Rasmussen Wire Rope: Swaged Wire
Swaged wire rope—also known as compacted wire rope—is a versatile rope style that is wear resistant, crushing resistant, and stronger than other ropes of a similar diameter. Since swaged wire is compacted by a rotary swager after the wire is closed, it decreases the diameter of the rope while also increasing its tensile strength.
Rasmussen has been in the wire rope game since 1947. With an unmatched selection of wire rope options and unmatched industry experience, we’re the preferred wire rope partner for businesses across the country. Work with our team and get equipped with the right slings, rigging accessories, swaged wire ropes, and any materials you need to get the job done.
Special Wire Rope Products
3/4" 6X26 Swaged
The 3/4″ 6X26 is a popular wire rope built to withstand a variety of construction project needs. Its compacted design and increased steel area allows for higher crushing resistance and improved drum spooling. Its smooth outer strand also improves the rope’s sheave wear resistance, makes the rope less prone to snagging, and improves flexibility while under load. 3/4″ 6X26 swaged wire rope is commonly used in logging projects for winch lines, skylines, haul backs, and chokers.
7/8" 8X31 8-PAC Swaged
Our 7/8″ 8X31 8-PAC swaged wire rope is a multifunctional, compacted 8-strand rope used for a wide variety of applications due to its high bending fatigue resistance and firm rope structure. The strand compaction also provides increased resistance to crushing, improves drum spooling, improves operational and sheave wear, and has a longer service life than regular wire rope. This torque-resistant wire rope is commonly used in crane applications or where severe bending occurs.
7/8" 6X31 SUPER PAC Swaged
7/8″ 6X31 Super Pac swaged wire rope is the ideal wire rope for applications where abrasion and drum crushing are an issue. With an IWRC or fiber core, this double-compacted product provides increased abrasion and drum crushing resistance compared to regular rope. The double compaction process for this Super-Pac swaged rope creates a wire rope that has an increased minimum breaking strength, superior fatigue resistance, and reduces drum and sheave wear.
9/16” 6X25 Swaged
9/16” 6X25 swaged wire ropes are a trusted and reliable compact rope style that’s regularly used across many industries. This rope style is popular because of its resistance to abrasion, fatigue, and drum crushing when compared to other wire rope styles. If you have a project that requires strength under regular fatigue while also being able to hold up under moderate bending, this swaged style will get the job done.
