Super high strength wire rope mainly used for engineered cable assemblies,
counterweight ropes, winch lines, boom pendants, extension- and retraction
cables, etc. Overhead crane applications for sizes above 3/4" (19
mm) may require some restrictions as to fleet angle and lay direction.
Call before you select this rope.
Python® Ultra is our highest strength rope available. It is fully
swage compacted resulting in an extreme smooth outer rope surface and
the removal of nearly all of the constructional stretch. This is an important
feature if you require a low stretch rope for cables assemblies. Ultra
is an 'all parallel' construction type meaning that there are no wire
cross-overs within the rope body to ensure maximum fatigue life. Ultra
provides a strength increase of up to 53% over regular 6-strand constructions.
Refer to the conservatively calculated strength tables.
Python® Ultra requires corresponding drum grooving directions; e.g.
use a right hand lay rope if the drum is left hand grooved. Large fleet
angles may cause high strands or core protrusion because the rope will
roll rather than glide into the sheave groove. Any introduction of torque
into (any) wire rope will cause structural damages.
