6x26 Swaged

  • Greater strength than 6x26  
  • Resistant to drum crushing
6x26 Swaged

These ropes offer greater strength than standard ropes of the same diameter while providing greater resistance to drum crushing, scrubbing and similar wear.

When producing our 6x26 Swaged rope, we utilize a rotary swaging process to produce a compact cross-section with minimum voids and greater surface area on outer wires.  Also, we utilize a special wire chemistry in the outer wires of the strands to further enhance the performance of our swaged ropes.  The result is a very compact design that helps reduce wear to sheaves and minimizes crushing of the rope on the drum.  Exactly what you’d expect from a leader.
