CORE™ Industrial Wire rope slings are a common choice for lifting when you need strength, durability and resistance to abrasion or elements. The twisted strands of heavy duty wires are extremely durable and they create a high tensile strength. Wire rope slings can be assembled in a variety of configurations and sizes for nearly any lifting application. Wire rope is constructed of various grades of steel making it resistant to elements such as moisture, heat, UV and most chemicals. Some large industries that utilize wire rope slings are Mining, Oil/Gas, Crane, Construction, Logging, Utilities and Marine.
Wire rope consists of a number of small individual wires that are formed into strands. The strands are then twisted together to form one solid rope. This is referred to as the wire rope class which is indicated by the number of strands and then a range of wires per strand.
CORE™ Industrial Wire Rope Sling Features:
- Resistant to abrasion (unlike nylon/polyester)
- Resistant to heat (wire core/ not fiber core)
Grades of Wire Rope:
- IWRC – Independent Wire Rope Core
- IPS – Improved Plow Steel
- EIPS – Extra Improved Plow Steel
- EEIPS – Extra Extra Improved Plow Steel
Common Wire Rope Configurations for Sling Production:
- The composition of wire rope used in lifting slings is typically a 6×19 or 6×37 Class.
- Class 6×19 is a 6-strand rope that contains 19 to 26 wires per strand.
- Class 6×37 is a 6-strand rope that contains 27 to 49 wires per strand.
Check Out Our Wire Rope Slings:
Single Leg Wire Rope Slings is a versatile sling that features an eye loop swaged on both ends of the sling. Single Leg slings work well in all hitch types.
Sliding Choker Wire Rope Slings are designed with a hook that slides freely between the eyes allowing one to create an adjustable hitch around the load.
Cable laid wire rope slings slings are designed for applications that require flexibility and resistance to kinking.
2 Leg Bridle Slings are constructed of two wire rope assemblies that are attached to an Oblong Ring. These slings can be fitted with a variety of hook ends.
3 Leg Bridle Wire Rope Slings are constructed of three wire rope assemblies that attach to an Oblong Ring. These slings are great for unbalanced loads.
4 Leg Bridle Wire Rope Slings are designed for balanced or unbalanced loads and for heavy lifts when the weight can easily be distributed over four points.
