Special Wire Rope Products
19X19 Non-Rotating Wire
Sometimes you need wire rope that doesn’t rotate, especially under tension. Rasmussen can help. By using at least two layers of strands, and having the outer strands lay in the opposite direction of the inner layer, you can have strong, reliable, rotation-resistant rope. There’s a variety of different types of non-rotating wire. Reach out. We’ve got what you need.
19X7 Non-Rotating Wire
If you need a rotation-resistant rope, with an emphasis on load capacity and sturdy chords—the 19X7 might be for you. With inner and outer strands laying in opposite direction, the rope offers spin resistance even under tension. With fewer, but stronger chords, this rope is stiff and will require large drums and sheaves. Give us a call if you think this rope might be right for you!
Plastic Filled Wire Rope
If you have demanding lift requirements, but also need a rope with bending resilience—plastic filled wire rope may be what you’re looking for. By filling the space in-between the internal strands with plastic, the rope benefits from improved bending fatigue and resistance to internal and external wear. If you think this might be what you’re job needs, give us a call!
Swaged & Compacted Wire Rope
If you need rope that’s resistant to wear, resistant to crushing, all while having unmatched strength—you might need swaged wire rope. Swaged wire is compacted by a rotary swager after the wire is closed. The wire rope has decreased diameter with increasing tensile strength. This rope may have decreased bending fatigue resistance—give us a call if you think this rope might be what you need!

There’s a huge variety of special use wire rope products. The five classes we’ve listed on this page are only a sampling of the special wire rope products we offer. If you’re interested in the lift standards of a specific class of rope—give us a call!
