Metal cable has the strength and durability to be one of the most trusted building materials in countless industries. Industrial cables are specially made for flexibility, extreme strength and resistance to abrasions. A tightly wound network of individual strands gives cables an unmatched integrity, as even damage to a single strand will not drastically reduce the strength of the cable itself.
Applications for Quality Stainless Steel Cable
- Construction: Vinyl coated cable and other types are very valuable in construction.
- Engineering: From bridges to buildings, cables give the right balance of strength and flexibility.
- Machinery: Large and small, countless machines rely on cables to function.
- Aviation: Stainless steel aircraft cables help firmly hold aircrafts in place and can be used in other applications requiring corrosion and temperature resistance.
Wire rope is one of the strongest forms of “rope” derived from tightly twisted strands of metal. As a component, it is of tremendous value in machinery or structural design: Unlike linked chains, stainless steel wire rope maintains its integrity in the unlikely event of a “weak link,” where all other strands combined can share the load.
