construction, in left- and right lay, bright or galvanized. Choose 6 F-V
as Boom Hoist rope, 6 WS-V for single layer drum hoisting.
Because of the swage compacting process, most of the rope's initial stretch
(constructional stretch) has already been removed.
