Compacted Strands

Compacted and rotary swaged strands

Almost all verope products are made out of compacted strands. The strands are properly roller-compacted during the production process to improve the contact conditions between both the strands and the individual wires.

Benefits of verope compacted strands:

  • Smooth surface
  • Linear contact between individual wires
  • Better contact between the rope surface and sheaves
  • Much higher breaking load with higher metallic area
  • Good constructional stability for multilayer spooling systems
  • Far more resistance to abrasion and corrosion
  • Reduced drum crushing
