    • Wire rope consists of cold drawn steel wires which are twisted into strand.

    • Two types of windings are present in wire ropes i.e regular lay and lang lay

    • Lang ropes offer more resistance to fatigue failure and abrasive wear

    • Strands in rope and wires in strand are twisted in same direction in lang lay ropes

    • Regular lay ropes spin when load is applied and have shorter life
